The Milpitas Coalition for a Better Community met with around 50 community members to discuss the proposed Wal-Mart expansion on Ranch Drive on Saturday at the Sunnyhills United Methodist Church. Speakers included:
Cathy Deppe, 9 to 5
Bill Ferguson, Sunnyhills Neighborhood Association
Chonsoo Lee, Sunnyhills United Methodist Church
Ron Lind, UFCW Local 5 and long-time Milpitas resident
Jerry Lee Ruggiero, Milpitas Nob Hill Food worker
Sahuhi Saddique, Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosque
Discussion centered on the reasons we’re against the expansion including: worries about job loss, neighborhood blight, and the proposed sale of alcohol at the site.
