It was great seeing you all and spending time with so many dedicated progressives this past weekend at the California Democratic Party E-board.


After seeing all the commitment and energy from so many party leaders, organizers, and activists, I’m confident we are up to the task as we prepare for the 2018 elections!


Last week we shared with you the great news about the growing momentum for my reelection campaign. I’m proud to have earned the endorsements of great California leaders including Governor Jerry Brown, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) California, California Professional Firefighters, and Equality California.


Our momentum continues: I’m proud to share the news that Sierra Club California has just endorsed as well.


I’m honored and thankful for the confidence so many leaders have placed in me and the work I’m doing.


And I’m thankful for your continued support as well.


Wishing you and your loved ones a happy, safe, and warm Thanksgiving celebration,


Alex Padilla
California Secretary of State

re: the GOP tax sham

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

Last week I watched as Washington Republicans, including several California representatives, voted to approve an attack on middle-class families dressed up as a tax plan.

This tax plan is a disgrace, and nothing more than a giveaway to the ultra-wealthy. If this becomes law, millions of Californian families will bear the burden of this handout to the Republicans’ wealthy donors.

I believe in fighting for our middle-class and working families. If you’re with me, add your name today to say you oppose this tax sham.

My parents taught me that there was no higher calling than helping others. It’s why I became a doctor, and why I’m running for lieutenant governor — because I believe our elected officials should do everything they can to help our communities and lift them up.

This tax plan does just the opposite. Reports are coming out that this plan could hurt home prices in California and create serious credit risks for local governments.

We need to lift up all Californians, not cut down millions to ensure the top 1% get a tax break. We need to make it clear that Californians are united against the sham they’re trying to push forward in Washington.

Add your name to mine now: call out Washington Republicans trying to ram through a sham of a tax bill.

Peace be with you,

Dr. Asif Mahmood
Candidate for Lieutenant Governor of California
