I’m asking you

It’s been a really busy week. And frankly, they’re all busy weeks right now — between fighting the Trump administration’s cruel immigration policies to defending the Affordable Care Act to standing up for our environmental protections, we have our work cut for us.

 

Now, our campaign is facing a crucial fundraising deadline next week and I don’t have a lot of time to worry about raising money.

Can I count on you to chip in $5 before Thursday’s fundraising deadline?

If it sounds like we spend a lot of time in court, you’re not imagining it.

 

But as long as the Trump administration keeps trying to roll back regulations protecting the air our children breathe, keeps trying to ban transgender Americans from serving in the armed forces, and keeps refusing to even acknowledge the reality of climate change, I’ll keep doing whatever it takes to fight back.

Your support makes it possible for me to fight for our families and our values. Contribute $5 before Thursday’s deadline to help me keep fighting.

Thank you,

 

Xavier

Yes on Proposition 8 — Dialysis patients deserve quality care

Kidney dialysis centers are dangerously unregulated. Yes on 8 will protect patients.                                                                                                                                                                         

 

CDP logo

      

This November, the California Democratic Party is prioritizing the passage of Proposition 8, the Fair Pricing for Dialysis Act.

As a Registered Nurse, I know first-hand how patients are affected by the conditions of the clinic and, of course, the high cost of care. Both of these critical issues are at the forefront of this proposition. We must insist on clean and safe clinics and we cannot allow corporations to gouge consumers, and as a result, increase the cost for all patients.

Dialysis is a life-saving treatment in which a patient whose kidneys have failed can have their blood cleaned of toxins and excess substances (like potassium) by running it through a machine that acts as an artificial kidney and then returning it to their circulation. 

 

Dialysis corporations make billions by inflating charges for some of these gravely ill patients, but they don’t always invest enough in basic sanitation. Bloodstains, cockroaches, and dirty bathrooms have all been reported at some dialysis clinics, which have the potential to contribute to high infection rates.

California’s largest dialysis corporations make nearly $4 billion in profits from their dialysis operations, charging some patients an estimated $150,000 a year — approximately a 350 percent markup. But here’s a fact: high prices for healthcare services drive up costs for all Californians. Proposition 8 will require the corporations to refund excessive profits — more than 15% above the cost of patient care — that aren’t spent on improving patient conditions. 

As your Chair, I am urging you to join me and voting YES on Proposition 8. California needs to continue to be the Big Blue Beacon of Hope, and your support of Proposition 8 will make the difference in the lives of many Californians who need our help.

Click here to formally endorse Proposition 8. For more information,visit the Yes on 8 webpage. 

Democratically Yours,

Eric C. Bauman, RN, Chair

What a picnic!

We DID meet our neighbors and were welcomed by some local dignitaries. Thanks to Mayor Lee Brand, Supervisor Sal Quintero. Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula, Fire Chief Kerri Donis and FPD SW District Commander Captain Mark Salazar. We include them all as friends of Chinatown.

What a tremendous effort by the Fresno Fire Department. Besides offering their facility, they kicked in for cleanup. And then there’s Robert Castillo, FFD Public Information Officer. He served on the committee from the start, as well as doing all the barbecuing and bringing tables, chairs and supplies.

This would not have happened without the tremendous help of our CFF board, especially Morgan Doizaki, June Stanfield and Barbara Wilson. And we owe so much to Meet Your Neighbors chair, and volunteer, Gloria Flores. Also thanks to Clay Gilpin, Enrique Reade and Yuji Ishibashi.

No event works without sponsors. We’re very grateful to our Meet Your Neighbor sponsors.

REPORT: Farmers hurting from Trump’s trade war

The US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service just released statistics show

TJ Cox for Congress

Trump’s trade war is still raging and farmers across the country are still hurting.

The US Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service just released statistics showing that “net cash income” is down over 20% in the Central Valley agricultural zone.

TJ Cox works in the almond business — so do 104,000 other Californians. The almond industry is projected to lose $1 billion due to this trade war. Trump’s tariffs are putting local businesses, good-paying jobs, and economic growth in the Central Valley at risk. That’s why locals are so angry that David Valadao REFUSES to push back on Trump to prevent this trade war from getting worse.

We need your input. Even if you’re not in the farming industry, this is an issue that impacts everyone. Can you take our one-minute survey and tell us where you stand on Trump’s trade tariffs?


Thanks for sharing your input,

In Fresno on Monday: EPA/NHTSA hearing on rolling back clean car standards

Dear Central Valley Progressives,

 

As you may know, Trump’s EPA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are proposing to roll back fuel economy standards.

 

I just learned that the only hearing on this issue in California will be next Monday, Sept. 24, in Fresno. The Sierra Club is running a free bus from Oakland to Fresno, to bring folks in from the Bay Area – but we need to pack this hearing and make all our voices heard. Can you join us, and invite others in your community?

 

To register to testify, sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScjY2d2KSxrLFY-NlG61NwG-62_vo9ZQWUXJnO9A0sbtBkXLw/viewform

 

Here’s more about the hearing – one of only 3 total in the country:

https://www.nhtsa.gov/sites/nhtsa.dot.gov/files/documents/2021-2026_nprm_hearings_notice_08222018.pdf

 

To reserve a spot on the Oakland bus, email julia.foote@sierraclub.org.

 

PlugIn America will also be having a huge Electric Vehicle rally in Fresno that morning, Sept. 24, from 8 to 10 am, at The Grand 1401, 1401 Fulton Street, in Fresno. Contact kstainken@pluginamerica.org if you plan to participate.

 

I will be there to testify, and I invite you and your networks to send folks as well. Please share this widely, and let me know if you plan to attend by replying to this email. 

 

Thank you!

Three ways you can help pass ‘Yes On P’

Dear Supporter of Fresno’s Parks,

The ‘Yes On P’ campaign is in full swing, and we have hit the streets to educate the community on the benefits of Measure P. We have signs popping up across the city and canvassers out walking and knocking on doors, but we need more.

We have less than six weeks left till election day and now is the time to kick in to gear and help.

How you will help pass this important measure so we can have safe, clean parks throughout Fresno?

HELP PASS MEASURE P!

Show your support with a #YesOnP yard sign. Pick one up at our campaign office (5380 N. Fresno St., Suite 105, Fresno, CA 93710 – near Fresno & Barstow) or sign-up online.

Help pass #YesOnP by canvassing door-to-door. Adopt your precinct and walk in your own neighborhood. We’ll provide materials, scripts, and a simple mobile app.

Every contribution is crucial to the campaign, and will help ensure we can communicate with Fresno voters about #YesOnP. Donate online – it’s quick and easy!
