Fremont Continued from page 29 change has been long overdue!” With a possible decision to launch the parcel tax due by the Fremont school board’s Oct. 28 meeting, Dorsey is keeping the community updated on her Twitter ac- count: Resi- dents are also going to the chapter website to get involved: Everyone is using their organizing connections, in- cluding Fremont chapter Vice President Sherea Westra, who is also president of the Fremont Education Foundation. Meanwhile, dealing with the impacts of budget cuts prompted the CTA Capital Service Center Council in the Sacramento area to schedule a town hall meeting on Nov. 12. The event will be held 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the gym at Riverbank Elementary, 1100 Carrie St., West Sacramento. Par- ents, administrators, legislators, and com- munity members will be invited to join teachers for a frank discussion about why school cuts will prevent this year from be- ing business as usual. At press time, several chapters in Riv- erside County were planning a town hall session on local school cuts. Leading the effort is the local CTA leaders’ Coalition of Riverside Presidents. The president of the group is Bev Bricker, who is also pres- ident of the Palm Springs Teachers Asso- ciation. She said that, separately, her associa- tion is doing a town hall stressing soar- ing class sizes and other classroom cuts in Palm Springs Unified. Bricker will host the event with Cathedral City May- or Kathy DeRosa starting at 6 p.m. Nov. 4 in the Cathedral City Public Library, 33520 Date Palm Drive, Cathedral City, 92234. “The cuts in this region have been a disaster for teachers, students and com- munities,” Bricker says. “Union work means doing community work. A town hall helps spread the word that it is not business as usual in our public schools — and that we must work together to stop the cuts.” mike myslinski october 2009 | 35 BAD-02-08-10988.CTA 2/7/08 12:00 PM Page 1**nbkjy5z�**Users:nbkjy5z:Desktop: Enjoy the rewards.
