We have one last chance to fight for our community and demonstrate the massive community opposition to this project. As we know, Wal-Mart Super Centers increase traffic, congestion and crime, decrease wages, lower or eliminate health care benefits and undermine local area businesses, often resulting in the closing of small, family-owned businesses.
Already, hundreds of communities all across this country have stood up for an America that reflects our values - fair pay, decent health care, strong local communities, gender and racial equality and basic community standards - and won against Wal-Mart. Please make sure your voice is heard.
What: City Council Meeting
When: Tuesday, February 21 at 7pm

Wal-Mart's corporate lobbyists and special interest money is no match for our grassroots community campaign here in Cornelius, throughout Oregon and all across this country. Thank you for your support.
