A local student drew this political cartoon depicting the situation at the Tamien site.

City leaders have promised to build a park at this site for more than 20 years, but through deals with Rocketship, the promised park has diminished in size significantly.  Now they are planning to build a miniature soccer field on leftover land after the school is built, if they are able to come up with money to do so.

 Community members would be happy with either a full-sized park, or with a locally controlled secondary school which would meet our community’s needs.  Rocketship is a regional charter with offices in the distant and wealthy city of Palo Alto and draws students from all over Santa Clara County.

Please read our stories and letters below that we’ve sent to the Mayor, almost 100 in number.  Sadly, Mayor Chuck Reed has ignored the voices of the people.  Take Action, now!!  Tell the Mayor to listen to his Latino citizens!!!
