June Meeting: LA's PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FUTURE




CLUB MEETING: Thursday, June 19th, 7:00pm-9:00pm


PLANNING LA COUNTY'S PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION FUTURE with DENNY ZANE, Executive Director of MOVE LA and former mayor of Santa Monica

Move LA's mission is to build a broad constituency that will advocate for the development of a comprehensive, diverse, robust, clean and financially sound public transportation system for Los Angeles County. Move LA also champions strategies to accelerate system implementation and policies to ensure that there are prosperous and healthy neighborhoods around stations where people of all ages and incomes can live, work and thrive.

In other words, MOVE LA is getting ahead of the curve on building coalitions and advocating plans for public transportation and associated neighborhood development that will serve county residents well into the future.    

This directly affects each and every one of us! A can't miss event.

Also on the agenda:

NOVEMBER BALLOT MEASURE:

Medical/legal issues: Drug and Alcohol Testing of Doctors, Medical Negligence Lawsuits (raising the $250,000 damages cap on pain and suffering in medical malpractice suits.) Discussion on what this ballot measure really means to you as a consumer, to your doctor and to the future of medical care in California. YES or NO? It's complicated.  


SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE CLOSURES

How do these office closures adversely affect those who need face-to-face assistance. What, if anything, can we or should we do about this?


UPCOMING CLUB ELECTIONS

Club elections take place at our September meeting, with the new board term starting in January. Isn't it time that you considered stepping up to the satisfying challenge of being a club officer (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) or one of the three at-large board members? Contact me rfgold@earthlink.net or any of the current board members for more info. http://www.vgfd.net/leadership

Come to the next board meeting, generally held on Wednesday night in the week prior to the club membership meeting.
