Dear Fellow Californians:
We are just starting out with a new administration in Sacramento.  Governor 
Brown has his work cut out for him.  In the next few days, weeks and months, 
it will be critical for us, the organized blind, to make our voices be heard 
in Sacramento about various budget cuts.

I believe it is fair to say that all of us benefit from the Library 
Services.  Personally, I have a constant stream of books coming or going 
from my home.

The Governor is proposing to cut library services in California for almost 
the full amount of the program budget.  Or at least a significant amount so 
that services in Nor Cal will feel the pinch.  This hardship will effect 
blind people in California by reducing our ability to achieve literacy.

I will update this list tomorrow with an action plan for the future.  Please 
stayed tuned.

Mary Willows, President
National Federation of the Blind of California
