John Hernandez enters Congressional race with events in Sanger and Bakersfield

An announcement directly from our friends at the John Hernandez for Congress campaign:




The Hernandez for Congress exploratory committees of the counties of Fresno, Kern and Kings are proud to announce that after a summer of activity they are ready to enter the race for the 21st Congressional district.

“On Saturday October 12, 2013 at 11am at the Sanger park and in Bakersfield at 4pm, at 931 Niles, I will officially enter the race for the 21st Congressional district. We have a congressman that is hurting our country by shutting down our government. It is now time to shut down David Valadao! Each day that goes by our local small businesses lose almost a billion dollars in SBA loans, our national parks are shutdown, punishing our travel and tourism industry and hurting small business, Lemoore Naval Air Station cannot pay its vendors and thousands of workers cannot work. I am the 2012 democratic nominee and I plan on staying. It is time get the government running and put JOBS FIRST in the 21st district!”

Evans: Valadeo won’t move to end shutdown without pressure from his district

A message from Fresno County Democratic Chair Michael D. Evans:

Thanks to the Republican shutdown, 9,000,000 moms and kids are going to lose WIC, which keeps food on their tables, Yosemite was closed on its 123rd birthday, and the National Institutes of Health have put their cancer research on pause.

Our representative in Congress, Rep. David Valadao, has the power to stop it. He can pressure Republican leadership in the House to bring a clean government funding bill to a vote, and he can support it.

But right now, Rep. Valadao is in thrall to Speaker Boehner and the tea party. He won’t end the shutdown without pressure from back home — from us.

Sign California Democrats’ petition to Rep. Valadao now — demand that he end the shutdown.

The shutdown is just one more reason our local representative is a top target for the state party in the next election.

Democrats throughout California are rallying to defeat him, but it’s up to the people who live in his district — like you and me — to call out his worst positions.

And we need to start now, today, while people are starting to hurt from this reckless, irresponsible shutdown.

Sign California Democrats’ petition to Rep. Valadao now — call him out until he votes to end the shutdown.

Thank you for being a California Democrat,

Michael Evans
Fresno County Democrats
