Hermosa Beach Drilling on the Ballot

It’s official. On March 3rd, Hermosa residents will be able to vote on oil drilling in Hermosa Beach. The vote had been postponed until a mid year ballot. Some people think E&B purposely got the vote delayed because fewer people come out to vote in the mid year elections. So get out there and vote to stop drilling! I would hate to see Hermosa be over taken by the oil drilling. It threatens the integrity of this small beach town, and puts the town at unnecessary risk of oil spills, accidents, pollution, traffic congestion.

This Saturday, November 22nd, you can join in the efforts to get the word out. Canvas the Neighborhood is from 9 am – 1 pm. Meet at South Park at 425 Valley Park in Hermosa Beach.
