At the June 25, 2007, joint meeting of the San Leandro City Council and the San Leandro School Board, Mayor Tony Santos announced that July 10, 2007, would be proclaimed "Dump the Pump" day in San Leandro. The proclamation will be issued at the July 2, 2007, meeting of the City Council.
The goal of "Dump the Pump" day is to get people to ride public transportation instead of driving their cars. The event raises awareness that using public transportation can improve the environment, conserve fuel, and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
If this seems like dated news, it may be because Dump the Pump day for most other areas was Thursday, June 21, 2007.Posted by Mike Katz-Lacabe at June 30, 2007 11:36 PM | TrackBack
