Assemblyman David Chiu to Working Families & LiUNA! Union members in AD-17!

As we move into a New Year, I hope that you will join me this Saturday for a very important election. Voters will have the opportunity to cast a ballot for candidates running to represent our district as delegates to the California Democratic Party.
These delegates are responsible for helping to shape the Democratic Party's platform and making critical endorsement decisions. It is essential that we elect strong, principled leaders who represent our shared progressive values as San Franciscans.
That is why I hope that you will join me in voting for the following slate of candidates:
Louise FischerJosh Arce
Gillian Gillett John Baldo
Julissa HernandezJuan Cerda
Rebecca LeeTodd David
Rebecca MillerToye Moses
Jacquelyn OmotaladeComa Te
Nancy RockMike Theriault
Together, they are a diverse group of women and men, representing community organizations, Democratic clubs, labor unions, women's advocacy organizations, small businesses and everyday San Franciscans. 
You can vote between 10am and 12pm this Saturday, January 10 at the African American Art and Culture Complex located at 762 Fulton Street. Any registered Democrat who lives in the Assembly District can stop by and vote.
I appreciate you taking the time to get involved in this process and shape the future of our Democratic Party.
Thank you,

GET OUT THE VOTE! Sat 9:30am/Tues. 4:00pm

There was a time not long ago where San Francisco City Hall simply did not get things done.  David Campos was a big part of that time.  Since then Officials like Mayor Lee, David Chiu and a few others have decided to roll up their sleeves and do what's best for all of San Francisco.  Show your support at the polls on November 4.  VOTE FOR DAVID CHIU because we simply can't afford to go backwards!

IMPORTANT PHONE BANKING - 10:00am October 25, 2014.

Dear Members of the Laborers Political Action Committee,

As the November 4, 2014 election approaches, we are going all out to make sure that our friend, Supervisor David Chiu, wins his election for the 17th Assembly District of California, and that our Labor friendly supervisors, Mark Farrell, Malia Cohen, Scott Wiener and Katy Tang, are re-elected.  We also have very important measures on the ballot this November and need your help to win.

Supervisor David Chiu and our other friends on the Board of Supervisors have stood up for us against constant opposition, and supported the pro-jobs agenda that put our members back to work and put food on the table for our families. We want them to see that we will will stand up for them in return, in the streets, on the phones and at the ballot box.  

On Saturday, October 25, we will be phone banking beginning at 10 AM, at Laborers Local 261's union hall, instead of at 11 Grove Street.  

Our political action organizing program is growing in strength, and we are being joined in these efforts by the Carpenters, Sheet Metal Workers, Ironworkers, Sprinkler Fitters, United Food & Commercial Workers, SEIU-UHW Healthcare Workers, SF Building Trades Council, SFPOA, Firefighters and other unions and businesses who are part of the Alliance/SFSAC coalition.  

October 25 is the day for the Laborers to hit the phones and let other people know that if WE FIGHT, WE WIN!

Laborers Local 261
