Support Homegrown Assembly Candidate Luis Lopez in the 51st AD
As the rhetoric of the November elections becomes louder and our mailboxes are filling with glossy flyers and brochures, I despair over the cynical belief of some political organizations in this State that they can decide for us who our elected officials will be. Do you share that concern? (Scroll down to the event information set forth below right now!)
Are you willing to organize our low-cost resources to work together to elect a grassroots candidate for State Assembly? Do you reject the apathetic thinking that nothing can be done to counter the money of certain chambers of commerce, public employee unions, political parties and billionaires who will try to mislead our local friends and neighbors into "buying into" their candidate who, until recently, did not even live or vote in this District?
Then we need to raise some funding for our local candidate for State Assembly:
LUIS LOPEZ FOR THE 51ST ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
. . . and equally vital, we need to organize ourselves to use the Internet to counter those glossy flyers and brochures that will finance the other candidate pre-selected by the political machine to become our Assembly member.
I understand that the other candidate may have many positive items on his resume as well. Maybe he is well-spoken most of the time. But really, should that justify overlooking his complete absence from our community for the years leading up to this election? I think not. Let us say "NO" to another "Carpetbag Assemblymember"!
That is why like-minded people in Northeast have banded together to host a fundraiser for Luis AND to have a conversation about how to use our email address books, our Facebook pages, our Twitter account to support a decent, hard-working, long-time leader who is invested in our community. Your email address book is a very powerful tool in this election that makes the most powerful quake with fear.
The other side in this race is counting on you to continue to passively watch television and vote as you are told by the blizzard of glossy flyers and brochures that land in your mailbox. Turn off the TV this Sunday afternoon -- no matter who is playing who on the football field! Let's gather together as friends and neighbors in Northeast and talk about how we can combat this manipulation of the democratic process by interests OUTSIDE our community.
HERE ARE THE DETAILS:

Recession hurt your pocketbook? Understood. No donation, however large or small need deter you from attending this event. Yes, Luis needs basic resources to get his message out to voters and he has raised funds from LOTS of individual donors. Give what you can.
However, your willingness to speak out using your Internet resources may be even more important in this election. Come and talk with us about how online resources can support a Luis Lopez win.
