The 2012 election is shaping up to be of critical importance for the North Coast. If the political pundits and media talking heads are correct, 2012 will be yet another year of political gridlock and economic stagnation.

U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern this week endorsed Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren for the United States Senate.

Rep. Barbara Lee Endorsed

Written by

Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-9) has been one of the most outspoken critics of foreign wars. PDA supports her bill H.R. 780 - Responsible End to the War in Afghanistan Act.

Now, more than ever, it is vital to elect candidates who exemplify the values for which Democracy for America (DFA) stands: Community, Security and Liberty. That is why DFA-Marin is proud to endorse Norman Solomon for Congress from the 2nd Congressional District.

When to Say "No"; Make that "Hell No!"

Mitt Romney did not invent predatory capitalism.  It’s been around for a while.

 

Predatory capitalism was already alive and well in 1978, in Cleveland.  That was when the One Percent who controlled the banks, and pretty much everything else of value, decided that they wanted to steal the local power company from the people of Cleveland.

Washington, D.C.– Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) issued the following statement in response to the President’s State of the Union address:


When the president addresses the economy in the State of the Union, he needs to offer more than optimism, and I think he will. The conservative House majority is going to reject anything he offers sight unseen – that’s no secret – but that’s no reason for the president not to make a strong case to the country that he understands the problem and has a solution mapped out.

Norman Solomon’s campaign for Congress scored a major victory last weekend when opponent Jared Huffman failed to win the endorsement from California Democratic Party delegates, who cast votes from all over the new congressional district that stretches from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Oregon border.

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
