ACTION ALERT:  3 Ways You Can Tell Governor-Elect Newsom #NoTunnels

This past week was a doozy. While we received great news from the Delta Stewardship Council, Governor Brown is still relentlessly trying to push through his boondoggle legacy project. Speculation of potential backroom deals for the tunnels has popped up in news reporting and cryptic tweets. This is the real legacy that Brown is leaving behind, and we will make sure it is written into history.

Before Governor-Elect Newsom takes office, he is already at a crossroads. Will he continue in the shadow of Governor Brown, and carry out Brown’s tunnel vision? Or will he pave a path towards innovating and implementing sustainable water projects in communities across the state?

Right now there are 3 steps you can take to help us point Governor Newsom in the right direction before he begins his first term as Governor. Here’s how you can get involved:

1. Sign our petition, Steps for Governor-Elect Newsom to Modernize CA WaterLink to our petition: https://bit.ly/2qz3b5v 

After you sign your name, please share on Facebook, Twitter, or via email with friends and family who care about the Bay-Delta. The more signatures, the better chance we have of showing Governor-Elect Newsom that the majority of Californians are against the tunnels project. 

2. Tweet #NoTunnels to Newsom using the hashtag #Advice4Gavin 

If you have a Twitter profile, compose a concise, polite tweet that expresses your opposition to the project and states that sustainable projects that are NOT the tunnels should be one of Newsom’s top priorities during his term.

Make sure you include the hashtag #Advice4Gavin. These tweets will be discussed by Sacramento Bee reporters and political leaders next Thursday (11/15) on California Nation.

3. Submit your comments to Governor-Elect Newsom and staff via All in California

Link to All in California: https://gavinnewsom.com/get_involved

This action item is pretty self-explanatory. Simply click the link and follow the instructions to submit your comment explaining why Newsom should ditch the tunnels project and create a sustainable, innovative future for California water.

We have 56 days until Newsom takes office. Let’s encourage him to exercise political courage and do the right thing.

    Please do not support the delta tunnels in any version, single or double, unless all environmental impacts are considered and mitigated. There are other ways to solve the water crisis in california such as off stream storage, or desalinization. Please protect California’s most precious resource the beautiful california delta.

    Please stop the tunnels. I voted for you and the environment. The tunnels do not solve the water problem.

    Please do not support the delta tunnels. There are other ways to help Californias water crisis.
    Shipping water by diverting it to southern california will destroy our delta and all the
    fish and people depending on its water. There must be another solution.

    It sounds like Governor Brown should also be contacted,
    as from the reports, he is the one trying to push this through
    before he leaves office.

    This is a waste of everyone’s time because Mr. Newsome just like Mr. Brown does what he wants to do without regard for anyone else other than their own agendas and pockets. We were planning to retire here but nope we are gone. There is no hope for this GODLESS state. Newsome is so arrogant he could even put a statement in the voter guide nor did he bother to campaign with ads of any kind- the nerve! of not even thinking he had to try and EARN his votes that makes him look small and California voters just look ignorant- which the majority are because they know nothing of how these 2 creatures have had a negative effect on decent peoples lives.

    Dear Governor Elect Gavin Newsom, Please do not push for or support the Delta Tunnels project. Why not use the existing Delta Mendota Canal or use Desalinazation. There are other ways to get water to the Southern end of our state. Don’t destroy one part of the state to give to another. The Delta is a vital part of life for many, human and animal alike, plus the many plants that call the Delta home.
