Write To Govenor Brown and Other Elected Officals

Govenor Brown strongly supports High-Speed Rail and while many state legislators, primarily Democrats, may have doubts about the project, our elected officials need a clear message from voters that we do not support this $100 billion boondoggle.

This is where YOU can make critical difference - while there is still time!

Legislators on three key committees listed below either make policy decisions on transportation or place controls on the money that will be given to the California High-Speed Rail Authority.

Copy the letter here, modify as needed to reflect your views, then paste in an email with addresses of Govenor Brown and the legislators below. It's easy, takes only a few minutes, and puts political pressure on those who have the most influence.

If you have time, cc your local assembly and senate members.

Please Note: We recommend that you do not use the email forms on legislators' web sites. These forms often limit the length of your text, and dropdown menus can incorrectly categorize your position.

To email Gov. Brown, you will need to use his web site, however: http://govnews.ca.gov/gov39mail/mail.php

Dropdown menu subject: Business, Transportation and Housing Agency
