Meet the Woman Who Can Flip CA 04 from Red to Blue!

Hello Fellow Activists:

Two of the rare bright spots in the past year have been the intensity of local activism and the emergence of motivated progressive candidates. My friends Mike and Cathy Aydelott would like to introduce you to one of these candidates, Jessica Morse (https://www.morse4congress.com/meetjess). Jess is running for CA 04, the Congressional seat long held by Tom McClintock in a sprawling district that includes Yosemite and much of the Gold Country. We think it’s essential to get to know our progressive candidates as we move into the primary and general elections. After the successes we saw in VA earlier this month, we know that Democrats can win in traditionally red areas when we organize, mobilize and remain united.

I hope you will join us to meet Jess and learn about her qualifications and candidacy on Tuesday evening, November 28th, from 7:00-8:00pm at the Aydelott’s home at 67 Pine Ave. in San Carlos. While there is no donation required to attend this event, contributions will be appreciated after the program…donor’s choice. Attached is the event invitation and an LA Times article about Jess.

Please RSVP to Mike at maydelott@aol.com and feel free to spread the word!

It’s time to start drafting a winning game plan for 2018.

We can do it,

April

Sweeping Changes Coming To San Mateo County Elections

San Mateo County is one of 14 counties invited to take part in the 2018 pilot program for a new election system that will be available to all of California in 2020.

The scrapping of precinct polling places in favor of large voting centers and ballot drop boxes, mail-in ballots sent to every voter, and offering same-day registration are some of the changes in the works.

How secure will the new system be? What difficulties will it present for the disabled and for non-English speakers?

Susie Raye will explain it all for us and give us information about the upcoming public hearings where we can participate in the planning of the system, making our voices heard.

And SMC DFA’s busy task forces will update us on their latest meetings and activities.

When: Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 7:00 pm

Where:  Woodside Road United Methodist Church, 2000 Woodside Road, Redwood City, CA 94061

In-Depth Interview of Sister District Founder, Rita Bosworth by Former Assemblyman Ted Lempert at Half Moon Bay Brewing Co.

There is a clear way forward: For Democrats to take back control of the House of Representative, and ensure better state-level support for all citizens, Democrats must take back control of state legislatures.

When: Thursday, August 31, 2017, 7:00pm-9:00pm

Where: Half Moon Bay Brewing Co. 390 Capistrano Rd., Half Moon Bay, CA.

Special Guests: Former Assemblyman Ted Lempert and Rita Bosworth, Founder of Sister District Project

Join us as former California Assemblyman Ted Lempert interviews Rita Bosworth, the founder and visionary of Sister District Project, and learn about a nationwide effort to harness the energy and expertise of volunteers in deeply blue (or red) places and create a network of local teams to support winnable state legislative races across the United States that are strategically important for Democrats. The purpose of Sister District Project is to ensure that all Americans have equal representation and our government works for all people, not just the minority in power.

This event is a fundraiser for Kathy Tran, one of 14 candidates that Sister District is supporting for state legislature races this year. Kathy is running for the the VA42 seat of the Virginia House of Delegates in November 2017.

A $50 per person donation is requested (any and all donations are appreciated).
