City Council's Port Appointment

From UnionYes:

Join us this Monday as we show our SUPPORT FOR DIANE TAKVORIAN and our OPPOSITION TO BILL EVANS, as the San Diego City Council picks our next Port Commissioner.

What: Port Commissioner Hearing
When: Monday, June 8 at 2 p.m.
Where: City Hall Council Chambers, 202 C Street, 12th Floor, San Diego 92101

Diane helped lead the fight against Proposition B, which would have destroyed the Working Waterfront.

Diane worked with Labor to stand up for environmental protection and sustainable jobs on the Chula Vista Bayfront.

Diane has led the Coalition for Clean and Safe Ports to cut diesel emissions and increase renewable energy on the Port.

Diane is fighting to ensure energy stimulus money is used to generate good LOCAL jobs.

Bill Evans does not share our core beliefs.

Bill Evans does not believe in strong unions that can lift us out of poverty. Bill Evans runs non-union hotels and has even sued the hotel workers union. Bill Evans is a multi-millionaire and the son of a multi-millionaire who does not understand the belief of expanding opportunities for workers, immigrants and underprivileged communities.

Bill Evans is an unacceptable choice to represent San Diegans as a Port Commissioner.

Diane Takvorian is the voice for the community, environment and workers.
