From our friends, the “Mountain Democrats”:
Please invite your friends and family of all persuasions to meet and greet with Jack Uppal Wednesday, October 10th (tomorrow), at the Queen’s Inn by the River from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The Queen’s Inn is located at 41139 Hwy 41 just before Hoof and Paw Veterinary (click here for map).
The Queen’s Inn serves some nice wines and other libations so come by for some refreshment and good Democratic discussions. We’re really hoping to show local support by turning out in NUMBERS so please come and be NUMBERED with us!!!
Behind the Scenes:
Tom McClintock, currently Congressman in the “old” Fourth District and candidate for re-election in the newly reconfigured Fourth (which now includes Oakhurst), has been invited by the Oakhurst Chamber of Commerce to join Jack Uppal at this event for a formal debate. You might have seen this invitation referenced in Peter Cavanaugh’s Sierra Star “For Your Consideration” column on September 21st. The invitation was repeated in the October 4th edition. We don’t know yet if McClintock is going to accept, but will keep you posted.
So . . . . .HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!!!!!!

From our friend Carol Mills, Fresno County Democratic Endorsed candidate for Fresno Unified School District Trustee Area No. 5:
Dear Friends and Supporters,
This is a critical time in the election cycle – absentee ballots will go out October 9 and election day is 39 days away!
My campaign is having an organized precinct walk this Saturday, Sept. 29, to reach out to as many voters as possible before ballots go out. We will be meeting at 1740 N. Thorne, at 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 29th. Instructions and materials will be handed out before we start; lunch will be provided afterward. Last weekend, high school and college students were join us.
Please take just a couple of hours from your weekend to help me connect with voters – and you get to enjoy a free lunch for donating your time. I really need your support! Please email and let us know you’ll be joining us so we can plan for enough food.
Hope to see you Saturday,
