Looking Ahead

Thank you for your sustained support of my leadership as California State Controller.  It is a privilege to serve as California’s CFO, working every day to ensure our state is on firm financial footing and making decisions that will improve the lives of all Californians. 

I am proud of my track record for increasing transparency and accountability and delivering results.  I look forward to building on what we have accomplished together as California meets the challenges of housing and homelessness, climate change, and the future of work, all of which will have severe economic impacts on individual Californians and our state if not addressed with head-on intention and focused leadership.

Let’s continue to work together to make California a stronger and better place for all to live, work, and thrive.

I wish you and your loved ones a healthy and meaningful 2020.

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

 

 

 

 

The people of my district are resilient, and they have to be. Because for decades our elected officials, at all levels of government, have done little to nothing to end our healthcare and poverty crisis, give those that need it a hand up, and work to eliminate the unfair way money influences our political system.
 

I’m running to actually bring change to this district and other districts across the country.

Andrew is convinced that if he runs his campaign with integrity in the face of the attacks against him, people will take notice and invest in our grassroots movement. I think the way he’s conducted himself while Jerry Dyer, Devin Nunes, and Fresno Republicans have thrown attack after attack his way, each one more shameful than the last, is one of the reasons we all believe in his campaign so much. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I think the way he’s conducted himself while Jerry Dyer, Devin Nunes, and Fresno Republicans have thrown attack after attack his way, each one more shameful than the last, is one of the reasons we all believe in his campaign so much.

But here’s the problem: his Republican opponent is fundraising off the charts — and since we’re refusing corporate PAC and developer money, it’s hard for us to compete. Republicans are fighting tooth and nail to keep their grip on local politics.

I’m meeting with Andrew in the morning, and I’m going to have to give him the bad news that we’re way off track to hit our goal in time. Unless 74 of you step up before tomorrow morning to make a grassroots donation.

Can I count on your help to hit our end of year goal in time?

Election season is in full gear

As the race heats up, I’ve been spending all my time outside of work meeting with voters and campaigning like crazy. And it’s become apparent to me that successful campaigns require two things — hard work and money. The yard signs you see lining the street, the ads you see on your television and your computer, the clipboards you see volunteers using — none of these things are free. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As the race heats up, I’ve been spending all my time outside of work meeting with voters and campaigning like crazy. And it’s become apparent to me that successful campaigns require two things — hard work and money.

The yard signs you see lining the street, the ads you see on your television and your computer, the clipboards you see volunteers using — none of these things are free.

And we’re up against a LOT of money:

Fundraising so far: Democrat Andrew Janz: $70,000 / Republican Jerry Dyer: $290,000

That means Dyer has enough money to drown out our messaging — and with my campaign facing so many attacks from him, local Republicans, and Devin Nunes, we can’t afford to fall silent against him.

Will you chip in before our end of year deadline so we can compete in this election? We’re $5,763 short of our goal, and we need your help to make up the difference:

Thank you,

Andrew

“No Town Left Behind”
SORIA ENDS HER 2019 LISTENING TOUR
 

Esmeralda Soria visited Merced, Atwater, Planada, Gustine, Madera, Dos Palos, Los Baños, Chowchilla, Fresno, and Livingston in an effort to hear directly from residents on important issues such as affordable housing, education, health care, prescription drug costs, jobs, and clean air and water.


FRESNO, CA – Esmeralda Soria spent the past three months visiting every single town in the 16th Congressional District including Merced, Atwater, Planada, Gustine, Madera, Dos Palos, Los Baños, Chowchilla, Fresno and Livingston, where she heard directly from residents on several key issues.
 
While meeting with two of Planada’s Community Service District Board members, the issues of jobs, water, immigration reform, increasing costs of housing, and infrastructure were among the topics of discussions. In Planada, she met with Planada’s Community Service District Board to talk about the increasing cost of housing and how families have felt ignored and disengaged in this area of the district.
 
Gustine residents and small business owners welcomed her with open arms and talked about their concerns with air pollution, lack of jobs, gun violence, and how they feel overlooked by the establishment. Madera voters also spoke about issues with clean drinking water and affordable housing. They are excited to hear that Esmeralda Soria will represent the people and not corporations.
 
In Dos Palos, she met with the daughter of Cambodian immigrants and recent San Francisco State graduate who came back to the valley after her father, a small business owner for 16 years faced serious health challenges. Her story is that of many young people in this district who are juggling college debt while trying to help their aging parents.
 
In Los Baños, she met with local community members and toured the Merced College Los Baños CTE Welding program to learn about existing career opportunities for local students and explore the needs that exist to expand those opportunities for the rest of the District.
 
In Chowchilla, she met with residents who also shared the sentiments of the rest of the district in their desire to address the housing, education, and healthcare issues. Fresno residents expressed similar concerns while also stressing the issue of affordable housing and affordable education. The last stop was Atwater, where residents have also been affected by California’s Affordable Housing Crisis and where students are struggling to pay for higher education. She met with doctors, nurses and frontline healthcare workers to discuss critical healthcare needs in the Valley.
 
“Too often, politicians go to Washington, listen to the special interests, and forget the people here in the Valley. I promise to listen to every voice in every town to ensure that the people of 16th Congressional District have the representation that they deserve,” Soria says. 
 
Soria believes that in order to truly represent the people of the 16th Congressional District, she needs to talk to everyone, everywhere, leaving no town behind.
