UPDATED: Dr. Ed’s Record on Higher Education

View this email in your browser

Dear Friend,

I believe a higher education is the cornerstone to democracy. As Lieutenant Governor, I look forward to working on higher education issues.

I am committed to using my positions as a voting and vocal member of the UC Board of Regents and the CSU Board of Trustees to make higher education more affordable and accessible for all Californians.

As a proud CSU graduate, I know the importance that our public higher education plays in providing access to a quality higher education. CSU helped me get to where I am today. However, I know the challenges students face – as a single parent I worked 35 hour weeks, while attending school as a Cal Grant recipient just to make ends meet.

As a State Legislator, I fought to reduce the financial burden on students and families. I advocated for full funding to the CSU and UC systems to ensure no tuition increases and rejected any proposed tuition increases. I will continue working to ensure our public universities are accessible and affordable for ALL students, especially those from underserved and underrepresented communities.

A bold policy agenda is necessary to make our higher education system our top priority. We must return to the dream of affordable higher education established in the California Master Plan for Higher Education. That means reforming the Master Plan of the 1960s to build an education system that serves the workforce of the future.

Can you help me spread the word to your friends and family about my campaign?

In the 11th Hour, we have the momentum.

After countless hours of hard work on the ground, it’s becoming clearer each day that there is a strong pathway to elect a Democrat in California’s 21st district.

TJ Cox for Congress

Real quick:

 

We got some HUGE news last night. In the final stretch of this election, the analysts at Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball  UPGRADED TJ’s chances of winning in California’s 21st district.

 

This upgrade reflects what we’re seeing on the ground. After countless hours of hard work, it’s becoming clearer each day that if we turn out our supporters — there is a strong pathway to finally electing a Democrat in California’s 21st district.

 

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Before I head back to the field, I want to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to TJ’s campaign. You truly are the fuel that allows this campaign to run, and when we send TJ to Congress, it will be because of supporters like you.

 

TJ can flip CA-21 on Election Day, but it can only happen if we leave it all on the field. Contribute whatever amount you can today to make sure we finish strong and connect with as many voters as possible before November 6th >>

 

Thanks for your support!

Fresno Democrats: Yes on P, No to Fear

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 2, 2018

Yes on P, No to Fear

fresno—Fresno’s public parks need help. The Trust for Public Land has rated Fresno’s parks dead last or near last among the country’s 100 largest cities for the past five years. But congratulations, in 2018 we managed to be only the 94th worse. Obviously, something needs to change. Measure P’s 3/8-cent sales tax would go a long way to restoring our parks, allowing for greater community engagement, outdoor safety and improved property values.

            In the last few weeks before the Nov. 6 election, a crop of blue signs has sprouted across Fresno, shouting against Measure P. A close look at the small print on the bottom of the sign shows it was paid for by Fresnans for a Safer Community.

            You might rightly ask what a funding increase to improve park maintenance has to do with decreasing public safety, and the answer is, of course, nothing. Indeed, it is the opposite. Measure P would not mean a single cent reduction in police funding and in fact would result in further funds for park safety.

            “Measure P has broad bipartisan support,” says Michael D. Evans, chair of the Fresno County Democratic Party. “Former mayors Alan Autry and Ashley Swearengin are supporting the measure, and it is hard to believe that anyone in our community would oppose improving our parks.”

            Despite the overwhelming need and the obvious benefit to our city of having a good parks system, the current mayor, Lee Brand, opposes Measure P. That shows an absence of leadership and sends the wrong message to our community.

            Why is Brand opposing Measure P? Because public safety advocates oppose it. And how did that happen? The mayor wanted a ballot measure that would jointly address funding for public safety and parks. However, the two factions were unable to come to an agreement on how that would work.

            As a result, the parks proponents went to the voters, gathering more than 30,000 signatures to get their initiative on the ballot. The proponents of a public safety tax did not do that. They were outworked and now, apparently out of spite, are opposing the parks measure.

            Moreover, for reasons not fully explained, the city inadvertently left out some important wording from the approved description of Measure P for the voter handbook. That language should include “improving park safety; improving accessibility for persons with disabilities; updating and maintaining playgrounds and restrooms; improving youth and veteran job training; improving after school programs and beautifying roadways.”

            “Cities are defined by their quality of life,” notes Evans. “And a good park system is a strong indicator of a city’s livability. For far too long, we have failed to provide adequate parks for residents south of Shaw Avenue. Measure P can remedy that.”

            Measure P is needed. Without public spaces to tie our communities together, the city deteriorates. When children don’t have safe places to play, they hang out somewhere else and are exposed to less savory influences. If we do not commit funds to maintenance, parks can fall apart leading to injuries. For years, our community has let this problem grow. Now we have the chance to step up and fix it. Vote Yes on Measure P.

            People have the power. Vote on Nov. 6.

BIG Rating Upgrades in CA-21 and CA-22

**Big Rating Changes**

Sabato’s Crystal Ball moves CA-21 towards Dems

Cook Political Report moves CA-22 towards Dems

< ![if !vml]>

Rectangle: Rounded Corners: HELP FLIP THESE SEATS »< ![endif]>

 


 

This is big. The highly-respected University of Virginia Center for Politics just upgraded Democrat TJ Cox’s chances in CA-21. This comes days after the Cook Political Report upgraded Democrat Andrew Janz’ chances against Trump favorite Devin Nunes in CA-22!

These ratings changes put the Central Valley squarely at the heart of the battle for the House and stopping Donald Trump’s dangerous agenda. The momentum is on our side! We have a real chance to defeat both Devin Nunes and David Valadao, two of Trump’s most loyal supporters in Congress. But Republicans are fighting back by pouring millions of special-interest money in a last-ditch attempt to save their candidates.

We can’t let them win. That’s why Valley Works PAC is on the ground in the Central Valley turning out Democratic voters in CA-21 and CA-22. But with all the last-minute Republican money coming in, we need your help to fight back! Can you rush a donation now to make sure they don’t take the momentum back?

Devin Nunes and David Valadao have the Republican machine led by Donald Trump and Paul Ryan on their side but Valley Works is on the ground and making a big difference. Unlike other PACs, we’re focused exclusively on the Central Valley and led by leaders from the Central Valley. We know how to win here.

We only have four days to pull off a upset and beat Donald Trump’s allies and turn the Central Valley blue. We’re counting on your help! Chip in with a contribution today »

Thanks for all you do!

Not Backing Down

Friend

Have you seen the commercials my opponent is airing against me? The lies are endless and the assault on my character is the lowest form of politics.

You know what? That does not scare me and I’m not backing down. From the beginning, this campaign has been people powered and this isn’t the first time in my life that I have had to fight for what is right. Protecting our six million school children from the same billionaire donors who align themselves with Betsy Devos and Donald Trump is the right thing to do.

I have been so grateful to have you stand besides me throughout this campaign. We’re 4 days out and I need you to stand with me and California’s students and teachers.

Please–donate what you can–and let’s show our opponent that California students are not for sale.

–Tony
