Dear [Decision Maker],

Smoking remains the leading cause of preventable death in California. The United States Surgeon General issued a landmark report concluding that there is "no safe level" of exposure to secondhand smoke. Even brief exposure to secondhand smoke can cause immediate harm.

While California state law only restricts smoking within 25 feet of tot lots and playgrounds, municipalities are authorized pass stronger laws to prohibit smoking within any recreation area and protect their citizens from exposure to secondhand smoke.

As a resident of Santee, I urge you to pass a 100% smokefree parks ordinance, that does not include an exemption for a designated smoking area during certain city-sponsored events.
