“I Don’t See Your Name on the List”
(Editor’s Note: Happy New Year! Below is a small taste of 2014…)
I’m running for Secretary of State to change that, because our democracy is strongest when everyone participates, and the best progress is possible when all voices are heard.
To bring about this change, we first need to introduce existing voters to our campaign — and in a big state like California, that requires a healthy budget.
Will you help make sure we have the funds we need to run a strong campaign?
As a state senator, I championed legislation that expanded voter registration — and now, eligible voters can register while signing up for health care through Covered California.
But I want to do even more as Secretary of State to reach the millions of unregistered voters in our state and bring them into our election process. In my first term, I will work to register at least a million more voters and engage two million California voters who are now opting out of elections.
I also believe strongly that voters have a right to know how campaigns are financed. I pledge to increase transparency, strengthen campaign finance rules, and close the reporting loopholes that cause Californians to lose faith in their government.
But I need your support to do this.
I’m humbled that progressive leaders throughout California have endorsed our campaign: Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, Speaker of the Assembly John Pérez, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, dozens of legislators, and 11 members of the California congressional delegation.
Can I count on your support too?
Thank you so much for your early support of my campaign for Secretary of State. I look forward to campaigning with you in the months ahead.
The good news is that this year, we’ve received over 4,200 online donations to our campaign.
But I don’t see your name on the list.
Will you make a small donation to help us stay on track to reach our year-end goal before our FEC deadline.
With two right-wing opponents on the attack, it’s going to take a huge grassroots effort to win in 2014 and keep Ventura County out of Tea Party hands.
That’s why I need your help before it’s too late. Please, chip in just a small donation.
I’m so grateful to represent California’s 26th district,
