Redistricting

 

To keep Mendocino County in Congressional District 2 with Jared Huffman as our Congressional Representative, here is a sample letter to send to the California Redistricting Commission, or write your own:

CA Citizens Redistricting Commission

721 Capital Mall, Suite 260

Sacramento, CA 95814

 

Dear Commissioners:

I am writing to you to support continuing the current congressional district boundaries of the current 2nd Congressional District as much as feasible. The North Coast counties in the 2nd district have a distinct community of interest that make drawing the district vertically along the coast the most coherent representation district.

While the coast itself is the largest unifying land feature, there are also common economic activities such as the maritime, tourism, forestry industries, and cannabis and vineyard-dominated agriculture.  There are also common watersheds, common infrastructure and common transportation corridors such as US 1 and CA 101.  Mendocino County has far more in common with its northern and southern neighbors, Humboldt and Sonoma counties than with its eastern neighbor, Lake County.

I urge you to consider these strong indicators of communality as you revise the map of California’s congressional districts.

Stop the Republican Recall

The Coast Dems recently adopted this Resolution to Stop the Republican Recall of Governor Newsom.  There is an active texting campaign that you can join here.  There will be more opportunities to participate in this all-hands-on-deck push coming soon.

STOP THE REPUBLICAN RECALL OF GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM

 

Whereas, the effort to recall Governor Newsom is a partisan power grab spearheaded by Donald Trump’s National Republican Party, the California Republican Party, and top Trump donors advocating to overturn fair elections, having already worked to delegitimize the American electoral process; and frivolously using California taxpayer dollars to fund this partisan ploy to derail the progress Governor Newsom has made to save lives, provide a safety net for struggling Californians as we are making significant strides returning our  lives to normal; and

 

Whereas, the pro-recall ranks are filled with a coalition of anti-vaxxers, Q-Anon conspiracy theorists, and militia groups whose aim is to disrupt and distract from California’s progress on COVID-19 recovery, equitable mass vaccinations, and school reopenings while their leaders disseminate anti-vaccination and anti-immigration propaganda on social media sites, actively work against public interest and advocate for the microchipping of immigrants, and

 

Whereas, by uniting,  Democrats will prevent Trump’s Republican Party from taking over the California government and will stand united against any candidate who seeks the office and helps Republicans succeed.

 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the Coast Democratic Club of Mendocino County opposes the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom.
