Dear 10,001 Miamians and Pets’ Trust Supporters,
You know what has happened! We still have much to do and we need your help. From November 6th 2012 until July 9th 2013, Mayor Carlos Gimenez supported COMPLETELY the Pets’ Trust and said…. “he will support the will of the people.” What happened?
On July 10th, 2013, a day that will be remembered as the worst day in the history of our animals in Miami Dade County, the Mayor decided that since a “few people” didn’t know what they were voting for, he would dismantle the dreams and goals of the Pets’ Trust. In that moment, he determined the fate of thousands of animals. WE ALL KNOW WHAT THAT FATE WILL BE!
YOU CANNOT LET THAT HAPPEN. Attached are the phone numbers of all of the Commissioners and the Mayor. Please take the time to call them ALL and let them know how you feel about the Mayor’s decision. Ask for their support. (Make sure you call Commissioner Bovo as he believes this is just a “luxury tax” and Commissioner Sosa who says she will not support any tax increase even though close to 500,000 people voted for it.)
Please be passionate but COURTEOUS. Screaming…. Cursing….does not help our cause and your message gets deleted or thrown out. Our campaign has always been positive. So passionate…..honest….and sincere.
Start calling today, and if you get a phone machine, leave a message. Also call again on Monday and get a real person. MONDAY IS THE LAST DAY TO DO THIS! You can also email starting today.
We are making progress…but we need EVERYONE to call. Again….over and over… Call them all. THIS IS WHAT THE 10,001 MIAMIANS WAS CREATED TO DO!
On Tuesday, July 16th we need EVERYONE to attend a protest in front of Government Center. We will meet in the lobby at 9:00 A.M. Wear red. Basically…a protest for not honoring the almost 500,000 votes and not listening to the community.
Personally, I am shocked that we have to do this….but when the people speak, and the government won’t listen….what else can you do? If they win…the animals have no chance…If we win….Well, sadly…we already won…And now we have to do it again because nearly 500,000 votes was STILL NOT ENOUGH.
PROTEST MARCH on JULY 16th…9:00 A.M. More information to come before then….
CALL EVERYONE and JOIN US ON TUESDAY. See you there!!! We must have a large turnout. You know that!!!!
