Hey folks,
Please distribute this to any list you have access to or people you think 
might be interested. If we are successful at this I think it will stop CADA 
and the developers dead in their tracks.

On July 9th CADA picked portland developer HGW will go before the California

Debt Limit Allocation Committee (CDLAC) to request tax-exempt bonds for the 
Fremont Mews project. The current design of the Fremont Mews project calls 
for the destruction of the Ron Mandella Community Garden and should not be 
sudsidized. A wealthy out of state developer, who has not paid taxes in 
California, will be building Fremont Mews. No more state subsidies should go

to companies that haven't payed into the system. If the tax-exempt bonds are

awarded to the Fremont Mews project the developers will exploit a loophole 
in the law so they don't have to pay construction workers the prevailing 
wage.  Don't let CADA and the developers destroy the Mandella Garden, rip 
off workers and rip off taxpayers. If the developers are prevented from 
getting this bond financing it is highly unlikely that they will be able to 
finance their project and destroy the garden.

We need as many people as possible to come out to the CDLAC hearing and 
voice their opposition to tax-exempt bonds being awarded to the Fremont Mews

project. The hearing is Wednesday July 9th at 1:00 pm in the auditorium of 
the Secretary of State building at 1500 11th Street.


Write CDLAC and let them know you oppose tax-exempt bonds being awarded to 
Fremont Mews.
