I am not sure if this is the best person to contact, but someone I met
recently who might possibly be helpful in this regard is FIONA MA, Majority
Whip and Assembly Woman for the 12th District, out of San Francisco.
You can contact her directly at:
assemblymember.ma at assembly.ca.gov
If you think this is a good person to contact (as I do).
Please let me know your thoughts on this issue and/or if you know additional
contacts who may be helpful in regarding this important Berkeley issue.
