The Press Democrat
Endorses Mayor David Glass
"There’s no disputing his knowledge of municipal affairs and his devotion to the community. His background in finance, particularly bond financing, also will serve the city well in the coming days, particularly if Measure Q succeeds. But Glass rightly opposes Q, which ostensibly is a funding mechanism for constructing the long-awaited Rainer crosstown connector. Glass is right when he says “a blank check is not the answer.” Read Entire Article!
Mike Thompson with Petaluma Mayor David Glass
I am honored and excited that the following organizations have endorsed my reelection: The Democratic Party Central Committee of Sonoma County, The Sierra Club, Sonoma County Conservation Action, Coalition for a Better Sonoma County, The North Bay Labor Council, The Sonoma County Stonewall Democrats, Petaluma Tomorrow, and the Brady Campaign.
In addition to these organizations individual endorsers include California State Senator Lois Wolk, retired Sonoma County Superintendent of Public Education Dr. Carl Wong, Congressman Mike Thompson, retired Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, and State Senator Noreen Evans .
For all of us, 2014 is an important election year -- when some key races will be decided, ranging from members of Congress to state legislators and local officeholders. Following the disappointing state-wide voter turn-out in the California June Primary election, it’s especially important that we get out the vote this November.
After careful assessments, the Coalition for Grassroots Progress has endorsed candidates in northern California races and recommended positions on several state-wide ballot initiatives.
We urge you to visit these candidates’ websites and consider providing support.
Sonoma County Supervisor, 4th District:
Petaluma City Council:
Santa Rosa School Board:
Mendocino County Supervisor, 3rd District:
Marin Water District Board:
Eureka City Council:
Most of these candidates can also be found on Facebook.
We’ve also endorsed several candidates in Congressional and US Senate races. Click here for information on those races.
The most effective way to have influence on elections is to organize at the precinct level. It’s been shown time and again that people are more likely to respond to their neighbors than to mass advertising. But we can only make a grassroots difference when we actually do the work of organizing on this very most basic political level.
And this is where you can make a big difference -- by helping the Coalition for Grassroots Progress’s precinct teams.
Help CGP precinct teams reach voters where and how it counts the most: at the door and by their neighbor.
* A donation of $30 will help us reach voters in an average-size precinct in the North Bay.
* A $60 contribution will help the voters in two precincts hear about strong, progressive candidates in important races.
* Just $5 will go a long way in augmenting other donations to reach our shared goals.
Will you support our grassroots organizing for progressive candidates and issues?
