Amy Anderson recently received this letter of support from one of her City Council representatives in the city of Richmond, California. The text is below:
Dear Amy Anderson,
Other members of the Richmond City Council and I, Councilman Nathaniel Bates are much aware of your efforts to enact a city based legislation regulating local authority and innovative space-based technology of which directly falls under federal and international jurisdiction. The Space Preservation Act of 2001 reaffirmed US policy that activities in space should be devoted to peaceful purposes.
As you also are aware, the City of Richmond has done what it can to acknowledge and support individuals who claim to be Targeted Individuals (TI) by adopting Resolution 51-15 in support of targeted individuals who claim to be under assault from space based weaponry and rreferenced the Space Preservation Act (SPA). The SPA was introduced to the 107th Congress, HR 1977 to preserve the cooperative, peaceful uses of space for the benefit of all humankind by permanently prohibiting the basing of weapons in space by the United States, and to require the President to take action to adopt and implement a world treaty banning space-based weapons. The resolution demonstrates the City's support of these proposed actions and more importantly, support for those individuals who identify themselves as targets of space-based weapons.
Per your request, this letter is of my support on your efforts of seeking further legislative direction by contacting Mark DeSaulnier's Office. I wish you the best on taking further steps and commend you for being a strong advocate for the TI community.
Nathaniel Bates, Councilman and former Mayor of Richmond, CA
