Jerry Brown Signs Our Climate Bill!

I’ve got some breaking news for you — Governor Jerry Brown just signed my clean energy bill, SB100, putting California on a path to 100% clean energy by 2045.

I’ve got some breaking news for you — Governor Jerry Brown just signed my clean energy bill, SB100, putting California on a path to 100% clean energy by 2045. This is historic because there is no economy larger in the world that has committed to pure clean energy.

 

It’s an ambitious goal that will require hard work, but as Governor Brown said, California will lead the way. We won’t wait around for Washington D.C.to do the right thing..

 

Today is a day that reminds me why I got into public service. To push hard for what you believe is right, to protect this beautiful state and all its inhabitants without compromising on the things that really matter.

 

The environment really, really matters, and California just renewed its leadership in the world because of our efforts.

 

That’s why I’m asking you to make a contribution to my senate campaign. Because I know that California needs to lead by example, and elect an unapologetic progressive who will go to the mat for what really matters: climate change, Medicare for All, a $15 dollar minimum wage, immigration reform and an America whose policies are rooted in the notion that everyone deserves a fair shot at success.  

Can you pitch in $25 today and help power our campaign?

 

I don’t want to just run as the “progressive” in the race against Dianne Feinstein, I want to explain why I believe progressive values and political smarts can accomplish big things for California and the nation. This bill, SB100, took years of work to pass. There was all kinds of opposition and it looked like it was dead in the water more than once. It could have been significantly easier had we watered it down, compromised, and caved to special interests and campaign donors with giveaways and freebies. But that’s not what California needs. California needs to lead the way on transitioning to a 100% clean energy state by 2045 — full stop. So that’s what we fought for, not because it was easy, but because it was necessary.

 

John F. Kennedy’s moon speech always inspired me:

 

We choose to go to the Moon. We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win.

 

We choose to push for the most sweeping reinvention of our electric grid, and power sources not because it is the politically convenient thing to do or because it is easy, but because it is necessary, and California doesn’t shy away from a challenge that has a greater good for all.  

 

I’m asking you to pitch in and donate to my campaign, because Washington D.C. needs senators who will fight tooth and nail to protect our climate.

Chip in $25 today and let’s power this campaign (with clean energy) all the way.

 

Let’s do this.

 

In solidarity,

 

Kevin

Barack Obama on TJ Cox: “We need to send him to Congress”

President Obama just held his first big campaign event of the midterms — right here in California — to help Democrats win back the House in November.

TJ Cox for Congress


President Obama just held his first big campaign event of the midterms — right here in California — to help Democrats win back the House in November.

Team TJ was in attendance, and we were over the moon when President Obama gave a special shout out to TJ Cox during his remarks:

 

Watch the clip >> 


Click here to watch this part of Obama’s speech, share it with your friends, and pitch in $10 or more to support TJ’s campaign to flip the Central Valley from red to blue >>

President Obama made an important point this Saturday: “If we don’t step up now, things can get worse.” It’s not just crucially important that Democrats retake the House — we need to elect leaders who are going to put their communities front and center in Washington.

We’re proud to have President Obama’s support, but it won’t move the needle unless we take action to flip this seat and bring much-needed change to the Central Valley. Make a contribution right now and let’s send the message that California is up for the challenge >>

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Thanks,

Team TJ

Tony Delivers on For-Profit Charter School Ban!

“When we allow profit to take priority over children in public education, we fail to fulfill our constitutional duty to provide quality education to all children equally.” 

– Tony Thurmond

Good news Friend!

Tony has already delivered on a campaign promise well before Election Day! Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation Tony co-authored to ban for-profit charter schools in the state of California. 

AB 406 will directly affect companies like K12 Inc., a for-profit virtual charter school company listed on the New York Stock Exchange that reported nearly $900 million in revenue last year. Many complaints have been brought against K12 Inc. in recent years by its own teachers, resulting in a multimillion-dollar settlement with the state of California.

Tony believes no one should profit off of our students, but he’s not just talking, he’s taking action. With the election only 57 days away, you can help Tony beat the billionaires seeking to privatize public education by donating today!

Be sure to help spread the word by sharing Tony’s Facebook post and retweeting his tweet about Tony successfully banning for-profit charter schools throughout the state of California.
