We won’t back down: Let’s turn out in record numbers on Nov. 6

Join us for the People's Day of Action

Prominent Democrats, including President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, have been targeted with explosive packages sent through the mail. Just this morning, a suspicious package was intercepted at a mail facility in California addressed to me.

This is an attempt to intimidate, suppress, and stifle the work we’ve been doing. With 11 days to go until the midterm elections that will define our country, we won’t back down.

I’m thankful no one has been hurt, and I’ve been working closely with my staff to ensure everyone here at NextGen America remains safe. But I want to emphasize: This will not deter us.

We are still ready to turn out in record numbers at the polls on November 6.

We are seeing a systematic attack on our democracy and our rule of law that extends much further than these assassination attempts. Whether it’s voter suppression, voter intimidation, attacks on our free press, gerrymandering, or attempted violence, the trust and norms that are the actual basis for our civil society and political system are being eroded.

Donald Trump has called us an “angry mob,” but we call it democracy. Make a plan to vote on November 6.

Thank you,

Tom Steyer

Children’s hospitals across our state endorse Measure P!

Dear ‘Yes On P’ Supporter,

You may have heard that Valley Children’s Hospital and Saint Agnes Medical Center both endorse Measure P – but have you also heard that the entire California Children’s Hospital Association (CCHA) also endorses our measure?

A growing number of healthcare leaders and local physicians are in agreement on the importance parks play in the health of a community, and are urging our city to vote YES ON P!

“On behalf of the California Children’s Hospital Association (CCHA), it is my pleasure to endorse Measure P, which would provide support for the investment and maintenance of public parks in the City of Fresno. We know that access to safe, public parks encourages children to be active, which in turn reduces the risk of obesity and it concomitant diseases, such as diabetes. Beyond that, however, multiple studies indicate that spending time outdoors provides a wide range of additional benefits to children and families, including improved motor strength and coordination, reduced feelings of sadness and anger, and increased levels of Vitamin D. In fact, the health benefits of nature are so significant that physicians at our hospitals now counsel the families of our patients on the importance of visiting parks and in some cases prescribe visits to parks as a way to improve health and lower stress for children and families.

For all of these reasons, CCHA is happy to endorse Measure P.”

– Ann-Louise Kuhns, President and CEO of CCHA

Fresno Democrats – Restoring Trust in CD22

Restoring Trust in Congressional District 22

fresnoDevin Nunes is one of Donald Trump’s most loyal allies and the one most comfortable with Trump’s brand of bald-faced lies. Nunes has made headlines by spinning a web of accusations targeting the Justice Department’s investigation of Russian involvement in Trump’s election, and now that Nunes is up for reelection the lies have come home.

Nunes lives in a dark reality, swirling with enemies, one where despite controlling every branch of government the Republican Party is still the weak and pitiable victim of a mythical “deep state.”

            “Devin Nunes first and foremost needs to be held accountable for his inattention to the Central Valley,” says Michael D. Evans, chair of the Fresno County Democratic Party, “and then for his toady-istic grandstanding on behalf of the corrupt Trump administration.”

Nunes is following his master’s vilification of the media. A few weeks ago, he sent out a glossy 40-page magazine laying out a sinister conspiracy purported against him by the Fresno Bee and his electoral challenger Andrew Janz. Of the accusations, most are false, misunderstandings of how journalism works or anger at the legal First Amendment actions of private citizens.

That expensive mailer went out too early to include the fascinating Esquire article that examined the Nunes family farm, located in Iowa and dependent on undocumented immigrant labor. Nunes was again furious and immediately sent out a round of e-mails accusing Esquire of stalking his parents, despite the reporter making a single request for an interview and leaving when turned down.

            Janz is Nunes’ Democratic opponent and so is the most focused target of Nunes’ current batch of lies. Nunes has accused Janz of trespassing on the farm of Nunes’ uncle, Gerald Nunes. In fact, the Janz campaign was filming on an adjacent farm where it had written permission from the property owner to do so. The roadside where they parked is in fact a public right of way, but the Janz film crew still agreed to move their trucks to another roadside that did not border Gerald Nunes’ land. Gerald Nunes was asked to leave by the sheriff’s deputies.

Nunes also complains that Janz is campaigning while working as a Fresno County prosecutor. Janz’s boss, District Attorney Lisa Smittcamp, says this isn’t true and has thoroughly debunked this claim. The DA has had no issues with Janz and is not aware of him campaigning on county time at all.

            Nunes has lied repeatedly about the evidence against Trump’s campaign regarding Russia. He has lied about the media that reports on both his and the President’s mistakes. He has lied about his opponent, Andrew Janz, and the people of his district. All this has happened while the Congressional member has refused to face his constituents here in the Central Valley with any sort of town hall or public forum.

            “The time for change is now,” notes Evans. “Nunes serves in Washington at the behest of radical right-wing special interests—the much discussed ‘swamp.’ Andrew Janz will be a true advocate for delivering solutions to the Central Valley.”

People have the power. Vote on Nov. 6.

13 days to go

Let’s come together and take back Congress.

It’s only Wednesday, and Trump has already declared himself a “nationalist,” stoked racist fears about the caravan of Central American refugees, and had his administration’s cruel plan to “define” transgender Americans out of existence leaked to the public.

Let me be clear: We will not let the Trump administration’s hate and bigotry erase transgender Californians. We will not let Trump and his rubber stamps in Congress continue their xenophobic and hateful attacks on immigrants and refugees.

And we will continue to fight for survivors of sexual assault, working Californians, or any other members of our communities under constant attack by Trump’s administration. With just 13 days to go until November 6, one of the best ways for us to stand up to Trump and his GOP lackeys is by doing what we can to take back the House for Democrats.

Will you chip in $20.18 or more right now, so we can win big for Democrats here in California on Election Day?   

As California Democrats, we will always fight to protect our trans family, friends, coworkers, and community members. And we will always speak out against xenophobia and white supremacy.

But to be able to stand up for our communities and our values on the national level, it’s critical that Democrats take back the House — and the path to a blue Congress runs through California.

We can take back Congress, but we need your support to get out the vote these final 13 days before Election Day.

Chip in $20.18 or more right now, so we can take back the House for Democrats.

Let’s come together now and take back Congress.

Democratically Yours,

Eric C. Bauman, Chair
California Democratic Party
