Text:

URGENT MOBILIZATION!

STOP THE POLITICAL VENDETTA AGAINST THE AFL-CIO SUPPORTER ON THE LAW AND LEGISLATION COMMITTEE!

Tuesday, September 15th @ 6 PM
*This should be one of the first items on the agenda*

Sacramento City Council Meeting
City Hall
915 I Street, Sacramento

On Tuesday, September 8th, Mayor Kevin Johnson removed Councilwoman Sandy Sheedy as chair of the City’s Law and Legislation Committee. Sheedy has been an outspoken advocate for workers issues on and off the city council. Councilmember Sheedy raised questions reflecting the concerns of Labor regarding the potential corruption in the strong mayor proposal advocated by the group Sacramentans for Accountable Government.

The city council will meet Tuesday, September 15th, to vote on implementation of the mayor’s recommendation of removing Sheedy. It is critical that allies of working families show council members they must vote against the implementation of this political vendetta!
