Wells Fargo


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

Wells Fargo needs to change. Now.

A year ago, they tried to tell the world that they had addressed the scandals that made national headlines. But even in the last few months, new revelations have come to light about veterans and auto-loan borrowers being overcharged.

And now Congress has made it harder for consumers to sue banks like Wells Fargo when they commit fraud, making even more important that our elected leaders here in California hold them accountable.

That’s why I’m extending California’s financial sanctions against Wells Fargo for another year — to pressure them to change their corporate culture of greed. But I need your help to ratchet up that pressure.

Will you join me in calling on federal regulators to begin a full, transparent investigation and for Wells Fargo to fire its leaders who let this scandal grow?

As early as 2013, the Los Angeles Times reported on a problematic sales culture and quotas that lead Wells Fargo employees to sign millions of customers up for bank accounts they didn’t want or need. Only last year, when they were fined $185 million by federal regulators, including the embattled Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, did they start to make real headway toward addressing the problem.

But the opaque manner with which Wells Fargo continues to do business and the frequency of new disclosures of wanton greed and lack of institutional control made the decision to continue sanctions so clear that there really was no choice at all — especially as Washington politicians work to roll back federal consumer protections.

I will not stand by and let them abuse more Californians with their predatory tactics.

Wells Fargo can and must do better, and it’s up to us to make them. If Washington won’t continue to hold them accountable, it’s up to California to choose a different road.

Join me in demanding action now. Add your name.

Thanks for standing with me,

John

Your Lieutenant Governor


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

I’m running for Lieutenant Governor because I’m dedicated to maintaining California as a beacon of hope and progress during a time when the Trump administration seems dead-set on turning back the clock on Americans.

Can you pitch in today to help us win this campaign? Make a contribution now.

Now, you might be wondering: what can a Lieutenant Governor do to stand up to Trump and protect our progress? Well, here are just a few examples:

Our Lieutenant Governor plays a key role in:

  • Fighting back against Trump when he attacks our California values and our local communities
  • Championing job creation efforts to expand our middle class economy, while standing in solidarity with working people
  • Protecting our state’s environment and natural resources
  • Ensuring affordable and accessible higher education for everyone
  • Serving as a bold, forceful voice for healthcare for all

If we’ve learned anything from Washington this year, it’s that you want the right person breaking the tie on important votes.

That’s why California families need to know their next Lieutenant Governor will be someone who’s always in their corner — and I will be that person.

Will you help me get there by making a contribution of $5, $10, $25, or more today?

Together, we’re going to make sure California keeps setting the standard for equality and progress in this country.

Thanks for everything you do,

Dr. Ed

Dr. Ed is running to be the next Lt. Governor of California to build on the progress he’s made in the California Assembly and Senate, bring people together, and get things done. California has a real opportunity to send Washington a message: we’re going to put in the work to remain a beacon of hope and progress, with fairness, equality, and economic justice.

Completely vaporized…


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

I had the opportunity to tour parts of the devastation caused by the Northern California wildfires, and I want to thank Sonoma Supervisor James Gore for bringing me to see the stunning aftermath firsthand.

It was shocking to see entire neighborhoods – like Coffey Park – almost completely vaporized. 8,400 homes and buildings have been destroyed. Hundreds of families lost everything, yet the community has banded together to help those most in need. It was also very inspiring to hear about the response of local, state and federal government officials, all of whom are cooperating in the aftermath of this disaster, and are there to help start the process of cleaning up and rebuilding.

 

Watch a video on my visit to Sonoma County here.

As someone who spent 18 years in the housing industry – building communities and delivering affordable homes – I know areas affected by the fires can rebuild.

But we must also prepare for future disasters by ensuring that emergency plans include ways to safely evacuate seniors, low-income families, people with disabilities, and others who are the most vulnerable.

As Lt. Governor, disaster preparedness and strengthening our emergency response systems will be a top priority. There is nothing more important than protecting the public safety of all Californians.

Our hearts are with all of those affected. Learn more on how you can help victims of the Northern California fires at: www.eleniforca.com/wildfires

Sincerely,

Eleni
