Greetings DN38ers,


We're back from the CA Democratic State Convention where we were inspired by Barbara Boxer, Jerry Brown, Janice Hahn and numerous other great Democratic leaders.  We got Prop 15 endorsed, protection of the Mental Health Services Act (Prop 63) included in the new State Platform and other victories.  I worked all weekend getting about 125+ endorsements for our great 38th AD Candidate, Diana Shaw.


We need to start working for the June Primary.  We have to get the voters informed about Prop 15 and educate them about how awful Prop 14, 16 and 17 are. We need to get people to vote for their candidates for County Committee, AG, Insurance Commission and Lt.Gov.


I hope you will consider volunteering for our Prop 15 efforts. 

As always, lots to do.  Hope to see you at our meeting on 4/28.
