Your core team is all over the map… literally. We could use some help/support in the following efforts:
1. VOTER REGISTRATION This is a mid term election so enthusiasm is not running high. However, for our area there are Board of Supervisor races and Measure M. The outcomes will have a direct impact on our lifestyles so get informed and help get out the vote. We need help registering voters. This is an easy gig and we can place you with an experienced person if you have never registered voters. We will supply materials.
Thurs. Aug. 28 from 10-2 at our local Folsom Lake College campus during their orientation.
Tues. Sept. 23 is National Registration Day. We will be partnering with the League of Women Voters at the Placerville and EDHills Libraries from 12-4. (Cameron Park Library will be closed for refurbishing).
Farmer’s Markets-We hope to be at a few different ones mid Sept. thru mid Oct.
Please let us know if you can help!
2. FILM SERIES We are launching the second year of the film series co-sponsored with the Sierra Club. We are kicking off with “Inequality for All” Sept. 10, followed by “End of the Line” Oct. 8, and “A Place at the Table” Nov. 12. Check your Progressive Alliance Calendars for descriptions of each film. Post the flyers if you can and show up for the films.
3. ART MOORE is a Republican running against Tom McClintock. He was our guest at the July C4C meeting and is personable, young and energetic. On social issues such as gay rights and women’s right he is not as conservative as his website professes. We agreed that he would be a much better representative for District 4 than McClintock. He will need widespread progressive/Dem support if he hopes to unseat McClintock. C4C is non-partisan so we had in mind setting up a “meet and greet” for Art and inviting everyone from the progressive community to attend. What do you think about that idea? Would you and/or your group be willing to attend? Co-sponsor? The reality is… we will only have Republican choices in many upcoming elections so we might as well get onboard with voting for the best Republican for us.
4. MEASURE M has qualified for the Nov. ballot. Below is the website and contact info for this group. Even if, like me, you do not have a huge housing development planned for your immediate area, these projects would add thousands of cars to our roadways. I don’t think any of us wants to be held hostage by gridlock.traffic. Please contribute whatever you can for the signage needed to get the word out. A 4 X 8 sign runs about $50. I plan to contribute $25. this month and $25. next month.
If you can help in any other way, ask to be on their email list and they will keep you posted on what is needed. We are confident that this measure will pass as long as voters have a clear understanding of the initiative. This is super IMPORTANT!
