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
California Debt Limit Allocation Committee
