Ombudsman Michael Kent of the County Hazardous Materials program will talk to us about the many environmental pollution issues in West Contra Costal especially her polltion prevention is a matt of environmental justice and Michael Kent participates in community campaigns against asthma and illegal dumping. At our meeting he will talk to us about these issues and discuss how he can be a resource to the community. Bring your ideas and questions.
