Don't wait until November to vote. Do it NOW!!  The Santa Cruz Sentinel is
currrently conducting a straw poll on the Safe Sleeping Zones online and you
can vote once per day.  Its been up for about 2 weeks and the last we
checked (Sunday 10 am) it was 1032 votes to date -- 66% against 33% for.  We
are looking for 333 individuals to even the score.  Please log onto
http://www.santacruzsentinel.com and look for the poll in the lower left-hand
corner of the opening screen.  Of course, not very many homeless people have
computers and online accounts.  So we are looking for those who feel
homeless people should be allowed to sleep somewhere outside, rather than
ticketed, arrested, or run out of town.   Don't let Texas Instruments and
all the bigots outdo us!!
