Does something smell funny to you about the arguments against Measure F? The NO on F campaign is being less than truthful.
HERE ARE THE FACTS: 1. MEASURE F WILL SAVE TAXPAYERS MONEY: There are over $7 million in savings by contracting with Veolia. We know this from the District’s July 15, 2009 evaluation of Veolia’s bid. These numbers have been scrutinized by three independent auditing companies. The opposition’s claims have not.
2. MEASURE F WILL PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT: NSD has experienced 111 spills in the last ﬁve years! Veolia was hired to ﬁx this problem. If they don’t, the District can terminate their contract.
3. MEASURE F WILL GUARANTEE NO JOB LOSSES. The 4 NSD employees whose jobs are aﬀected will be guaranteed jobs for 3 years with Veolia—including comparable salary and beneﬁts— and they will be able to remain in the local union. No one will lose his/her job.
Voting Yes on Measure F is good for our pocketbooks, good for our community, and just makes good common sense. We hope that when you put the pros and cons of Measure F to the smell test, you are convinced to vote YES on F, too!

Need help looking and feeling your best? We all have those times when we arenâ€™t as disciplined about our diet and exercise. When I did ZERONA, I hadnâ€™t been taking care of myself, my jeans were too tight and I just didnâ€™t feel great. Well, I did ZERONA and was back in my skinny jeans and little black dress in just 2 weeks. Now I know ZERONA is the answer to anyone wanting to look and feel their best!

In this workshop you gain experience in soul care, and acquire leadership strategies and actions to bring it alive in our self and in others.
