Vote NO on Prop 6!

Our progressive values and the safety and condition of our bridges, roads, and public transportation systems are under attack by right-wing Republicans like GOP gubernatorial candidate John Cox, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and others who support Donald Trump’s hateful and divisive agenda.

They’re behind Proposition 6 on our November ballot, which would repeal $5.1 billion in existing transportation funding currently dedicated to fixing roads, bridges, highways, and public transit systems.

Republicans think Prop 6 is their ticket to excite and drive their few remaining voters to the polls in hopes they can retain their majority in Congress and even pick up additional seats to help salvage Trump’s failed presidency.

We cannot let them succeed.

We need to mobilize every Democrat, progressive, and caring voter to defeat Proposition 6 and prevent the elimination of this important and historic investment we are making in California’s infrastructure and future.

The Republicans are using this solely to drive out their voters and their base is fired up by this measure. WE must strongly resist their efforts and mobilize our own voters to OPPOSE Prop 6. We need local Democratic Parties, Democratic clubs, and all of our activists to be on the front lines in this fight, urging every community in the state to Oppose Prop 6 to ensure our roads and bridges are safe.

No on Prop 6 campaign representatives will reach out to your local County Party shortly to request time on the agenda at an upcoming meeting. The campaign will provide you with materials that will help you educate your community on the dangers of this ballot measure and the importance of protecting this investment in our state.

If you would like to join the campaign, request a speaker for your upcoming meeting, or have any questions, please reach out to alamirande@bcfpublicaffairs.com or 916-443-0872. For materials to distribute at your upcoming meetings and in your community, please contact Sandra Lowe at sandra@cadem.org.

We must stop this right-wing attack on California. We must mobilize to reject Prop 6.

Democratically Yours,

Eric C. Bauman, Chair
California Democratic Party

Devin Nunes’ Constituents File Petition to Remove “Farmer” From his Name on the Ballot

Fresno, CA (August 9, 2018) – This morning, the people of California’s 22nd Congressional District filed a petition to Sacramento Superior Court asking to remove “farmer” from Devin Nunes’ description on the ballots. An old Nunes supporter who recently switched to supporting Janz said that his congressman has forgotten about farmers and has no business claiming to be one.

 

“The people of California’s Congressional District are sick and tired of Nunes’ lies as the tariffs and ICE raids bury our local economy. This is disrespectful to our farmers and growers who work hard every day providing for our communities,” Janz said.

Devin Nunes Opponent Andrew Janz Responds to Newly Released Candid Tapes

 

Fresno, CA (August 8, 2018) – Andrew Janz heard the news that Devin Nunes was secretly recorded at a fundraiser saying his job is to end the Robert Mueller investigation and that they get there by impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

 

“We only have a few months left, right. If we vote to impeach, what that does, that triggers the Senate, has to take a vote, you don’t want them to drop everything and not confirm the supreme court justice,” Nunes said.

 

Andrew’s response: “The corruption in Washington is rampant, and Nunes is at the heart of it. My job is to make sure that this is Nunes’ last term in Congress so that we can move the Central Valley forward.”

Andrew Janz Hosts Town Hall Despite Violent Twitter Threats

 

 

Clovis, CA (Aug. 8, 2018) – Andrew Janz for Congress hosted a senior issues town hall with Social Security Works PAC President Jon “Bowzer” Bauman Wednesday morning. Two days before, the campaign received violent threats on Twitter that read: “How about I waste you and everybody in the Clovis town hall.” Despite these intimidations, Andrew still showed up to do his job; talk to voters.

 

“This is a clear attempt to silence voters and people wanting to engage in political discourse. It’s an attack on our first amendment. Nothing is going to stop me from talking about the issues that seniors and veterans are facing here in the Central Valley,” Andrew said.

 

Over 100 seniors showed their support for the candidate at 10 AM on Wednesday. Andrew discussed an array of topics including social security, Medicaid, corruption in Washington, and his plan to take back the Central Valley.

 

Clovis Police Department was present at the town hall and is running an investigation into this threat.

 

“Thank you to Clovis Police Department for protecting and serving our community,” Andrew said.
