Mountain View Local Group January 2023 Meeting

Wed, January 18 at 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Greetings Comrades,

There are many goings-on in the new year. The Mountain View Local Group will have a virtual meeting on Wednesday, January 18 from 5-6 pm to discuss upcoming events in the city and ways for socialists in Mountain View to get involved.

On January 30, Mountain View city council will appoint a new member to the council to fill the seat vacated by Sally Lieber. At the regular council meeting on January 24 council will finalize questions for candidates. At our meeting we will discuss questions we would like to see included and how to get involved.

The city of Mountain View is also crafting a displacement response strategy and looking for input from residents. There are two stakeholder meetings for tenants: one virtually on Wed January 25 at 4 pm and a second in person on Thurs Jan 26 at 6:30 pm at the Community Center on S. Rengstorff Ave. These are opportunities for socialists to suggest policy recommendations to the city to create housing as a human right rather than profit vehicle by suggesting e.g. creation of community land trusts and Community Opportunity to Purchase (COPA) policies. At our local group meeting we will discuss how to get involved and possible ideas to suggest.

Also occurring January 26 is the first meeting of the year for the Public Safety Advisory Board which will take place in person. We will discuss upcoming agenda items and how to get involved at our local group meeting.

All who live, work, or have some interest in Mountain View are welcome to join. Agenda items can be added during the meeting as well. Join us on zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAvc-GoqTwiG91SZdTjZidHb21fkoXU6Nq9
