Meeting Reminder – June 18

Reminder: Meeting June 18

The CUPON-SV meeting is Tuesday, June 18, at 7:00 PM at the First Baptist Church.

Our agenda will be to review and discuss the intense media scrutiny of our village and our issues.

Update: we will also discuss the new level of attention our issue is getting from people seeking elected office. At the NAACP debate Monday night, it was all anyone could talk about!

We will also review the issues raised at the Rent Guidelines Board. It was a well attended meeting, and people were not shy about speaking their minds!

See you Tuesday (tomorrow or tonight, depending when you are reading this message)!

Media Review:
Our issue has been in the news a lot lately! There have been several excellent articles and broadcasts covering the issues with overcrowded dilapidated housing and schools, and the rush of poorly planned new construction.

Also Senator Skoufis has begun investigations into these issues in our area. We hope they will lead to real consequences for those who exploit our community, and better quality of life for our neighborhoods!

Here is just a sample of the major media coverage of our issues:
