Meet our organizers!

*** No candidate for Lt. Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

I’m proud to be the only candidate for Lt. Governor to campaign in every county in California, and I am proud that we are making our 58-county strategy a cornerstone of this campaign. I have always been an organizer, and I believe that leaders need to listen to the people they represent. The voices across this state matter.

In order to reach every corner of California, we’re signing up County Captains and using the latest digital tools to engage people across the state. We have an incredible team spreading the word about our campaign every single day. 

If you live in Northern California, you may have met our Outreach Director Elmy Bermejo or our Deputy Campaign Manager Angeles Roy. Or if you live in Southern California, perhaps you have seen Southern California Director Dallas Fowler with Faye Geyen.

Elmy, Angeles, Dallas, Faye, and the rest of our grassroots team have been expanding our ground game, but there is still more work to do and we need your help to propel us to June.

Please make a contribution to our campaign today to help fuel our team as we crisscross the state.

Examples of how your donation can make a real difference:

  • $14 covers the cost for us to mail an Organizer Kit of buttons and literature to a County Captain
  • $54 pays for the average Amtrak roundtrip ticket
  • $225 funds roundtrip airfare for a member of our outreach team
  • $800 helps us print another round of T-shirts!

Consider making a donation today to keep our team energized and to get the word out about our campaign.

Thank you!

Vote Veva Islas for Fresno City Council – District 7

Join the Campaign

We are having a great time and community support is growing every day! If you want to be part of our team, I encourage you to become part of our Friendly Neighbor program. A Friendly Neighbor is someone who supports voter engagement in their neighborhood for the June 5th election. Tuesday, April 17th, will be our next Friendly Neighbor meeting in District 7. Contact our Campaign Manager, Alex Ramos-O’Casey, if you would like to join the Friendly Neighbor program.

We are also continuing our neighborhood walks and phone banking every day from now until Election Day. Potluck Phone Banks take place every Wednesday from 4pm-8pm and Weekend Walks are every Saturday from 10:30am – 6:00pm and Sundays 11:30am – 7:00pm. Calling and walking is how we win!

You can join the campaign by contacting my Campaign Manager, Alex Ramos-O’Casey at alex@voteveva2018.com.

¡Viva Vendors! – Save the Date – April 27, 2018

Save the date for a special vendor appreciation night, ¡Viva Vendor!, open to all on April 27th at 5:30pm in District 7! Stay tuned for more details. Viva Vendors is part of our on-going efforts to celebrate the vibrant community and small businesses that operate in District 7.

Young Girls of Color Rock!

Joining our campaign are two young girls from South East Fresno who will be our Artivism Director and Youth Organizer for the campaign. They are the next generation of leaders. Together, Amira and Naima, along with their best friends, started The Poderosas, a young girl of color paint crew. Their mission is to create art that tells their stories about what it’s like to grow up in South East Fresno. Other youth are welcome to join and participate in the next Poderosas paint party on April 20th at 5:00pm. The art pieces created by the Poderosas will be featured in our campaign events and campaign materials. For more information contact Alex.

Sincerely,

Veva Islas
