Together We Will WIN back SD14!


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


 

 

 

 

Dear Democratic Friends,

I’m excited to announce that I am running to be the next State Senator for the 14thSenate District in the Central Valley!

I’m running for the State Senate because for far too long, Central Valley communities have been left behind. Eight years after the Great Recession our region continues to be plagued by economic inequality, disparity and chronic disinvestment. This stagnation has become the status quo for many of the people of the 14thSenate District with much of the blame for this tracing back to our failed incumbent Senator, Andy Vidak. He has left working families without a voice, without a champion, and without a leader. There is no one fighting for the causes of social and economic justice on behalf of the people of the 14th Senate District in our State’s Senate.

We deserve better!

The people of Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare Counties need and deserve a Senator deeply committed to tackling poverty, creating good paying middle-class jobs, investing in education, infrastructure improvements, as well as addressing long-standing water issues, the need for cleaner air, universal healthcare and protections for immigrant communities. These priorities underscore the critical need for new leadership, real progress and fresh ideas, and they are precisely the reasons why I am running for the 14th Senate District.

Born and raised in the district, I have experienced many of the same challenges faced by the people of the Central Valley. I know the effects a lack of resources and opportunities has on our communities and what that means to our families. It has been my lifelong mission to make Central Valley a healthier, safer, and more prosperous place for everyone. Currently, I serve as the President of the Earlimart School District Board of Trustees, elected in 2012 and reelected in 2016. I am the Co-founder and Chair of the Tulare County Political Action Committee (TCPAC) and the Regional Vice- Chair of the Chicano Latino Caucus of California Democratic Party.

It is time to WIN OUR SEAT BACK! We need a local Democrat to represent us in Sacramento. I am committed to working hard to earn every vote but I cannot do this alone. I need your help; I am counting on friends and fellow democrats like you to help me along the way.

Your contributions will help me to cover the costs of kicking off a strong campaign.

Below is the link to my website and ActBlue account, where you can donate directly to my campaign. Anything helps and everything counts!

Together, we can WIN!

I look forward to working with you throughout the campaign and on the road to VICTORY in 2018!

Thank you in advance,

Abigail Solis

Our right to vote is under attack

CDP

Fifty-two years ago to‌day, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law to protect voting rights for every American, especially African American voters in the South.

To‌day, our right to vote is under Republican attack like never before — including by President Trump and his bogus “voter fraud” commission.

But California Democrats are fighting back, and our Secretary of State Alex Padilla is leading the charge.

On today’s anniversary of the VRA, will you add your name to stand with Secretary of State Alex Padilla in fighting Trump’s voter suppression efforts?

President Trump created his delusional “voter fraud” commission after the election to justify his own insecurities after losing the popular vote by an unprecedented margin — thanks in part to his landslide rejection by California voters.

What’s even more alarming is that Trump’s commission is using these groundless allegations of fraud as a smokescreen to request the personal information of every registered voter in California and across the country.

This is a transparent effort to disenfranchise voters and further suppress the vote, and Secretary of State Padilla has repeatedly denounced the commission’s’ efforts and refused to share the information of California voters with Trump’s sham commission.

Led by Secretary of State Padilla, California Democrats will continue to fight back against any attempts of voter suppression by Republicans in Washington — and we are hard at work expanding opportunities to vote in our great state.

On today’s anniversary, add your name to stand with Secretary of State Alex Padilla in standing up to Trump’s voter suppression efforts.

Thank you for being a California Democrat and for being a part of this fight.
