The Committee for a GE Free Lake County wants to thank all of the people that helped with the local Label GMO initiative campaign.
We were successful and the initiative is now on the state wide ballot as Proposition 37.
If this initiative passes it will require that genetically engineered ingredients in our food be labeled, providing consumers with the information needed to make a choice to eat or not eat genetically modified foods. Currently this information is not required on the label.
We had more than 30 people gathering signatures, working in all parts of the county and getting over 2,800 signatures. So a big thank you to those 2,830 Lake County folks who helped make it happen.
Also, a big thank you to Grocery Outlet in Lakeport for consistently letting us gather signatures there.
The Committee For a GE Free Lake County in Lake County, Calif., includes Haji Warf, Thurston Williams, Barbara Christwitz, Chole Karl, John Thomas and Roberta Actor-Thomas.
