Pasadena Councilmember Steve Madison requests his district to consider signing the NO710 Petition.

From Pasadena Councilperson Steve Madison via email, December 5, 2013

As you know, I am strongly opposed to the proposal to build a tunnel through West Pasadena to extend the Long Beach Freeway.  I’ve asked the Mayor and the City Manager to agendize for the City Council meeting my proposed resolution to oppose the 710 tunnel.  I have proposed this resolution but it has failed to carry (with my colleagues Torneck, McAustin and Robinson regrettably voting to support the tunnel by voting “no” on my resolution).

We will keep you posted regarding the Council’s position on this important issue.

Meanwhile, I am sending you a link to a No 710 Petition for your consideration.

1. Go to www.no710.com .
2. Click on the words
"Sign the Petition" that appear in the yellow oval. This will take you to
a page that shows all the officials who will be contacted each time the
petition is signed.
3. Click on the words "Sign the Petition" in the
yellow box on this page and you will taken to the petition at Change.org.

4. Fill in the information at the right to sign the petition, and if you
wish, leave your comments on why this is important to you.
5. Finally,
click on the red box that says "Sign". *
