California Procrastinators – Vote Now

And make sure every CA friend, relative and acquaintance you know has voted.

Every single one.

  • Return your vote-by-mail ballot by mail with prepaid postage as long as it’s postmarked by September 14, 2021 or in-person to a secure ballot drop box, to a voting location or your county elections office by 8:00 p.m. on September 14, 2021.
  • In-person voting locations will offer voter registration, replacement ballots, accessible voting machines, and language assistance to those who need it.

2021 – Stop the Republican Recall

Let’s Just Get This Done!

Yes, this recall nonsense is aggravating and wasteful, but it’s not trivial and needs to be beaten down by the majority of California voters who know better. There are plenty of us, but we need to vote without fail. Ballots will be arriving this week.

Here’s what to do:
Mark, sign & seal your ballot right away. Ballots arrive this week; don’t procrastinate.
Vote “NO” on Question #1. That’s it. Don’t even engage with Question #2. If we defeat the recall, the rest is a pointless distraction.

Mail it in or drop it off. If you don’t trust the U.S. Mail, there are several drop-off locations, including the County Adm. Bldg. on Anacapa St., County Elections at 4440-A Calle Real, the Eastside Public Library at 1102 Montecito St., San Andres Hardware at 635 Micheltorena St., the Goleta Valley Community Center on Hollister, Goleta City Hall at 130 Cremona Dr., and the Carpinteria City Hall.
There are Election Day (Sept. 14) polling places, but everyone will receive a mail-in ballot. Why wait?

If you have friends or family who need persuading or are even considering not voting, remind them about: Gov. Newsom’s careful, data-based leadership throughout the pandemic, California’s current financial stability, and our state’s strategic investments in housing, infrastructure, public education, and climate change.
Or scare them with the opponents’ positions: Reported recently in the Orange County Register.


Remind Your Neighbors Where You Stand!
Free anti-Recall yard signs are now available at party HQ at 123 E. Carrillo St. Organizing Director Spencer Brandt is often at his desk there, but predictably you will find DSC volunteers to help you Wednesdays thru Fridays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Take one for a friend in a different part of town! And while you’re there, ask about how you can join the weekend walks or call voters from home.

”  … You’re leading the Department of Labor at a major inflection point for the country, with people getting back to work after so many lost jobs during the pandemic — and with the way we work potentially reshaped by the experience. What do you see as the opportunities or as your central mandate in this moment?

This is such a huge opportunity to do things right this time. Whatever the number on the infrastructure plan, it can be transformative for working people. So I view it as an opportunity for us to tackle the toughest issues that, quite honestly, maybe we haven’t tackled directly head-on as an administration. To tackle inequity in the workplace. To tackle wage disparity between women and men. To tackle racial inequities in the workplace and create better pathways.

I’m still kind of figuring out: How much I can push and where I can push and how much we can move forward? The beauty is that I have a president and a vice president who really believe in the mission of the Department of Labor. We have this unique opportunity in front of us to make some major changes in the workforce and to come back stronger. I think you get that opportunity once in a political career or once in a generation. And this is the time.  ”     from the Washington Post, August 31, 2021
