OPPOSITION to Governor’s Child Care and Development Proposals

My name is [Insert Name], from [Insert location] and I am the parent to [number] children, aged [put
the ages]. I am writing to you today to respectfully urge you to oppose the Governor’s child care and
development proposals.

California will not get out of this recession if families like mine cannot work and maintain stable
employment. [Provide a sentence or two about your current employment situation- name of employer
or industry, how many years, etc.]

I earn ___ per month. My housing cost are ____. I have _____ left over for food, clothing, incidentals,
and transportation.

Further not all working poor families are on welfare. Our children, just like any other child, should have
the access and opportunity to be cared for and educated by quality providers in centers, family child
care homes, and in environments that support our families’ needs. These providers need to be
adequately paid not only for the care of my child but also for the healthy and nutritious meals served to
my child while in care.

It is my intent to continue to work and to provide for my children. In order to do that, it is important
that I have child care.

Thank you.
