Our engagement in 2016 has created momentum for a 2017 where the people of Castro Valley will have a greater voice in the fate of our community.
- CVM’s promotion of the Elected MAC Town Hall resulted in attendance by over 200 people who overwhelming supported an elected MAC.
- We partnered with the Chamber of Commerce for a Board of Supervisors candidate town hall, and we volunteered at the Chamber’s weekly food truck events.
- We continued our efforts to inform the public about local elections with candidate statements for races normally not covered by local media.
- We helped Castro Valley make sense of California’s 17 ballot propositions and were featured in a CALmatters article about our efforts.
- Our advocacy with Castro Valley Matters member Linda Willis has set the groundwork for a community identifier at the Interstate 580 overpass at Redwood Road.
2017 promises to be a year where civic engagement and action are important to building a vibrant Castro Valley community.
- We will have an opportunity to refine our proposal for an elected Castro Valley MAC and work with other our unincorporated communities across California for democratic local control.
- We have a renewed opportunity to revisit what will become of the heart of Castro Valley at the Daughtrey’s building site.
Whether it’s at a community meeting, at food trucks, or a brief exchange of emails, we build our power to control the destiny of Castro Valley by connecting. Castro Valley Matters connects our community for change.
Let’s build a vision for Castro Valley together in 2017.
