Attend the February 12th public hearing and vote.
Dixie Board of Trustees will decide whether or not to change the district’s name on Tuesday February 12th. This is your only chance to give up to two minutes of public testimony. Public testimony given before January 16th will not be considered when the board makes its decision. Tell the board to change the name. Advocate for which new name you like best.
If you can not attend a meeting, email the Trustees in support of the name change. It would be helpful if you could send us a copy of your letter at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also mail your letter to the Trustees at 380 Nova Albion Way, San Rafael, CA 94903.
