CVU, Ashford and Strasser educate on Proposition 47 at Auburn Home Show

Harriet Salarno of Crime Victims United and several employees at Ashford and Strasser law firm volunteered to man a booth at the Auburn Home Show during the weekend of Sept. 27.

The event took place at the Gold Country Fairgrounds and included local vendors from all over Placer County.

Harriet said her mission at the CVU/Ashford and Strasser booth was to promote awareness of the pitfalls of Proposition 47, which will be on the ballot this November. She felt her advocating a "no vote" to event attendees went well.

"I was surprised at how many people did not know about proposition 47," she said. "I was able to reach out to several people who I believe will now vote no. This type of grass roots advocacy is what we will have to utilize in order to spread the word that proposition 47 is very flawed and very dangerous. We don't have the money that the yes side has, but we do have word of mouth."
