Our DN38 GOTV efforts to elect our endorsed Democratic candidates to the Newhall Water Board and the Newhall & Castaic School Boards will continue this coming weekend.  We need all the volunteers we can get to walk for these good folks.  I believe we can take these seats, thus, moving us closer to "turning the 38th Blue."  We will meet in front of the Newhall Postoffice at 4pm on Saturday 10/10 (new time because it is getting darker earlier now).  And we will meet on Sunday, 10/11 at 4pm at the Jack in the Box in Castaic.  Please plan to walk at least once for these important elections.  They are not glamerous like national elections but their impact on us is tremendous.

Our walking schedule will continue through November 1.  We will be setting up some phone parties closer to the election.  I'll keep you informed.
We will be continuing our Voter Registration  up the 210 on Saturday Nov. 24 with two shifts - 10-12noon and 12noon to 2pm.  Please help us register voters and recrute Democrats to form a club up in that area. 
Please e-mail or call me to volunteer or with questions. 661-755-3772
1. Plan to attend:  Lilly Ledbetter Speaks at CSUN Sunday, October 11, 2009 - 11:00am CSUN Grand Salon, Zelzah at Nordhoff, Northridge, CA 
Lilly Ledbetter worked for nearly two decades at a Goodyear Tire plant in Alabama. She brought a complaint against Goodyear after she discovered that for years she had been paid less than male co-workers with the same job. In 2008, the Supreme Court ruled that employees can only file a wage-discrimination complaint within 180 days of the first discriminatory paycheck.

Over the course of her career, she lost more than $200,000 in salary, and even more in pension and Social Security benefits and the Supreme Court decision left others in her situation with no recourse.

On January 29, 2009, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act restoring the rights of employees who have been the victims of pay discrimination. Lilly is continuing to speak out to remind us that equal pay for equal work is a continuing struggle in the workplace.

$10 suggested contribution, which includes continental breakfast

2.  On Wednesday, October 14 7pm at the Valencia Hill Club House, 4060 Oak Vale Drive
Valencia, California 91355 (right off Tournament)
SCOPE and Community Healthcare Advocates SCV present a
Special Guest Speaker from the American Lung Association.

  • Does your child or favorite senior citizen have asthma?
  • Is your commute stressful?
  • Are you getting enough exercise?

Santa Clarita has some of the worst air quality in the nation. We live in an area designated as a non-attainment zone for ozone and particulate matter (tiny particles of dust that can lodge in the lungs). Both these pollutants can cause breathing problems and lung disease. They are especially harmful to children.

Can changes in the decisions made at City Hall help? The American Lung Association says “Yes!” Energy efficiency and new land use patterns can make a huge difference in our air quality and reduce greenhouse gases, too.

As part of the Lung Association’s mission to prevent lung disease, this statewide organization has developed a “Healthy Land Use Campaign”. The goal of this campaign is to empower local residents to work with City Hall for cleaner air.

So please join us to hear a representative of the American Lung Association speak on the link between our health and local land use decisions. Find out how you can help our community on its way to cleaner air and slow global warming at the same time.


3. The Minority Outreach Symposium will be held on Saturday, 10/17 2-5pm at Cal State Northridge.  Always a great event. ( Leave to get back here for GOTV by 4!)
