From Mark Green and The Sonoma County Conservation ActionNetwork...

The environmental majority on the Windsor Town Council has been targeted for recall by a group of citizens of generally pro-development orientation. Alleging that the majority is "bankrupting the town" despite the town's strong balance sheet, recall proponents are well-funded and have claimed a suspiciously high percentage of their funding as being "small contributions", so they don't have to reveal who gave them the money. They have refused to reveal their funders. If history is any lesson in Windsor, most of their money is probably from developers and land speculators.

The targeted majority has just implemented a strong growth-management ordinance for Windsor, and is working on a voter-approved 20-year Urban Growth Boundary. It seems pretty clear that this is why they've been targeted for recall--developers see their hopes of millions of dollars in profits from sprawl development going down the drain.

THE URBAN GROWTH BOUNDARY CAMPAIGN WILL BE HEAVILY FOUGHT BY PRO-GROWTH INTERESTS. THEY NEED MONEY.

The UGB campaign committee is holding a fundraiser at the Hop Kiln Winery (6050 Westside Rd., Healdsburg) on October 12 (Sunday), from 2-6PM. If you haven't been their, it's BEAUTIFUL (I am admittedly biased, as I got married there). There will be catered food, wine, and music by The Blenders.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 on the day of the event. But I urge anyone who can afford it to send more if they can, and to attend the event to show their support.
