09/20/2017 - Rep. Tom McClintock Announces Town Hall Meeting in Angels Camp on September 20th
Angels Camp, CA...Rep. Tom McClintock Announces Town Hall Meeting in Angels Camp. Town Hall Meeting in Angels Camp, Wednesday, September 20, 2017. 6:00 P.M. Bret Harte High School Gym 364 Murphys Grade Road Angels Camp, 95222

09/19/2017 - Mother Lode Democratic Congressional Candidate Forum on September 19th
Angels Camp, CA...Four Democrats seeking to retire and replace Congressional District 04’s incumbent GOP Representative will make their case at a Congressional Candidate Forum hosted by the Calaveras County Democrats on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Bret Harte High School in Angels Camp. “The next election is vital to the health, welfare and prosperity of CD-04 and Calaveras County,” said Laura Lowell, chair of Calaveras County Democrats.


“Status quo is no longer an option when it comes to water, agriculture, rural healthcare, jobs and other issues that directly affect our lives in Calaveras.” The event will include introductions, a panel discussion, and time for attendees to meet and talk personally with the contenders, all of whom live full-time in CD-04.

The candidates are:

* Regina Bateson, a political scientist who joined the State Department after 9/11
as a foreign service officer in South America (www.bateson4congress.com).

* Roza Calderon, a geoscientist expert in agricultural land management who
arrived in the U.S. as a 2-year-old political refugee (www.electroza.org).

* Jessica Morse, a security strategist for 10 years with the State Department and
USAID who has hiked the length of CD-04 (www.morse4congress.com).

* Rochelle Wilcox, an appeals lawyer raised by a single mother whose tight budget
included food stamps, school lunches, and public school (www.rochelle2018.com).

“Voters in CD-04 are fortunate to have capable, approachable candidates willing to
fight for our district,” Lowell said. “Our farmers are directly affected by changing
climate, the impact on water resources, extreme heat, and other vital issues, yet in
Congress we see only votes against rural healthcare. It’s unacceptable.”

CD-04’s five-term Rep. Tom McClintock has passed three bills in 9 years (two to
rename post offices) and drew national attention this year when he abruptly left a
town hall meeting as constituents objected in loud voices to his positions including
repealing healthcare and building a Mexican border wall.

The district is immense, made up of six rural counties and parts of four more, and
is home to 722,313 people, ranches, farms, vineyards, gold rush towns, four
glorious national parks, forests, lakes and tall mountains.

California CD-04 Congressional Candidate Forum, Tues., Sept. 19, 6:30 – 8:30
p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room, Bret Harte High School, 364 Murphys Grade
Road, Angels Camp (at the corner of Highway 4 and Murphys Grade Road).

07/23/2017 - Meet and Greet California Governor Candidate Delaine Eastin and Lieutenant Governor Candidate Eleni
Murphys, CA...Delaine Eastin, Candidate for California Governor and Eleni Kounalakis, Candidate for California Lieutenant Governor Will be at Hovey Winery, 350 Main Street, Murphys, California at 4:00 pm. About Delaine Eastin: Throughout her career, Delaine Eastin has been a leader who has never been afraid to stand up to bullies on behalf of what is right for the future of our state and our children. Delaine took on the tobacco industry and helped pass two propositions: one educates children on the dangers of smoking, and the second created and funds First 5 California, the critical program that focuses on child development from ages zero to five. As State Superintendent, Delaine joined the successful lawsuit against Governor Wilson’s Proposition 187, that onerous legislation that tried to make police, health care professionals and our teachers de facto immigration agents. During her tenure as Superintendent, Delaine reduced class sizes in grades K-3, and California went from 47th in the nation in funding, to 27th. Sadly, we now rank in the bottom 10 again. As State Superintendent, Delaine Eastin fought tirelessly for the children of California…and she won many battles. Now she is ready to take this fight into the Governor’s office.


About Eleni Kounalakis

Eleni Kounalakis, Candidate for California Lieutenant Governor, is the proud daughter o‎f an immigrant father who used hard work and education to realize the American Dream. She's a wife and mother of two teenage sons. Appointed by President Obama, she was the first Greek American woman Ambassador in US history. Eleni is a successful businesswoman and a passionate advocate for early childhood education‎. She'll never back down in the fight to strengthen our economy and provide more opportunities for working families. She'll fight for affordable college education and health care for all and stand up for the rights of immigrants and DREAMers.

Learn more about Delaine and Eleni at this event.
