Alan Grayson Wins PDA National Endorsement

Written by  Mike Fox | PDA National Team

In typical "let's get it done" fashion, PDA members on the ground in Florida rallied to insure that Alan Grayson would be considered for national endorsement.  In record time they formed a functioning local chapter and held the vote, allowing Florida state wide to likewise push forward in record time -- and via unanimous vote -- to recommend Alan for national consideration.

On the largest conference call we've ever had in PDA's history, Alan wowed the attendees with not only his positions on the issues and grasp of grassroots campaigning, but also with stories of his upbringing that included him being a sick child who regularly needed treatments, and if it weren't for his two union member parents who had health care, he doesn't know what would have happened.
From prosecuting war profiteers, to getting a bill passed to audit the fed, to calling for single payer healthcare for all, Alan Grayson is the consummate Healthcare Not Warfare, 99% candidate.  
And proof of this?  He was designated "Target #1" in 2010, as over $5million of 1% money flowed into his district in the form of Swift Boat ads.  As a result, Alan lost his seat in the 2010 tsunami.
But in typical Grayson fashion, he didn't let that stop him.  He got knocked down in 2010, but most certainly not out.  He's back with even more fire in his belly, and more love in his heart for his community than ever before.
And we're looking forward to putting him back to work for us in Washington.

Join "Countdown to Coverage" Share TPP with your Daily Newspaper

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

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.


Step 1 is to send an Op-Ed to your Daily Newspaper.

Sign the Petition - Sen. Sanders Run as a Democrat in 2016


Sign the TPP Fast Track Petitions Petition - Congress Don't Renew Fast Track

Pulic Citizen Petition - Congress Must Reject Fast Track Authority Petition - Stop the Trans Pacific Partnership

CREDO Petition - Stop the Massive Corporate Power Grab


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.
