SEPTEMBER HIGHLIGHTS

TOWN COUNCIL ELECTION SET FOR NOVEMBER 6
MCN CANDIDATES NIGHT ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3.
Every even year our Town Council has a certain number of seats that term out. At this
year’s end, the 4-year terms of Teresa Onoda and David Trotter will be completed. Dave
has chosen to re-run for another term, and there are two other candidates who will also
campaign to earn your vote. They are Steve Woehleke and Mike McCluer. Moraga
Citizens Network urges every voter to get to know these men, their strengths, values, and
perspectives on various issues important to our town. Here are some of the ways to do
that:
 Read the Lamorinda Weekly’s Moraga page about each candidate
 In a binder at Town Hall, 329 Rheem Blvd, read each candidate’s nomination
papers
Attend Candidates Night on Wednesday, October 3, 7 – 8:30 p.m. at the Serbian
Cultural Center, 1700 School Street
 Watch the video of this forum via a link on this website after October 7.

 PEAR AND WINE FESTIVAL
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 11 A.M. – 3 P.M.
MORAGA COMMONS PARK


Come to celebrate the 20 th year of this annual festival that helps us connect to Moraga’s   
historic pear industry of the early 1900’s and the current thriving of the wine grape
culture. In keeping with the theme, eat and/or buy pear pies, watch a pie eating contest,
enter a pear recipe contest, and enjoy wine tasting with the Wine Growers Association.

FINALLY!  A CENTRAL SITE FOR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
At the core of Moraga is its spirit of helping out, whether with time or money, or both.  This can be seen in the schools, Scouts, service organizations, the Rheem Theatre, Town Council and town commissions; people are always stepping up and into places to serve.  At last, there is  one place  to find those places to serve, and to announce needs for volunteers to a wide audience.  Moraga Citizens Network has established a “Craig’s List for Volunteers” right here on this website.   Check it out, and come back often!!

Our Mission

Moraga Citizens Network is a grassroots organization dedicated to encouraging participation in the life of Moraga in these ways: First, we provide or direct members to non-partisan, factual information on current issues. Secondly, we assist the town staff in publicizing public meetings and town-sponsored events when needed. Finally, Moraga Citizens Network announces many recreational, educational, and fund raising events offered in Moraga by the Town's service organizations, library, non-profit organizations, and Saint Mary's College - all towards the end of promoting participation in the Moraga community. Our primary tool is a bi-monthly e-bulletin called The MCN Link, which you can receive by signing up here.
