A message from Strategic Alliance Steering Committee Member California Center for Public Health Advocacy:
This evening, July 24, the City of El Monte city council will have the opportunity to consider a landmark policy that will take a stand for public health and wellness of El Monte residents. We need your help: please join us in showing support as the city moves to consider a general business license fee on sugar-sweetened beverages.
Take action now. There are two ways you can lend your support. We hope you will join this effort:
- For those in the Los Angeles area, the city council will meet TONIGHT July 24 at 5:30pm at the El Monte City Hall East: 11333 Valley Blvd., El Monte, CA 91731. Please join us if you can!
- If you are not able to attend, you can send a letter of support directly to Andre Quintero, Mayor of El Monte.
