community gardens are needed as food security for the entire USA

Dear Sacramento elected officials,

Ron Mandella Community Garden may not agree with turning garden plots into
condos but then neither do lots of people.  Some of us actually moved out of
1st class cities that are nothing but monuments to cement and steel.

The economy is going flat and no one will move into your condos, Sacramento
movers and shakers.  All the churning you try with real estate will not stop
the collapse of the economy but if you build relationships with the
taxpayers and voters who are trying to provide food for your tired and poor
perhaps you could avoid the same revolution that the Democrat, President
Roosevelt, did during the Great Depression.  You must have food in your
cities or you will be subject to having your sources of food cut off by

Please work with your Community Gardeners.
