President’s Message - As the President of JAC, I welcome you to our site! A handful of local visionaries started this organization in 1988 and we’ve enjoyed dynamic leadership for many years.
Our reputation for adapting to the needs of the community we serve is well known. I believe we can provide much positive education and benefit for our community while responsibly objecting to those things we believe are detrimental to our community’s well being.
I believe we can and should support those things that serve to enhance our lives and the lives of those who share this community’s values.
Our efforts should enhance the experiences of all who live, work and recreate in Jamul. I am certain we can find solutions and fund interventions when necessary. My goal is to have us identify the challenges before us and alter what we can long before they become critical issues.
Jamul is a caring and diverse community with many people dedicated to improving our quality of life. There is a great deal of strength and power in unselfishly helping others.
Please get be involved by giving, advocating or volunteering. I hope you’ll be inspired to make a donation of time, money or both to support the important efforts underway.
Together, we can accomplish more than any one of us could alone. Please support our efforts!
By now many of you have heard that California’s Department of Alcohol Beverage Control has granted a permanent license for JIV to serve alcohol. This is not unexpected and is clearly an insult to the community and those who worked hard to oppose it.
The stated mission of the ABC is:
“To provide the highest level of service and public safety to the people of the State through licensing, education, and enforcement.”
This decision certainly does NOT accomplish that mission. The ABC did include some restrictions on the license, yet they fall short of what we had asked. Please urge your family and friends to not place themselves at risk to patronize this facility.
Your JAC Board is grateful for your continued support. The Board will meet next week to discuss further options regarding this license. Meanwhile we wait to hear from the Federal Court on our pending lawsuit. Please stay tuned for further updates!
