Say NO To Privatization!
I am opposed to selling or leasing the public assets of my community - which includes our public schools, post offices, public parks and beaches, our water supply and road ways - to private companies. I am opposed the Infrastructure Trust which will cause the public to pay private firms for the use of public goods, services and facilities.
If any such privatization or corporatization program is proposed for my community I want it placed on the ballot so we, the citizens, can vote to accept or reject such a scheme via binding referendum.
For more information on privatization, see In The Public Interest and Food and Water Watch. For more information on protecting the Commons, go to OnTheCommons and Protect Our Public Assets. See also
