Members from courts in four counties met Wednesday, Jan. 11, to start a campaign to take back our courts.
The first order of business is passing AB 1208, which would guarantee money meant for local courts actually makes it to local courts, instead of the out-of-control administrative office that has been siphoning money.
We’ll start by lobbying our legislators with a trip to Sacramento on Jan. 24 and local visits to our legislators’ offices.
“Today’s meeting and communication/organization tools like it are simply mission critical components of any successful campaign to change our current financial management crisis. Not participating at some degree is intellectual anorexia. It’s ultimately fatal if not reversed. Get to meetings and get informed. Balance your diet with a nutritional lobby day in Sacramento, or call your legislator’s office and let them know you’re watching and you vote.” —Bill Ragland, Monterey County Courts
