This will be a busy weekend for our elected officials and we are honored that so many will be stopping by our Summer Party: State Treasurer and Gubernatorial Candidate John Chiang, Senate Pro-Tem Kevin de Leon and Senators Ben Allen and Josh (#MaulTheRecall) Newman, Assemblymember Autumn Burke, Supervisor Janice Hahn, Councilmember Mike Bonin, many candidates from around the city and beyond, and the list keeps growing!
Our Program honoring Congressman Ted Lieu will begin at 5:15 pm, folowed by our always-delicious Santa Maria BBQ Dinner: Tri-tip, ribs, chicken, and veggie dishes are provided -
So bring your appetite!
And, if you aren't a member yet, or haven't renewed for 2017, now is the time to do it. WE NEED YOU
. We have big work ahead of us.
To take back the House, we need TWENTY-FOUR seats, and FIVE of those seats are in districts that can be flipped from Red to Blue an hour or so drive from here! We have already started working in District 25 - Steve Knight's district - which includes Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster and the northern part of the San Fernando Valley. We can do this!
We also face another challenge, next door in Fullerton. Freshman Democratic State Senator Josh Newman, SD29, is facing an ugly recall campaign from the Republicans in the OC. If the recall is successful we will lose our 2/3 legislative majority - which is what they are counting on. The West LA Democratic Club has pledged to support Josh in fighting the recall, both financially and with phone-banks and precinct walks. We Need You!
