Taxpayers promote Constitution - press release

At Thursdays meeting of the Calaveras County Planning Commission, the Calaveras County Taxpayers Association presented copies of  The US constitution and Fascinating Facts About It  booklets to the Commissioners and Planning Director. 

The Calaveras County Taxpayers Association (CCTA) is heading an outreach effort to provide special copies of the US Constitution to public officials in Calaveras County. In addition, the group hopes to reach teachers, students and service clubs

The groups President, Al Segalla, said the first batch of  The US constitution and Fascinating Facts About It  booklets were also presented to county Supervisors at it's board meeting on Tuesday, February 25. 

Bob Mulvany, Project Chair for the group and former Planning Commissioner, said "These booklets are unique and have had over two million copies distributed.  The booklet contains so much more than the founding document, such as Fascinating Facts About the Founding Fathers, The Declaration Of Independence, The Articles of Confederation, The Supreme Court and 20 Landmark Cases In Supreme Court History to name just a few."

The U.S. Constitution is one of the most influential legal documents in existence. Since its creation, some two hundred years ago, over one hundred countries around the world have used it as a model for their own.

CCTA is seeking donations and help for more booklets and prizes for future winners of Quizzes and games featured on the companion website, ConstitutionFacts.comThe website contains a huge amount of interesting information including a Fun Zone for kids.
