Support Madera Casino!

It's as easy as 1,2,3...

Update, Winter 2012
Greetings "FANS" (Friends and Neighbors in Support) of the North Fork Rancheria resort project!

Have You Received This Mailer?

Recently, opponents of the North Fork Rancheria's resort project have been sending out negative attack flyers, including this recent mailer. However, we can take advantage of this. We again ask for the help of our community friends and neighbors to overcome these last-minute obstacles and allow us to finish the political process that has been underway for years.

Let's use the mailer to send a word to Governor Jerry Brown - that you SUPPORT GOOD JOBS for Madera County, and that our community desperately needs the economic benefits that would accompany our project.
Just take the mailer and follow these simple steps:

STEP 1: Change the Address and cross out the Permit Number and Postage Paid wording
Remember, this particular postage permit and P.O. box will go to our opponents, but we want to make sure that our message goes straight to Governor Brown instead!
Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

STEP 2: Put a stamp on it
If you like, feel free to put the mailer in a mailing envelope instead.

STEP 3: Turn the mailer over
Replace "Oppose" with "Support," and replace "Reject" with "Approve."

STEP 4: Put it in the mail!
Holiday Greetings to all! As we end the year, we give thanks to all of our friends and neighbors for their unflagging support, and send you best wishes for the new year. May 2012 bring the fulfillment of all of our dreams and wishes.
