Dirty oil in “America’s salad bowl”? We’ll hear speakers on the Monterey County campaign that needs your help for the election in November, and the successful campaign in Alameda County last July.
Support Measure Z in Monterey County
Measure Z, a citizens’ initiative to ban fracking and other extreme oil recovery methods, is on the November ballot in Monterey County, the fourth largest oil-producing county in the state of California and “America’s salad bowl.”
Big Oil has already started running TV and radio ads opposing Measure Z and is expected to spend more than $10 million by election day in November. The campaign needs our help: canvassing to get out the vote, phonebanking — anything we can do.
Can California Go Frack-Free?
One county, Kern, produces the vast majority of California oil. Butte, Mendocino, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties have all banned fracking and dangerous oil operations. Activists in Alameda County recently succeeded in banning fracking there — a leader of that campaign, Rebecca Franke, will tell us how.
So far, the oil sector of Monterey County’s economy is small; A ban in Monterey County is feasible and can stop fracking early on. The more counties sign on to a ban, the more momentum builds to stop fracking throughout the state – and offshore.
