Newsletter 06.12.18



Can you believe it? The campaigning has ended (to begin again), the signs are down, the media has left for a few days, and we have FOUR, yes FOUR, DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES....one in each of our OC swing districts! Gil Cisneros is our candidate for CD 39, Katie Porter for CD 45, Mike Levin for CD 49 and either Hans Keirstead or Harley Rouda for CD 48. Until late last Tuesday night it really seemed impossible.

Now the work comes...we need to activate again, coalesce around our candidates, raise money and get our four candidates into office. Let's get together and talk about that...


WE ARE SO EXCITED TO WELCOME
