As most of you know, we have a crucial special election for State Senate approaching on June 22. Voters in Senate district will choose their next state senator – either John Laird, a Democrat and former community college trustee, or Sam Blakeslee, a Republican who orchestrated the gutting of higher education as Assembly Minority Leader. This is an election Democrats should win, as President Obama won this district by 20 points. If we win, we’d be only one seat away from two-thirds in the State Senate.
In an effort to elect Democrat John Laird on election day, it is vital that Cal Dems actively campaigns. One way members can do this is by phone banking in the coming weeks. You can contact Molly at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the login information and instructions.
Please consider making a few phone calls. Thanks and happy summer!
