Final 2 Weekends...



As we approach the final 2 weekends of this campaign it is difficult to fathom what has happened and what dominates the news. Bombs? An attempt at mass assassination? How do we assimilate this? We all know what we think. That the hateful rhetoric of this president has brought about this madness. All I can say is, it is more important than ever to keep up our activism, stay out there, stick with our candidates, keep walking, keep calling, keep giving, keep burying crystals if that works....do what you do so that on Tuesday,
´╗┐November 6, we have done all that we can to turn the Congress BLUE!

And we look forward to seeing you at our


post-Election meeting
Tuesday, November 13 at 6:30 pm.
for relaxation, hopeful celebration,
´╗┐talking and winding down
Place to be announced.

(NOTE: If you have a home that can hold 80-100 people and would like to host more of a party than a meeting, please contact me by responding to this email.)

DON'T STOP CANVASSING AND WORKING FOR OUR CANDIDATES!

Two quick Things....

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

Just two quick things before our meeting tomorrow night....

First,I am sending you the League of Women Voters Voter Guide (Voters Edge) to download on your phone so that you can follow it at our meeting.
https://votersedge.org/ca

Second, PLEASE BRING GOODIES! Since this is our last meeting before the election, please consider bringing something that you would like to share with the group! Sweets, savory, fruit or whatever sounds good to you. (Just no shellfish, meat or nuts please.)

Thanks, and see you tomorrow night!

Lita

Meeting Next Week!



Our next meeting is much sooner than you think...in fact, it's next week! We will be reviewing our ballots with a representative from the League of Women Voters as well taking input from each other. Be sure to bring your sample ballots. We will also be talking about the races, our volunteering and just generally schmoozing at our last meeting before the election!

We have completed our donations to our local Congressional Candidates Mike Levin, Katie Porter and Harley Rouda. We handed their representatives checks for $1,000 each, completing their $5,000 donation (each) and "maxing out" to them this campaign cycle. We are extremely proud to have donated to these candidates. HOWEVER, OUR WORK IS NOT DONE.



Our Political Research Committee has met and there are A DOZEN OTHER RACES in California and across the country where we would like to give -- and where we can make a difference! Having watched the extremely upsetting Kavanaugh hearings, it is imperative, now more than ever, that we not only win the House of Representatives, but that we win the Senate as well.

PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK AND MAKE A DONATION TO DEMOCPAC NOW!!! YOUR MONEY IS NEEDED AND WILL BE PUT TO GOOD USE. PLEASE HELP US TO SEND MONEY TO HOUSE AND SENATE CANDIDATES IN TIGHT RACES BECAUSE WE KNOW WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!
https://www.efundraisingconnections.com/c/DEMOCPAC/

Please send any amount, whatever you can, the more the better. There is little time left. And then, after November 6, the asks will stop. And hopefully, we will have Democrats running the House and the Senate and we all can breathe a little better.

Thank you for all the help you have given already and for responding to these last requests.
