We are more determined now than ever!
It is our strong belief that CDFA Secretary Ross will let us, the dairymen decide our fate. We are confident we have the support to achieve the 25% threshold and enough votes to win referendum vote. The state never gave us the official list prior to submitting the first petition and is now trying to deter our efforts by giving us limited information as to why our petition was denied. We are pushing back and demanding the state conduct this process with transparency. We will take every step necessary to obtain the producer list, go forward and get the referendum that we need for the future survival of our businesses.
We will not back down from this fight. The government is blocking our right to vote but we will continue to push for the end of QIP for all the dairymen who cannot afford to pay this tax any longer!
Join us today! Feel free to share this with ANY dairyman you know!
