My issue was not listed. So, I’ll just use climate change as my “issue” though my “story” is more generalized.
I’ve been a Democrat since before I could vote. I hung door knob hangers for Bobby Kennedy in my hometown of Wallingford, CT back in 1968. I’ve been an OFA Fellow and helped run the GOTV efforts in Sacramento where I was the Staging Location Director for the more than 500 people who made calls during 2012 GOTV.
Recently, I’ve been involved in helping elect a committed environmentalist to the board of our local municipal utility, SMUD. He won with 70% of the vote.
I’m committed to equality, liberty, and love for all.
I live in Sacramento, CA where I’m retired after 25 years as a public information officer for the California Energy Commission. My background in media, public relations and organizing are at Rebuild The Hope’s disposal.
I live in a very open and fair state. But we have many fellow Californians who are still attracted to the “dark side.” We must reach out to get Democratic voters to the polls in Sierra foothill counties. And we must try to get people (Republicans, Independents, etc.) to change their political leanings and become more progressive. If we don’t we risk alienating a good portion of our state’s population.
I’m hoping that Rebuild the Hope will do just that; bring that HOPE that we shared during the eight years of President Obama to the rest of our country and likewise to the world. While the etymology of the word “hope” comes from a religious basis, we must have confidence for the future based on our shared Constitutional values. I will work toward a peaceful retaking of Congress in 2018 and the Presidency in 2020.
