so it begins: Saturday March 28, 2009: The California Department of Food and Agriculture with the California Highway Patrol forced their way onto the properties of elder members of our community and forcibly sprayed their residences with the pesticide Dipel .. Patty Pagaling and I spoke with two women, both traumatized by the apparent lack of regard for their property and their privacy. It is very important that we help to make these community members feel safe. Please let people know of this weekend’s events, and tell your legislators that the CDFA has no right to treat our elder citizens in this fashion. Thank you. – Chris Jones
