Progressive candidate for U.S. Senate comes to Fresno!

Good morning all,

Don’t forget that this Saturday at 6 p.m. you have the opportunity to meet Pat Harris, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in 2018! Pat Harris vigorously supports single payer healthcare, transitioning to 100% renewable energy, and best of all – he takes no corporate donations.

Pat Harris announced his campaign about a week ago, and he’s on his “listening tour” getting to know the grassroots in our great state. Pat and his team want to hear directly from progressive organizers and find out what we consider important issues here in the Central Valley.

The event will be held at Common Space in Downtown Fresno (and we are very thankful to the FCDCC for allowing us to borrow a few chairs!). Free pizza will be provided as well.

Feel free to forward this to your friends and neighbors. Let’s show Pat that Fresno is a welcoming, progressive, and vibrant community!

In solidarity,

Emily Cameron

Did you see it


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


Yesterday, the LA Times published a Q&A with Delaine about her race for Governor which you can read here, but I wanted to share some highlights, and I hope you will share with your friends.

On the need for long-range planning

“I think it’s appalling that the state of California isn’t planning, and not only in K-12 and higher ed or preschool. It’s not planning in water, infrastructure. It’s not planning in so many areas. And there needs to be somebody who’s more nimble, who’s looking at the horizon instead of the hand in front of their face.”

The difference between an expense and an investment

“When I got to Sacramento I was really surprised that so many people treated everything as if it was an expense. I mean, that’s what I’ve said for years about the department of finance: They know the cost of everything and the value of nothing.”

It’s time for universal healthcare 

“We’re spending more and getting less because there’s such a big profit for all kinds of entities, including the pharmaceutical industry. If we invested in high-quality care for all people we wouldn’t have the big expense of people getting really sick because they didn’t get early support and care.”

Path to Victory

“I don’t need the most money. I need enough money.”
