Davis, CA - On 2/1, Davis residents rallied in support as local government officials, health and child advocates held a press conference to push back against the beverage industry’s heavy-handed efforts to bury a soda tax before voters even have a chance to vote.
Advocates insist that, in the face of overwhelming science connecting sugary drinks to the nation’s rising obesity and diabetes crisis, a soda tax is a smart, proactive step toward protecting the health of children and adults and that voters should have the right to decide themselves.
To move forward with the measure, 4 of the 5 city council members must vote to put the measure on the June ballot. Residents are encouraged to make their voices heard at the February 2nd and 16th council meetings. Click for more information on the proposed measure.
