Activating the Community:
A Forum for Milpitas Residents
Join us for a discussion of community participation and civic involvement.
Where: Milpitas Community Room, 1275 North Milpitas Boulevard, Milpitas, CA
(next to Milpitas Police Department at intersection with Minnis Circle)
When: Saturday, February 28, 2015 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Last fall, committees for and against a casino in Milpitas spent $800,000 to get voters to the polls. Yet, only 51% of registered voters in Milpitas actually voted. This is nearly the lowest turnout in Milpitas for a November general election since 2002. Come hear two community leaders talk about their successful campaigns. Then join a panel discussion on how to improve voter turnout.
Featured speakers include newly-elected Milpitas City Council member Marsha Grilli, MUSD Board member Danny Lau, and No on E campaign manager Mike McInerney will talk about their campaign involvement, what happened generally, and why. Then join a panel discussion on how to improve voter turnout.
Panelists include: Leslie Stobbe, Public Information Specialist for the City of Milpitas; Bishop Marty Riker of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; Moina Shaiq, President of Muslim Support Network; Ola Hassan, Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church; and Demetress Morris, Community Educational Activist and founder of Flame Keepers.
Leaders from across the community spectrum are invited: education, business, non-profit, religious, environmental, political, and community/issue activist. Together we will brainstorm ideas, and explore opportunities to cooperate in sparking community involvement.
Speaker District attorney Jeff Rosen
