Evelyn Schoenfeld's last two letters:

August 18, 2002

To: Senator Bruce McPherson
re: AB 1421

Dear Senator McPherson,

I am alarmed and deeply dismayed by the proposal to enact legislation =
which would classify some patients as not having the ability to decide =
for themselves what medications they should use for what may appear to =
be a "mental condition."

This strikes me as being very coersive when there is absolutely no =
evidence that this policy would work any better than voluntary =
treatment.  In addition, the cost will be prohibitive at a time when =
people are losing their jobs and the state coffers are empty.

I am also aware that the pharmaceutical companies have had undue =
influence in pushing this legislation from which they will make =
tremendous profits.

I expect, as my representative that you will vote "NO" on AB 1421.

I am enclosing a self-addressed stamped envelope in which I ask that you =
inform me how you voted.


Thank-you very much for your prompt attention to this matter.

Respectfully yours,

Ms.Evelyn J.Schoenfeld
1721 Foster Ct.
Santa Cruz, Ca. 95062

to: Mayor Christopher Krohn
re: Downtown Ordinances


August 18, 2002


Dear Mayor Krohn,

I am writing to commend you on your courage in voting against the =
downtown ordinances.

It goes against the character of Santa Cruz to ban bubble-blowers, =
street musicians, political tables, jugglers, frisbees, hacky-sackers, =
clowns, magicians, and homeless people holding signs.

The real problems we are facing are vandalism, drug-dealing, =
shop-lifting, the sexual harassment, and not enough bathrooms downtown.  =
When the downtown ordinances come up on your September 10th agenda, I =
urge you to again speak out that these ordinances were passed in haste, =
do nothing to address the real problems, and are ultimately destructive =
to homeless people.

I would ask that you call for the suspension of the enforcement of these =
ordinances given the many concerns of civil rights organizations.

The character and the quality of Santa Cruz has been diminished by these =
ordinances.

LET SANTA CRUZ BE SANTA CRUZ!

Thanks again for voting for what is right and not bending to political =
expediancey.


-- Respectfully yours,

Ms. Evelyn J. Schoenfeld

Let Santa Cruz Be Santa Cruz!
