Call For Action-Citizens of Alachua

Call For Action-Citizens of Alachua

Michael Canney


The unprecedented disqualification of all three non-incumbent candidates for Alachua city commission, and the arbitrary cancellation of our scheduled election on April 10 are cause for deep concern for many. I hope members of the community will address these concerns at the next meeting of the Alachua City Commission on Monday, March 5th at the Alachua Elementary School. Also, please feel free to print out and copy the attached Petition, and help get Alachua citizens` signatures on them (registered voters only).
