Guest commentary, by Afton Tuveson, EDC resident & local volunteer

Sometimes we get too focused on what’s happening in Washington, D.C. and forget to pay attention to our own backyard. Left unchecked, the political nightmare we are currently experiencing will continue to spill over that Republican dam of deceit and permeate every state and local election this November…unless we do something about it now.

With everything we care about on the line, everyone needs to get up and GET INVOLVED in what many consider to be the most important mid-term election in our country’s history.  The Republican game plan for this fall’s election is to implement Trump’s philosophy in every elected office across the state, and that will philosophically alter our lives for decades to come.  We can’t let that happen.

Unfortunately, we already know what it’s like to have a yes-man in Congress. Tom McClintock comfortably fits in Trump’s pocket on every single issue that affects our lives here in the 4th District.  We have a congressman who doesn’t care about the issues we have to face here on a day-to-day basis; he doesn’t even live here!

It’s imperative we PARTICIPATE in this upcoming election starting now. We have to stop wringing our hands and get focused on what we can do in the few remaining months before the November election.  If a single one of us sits out this election on any level between now and November 6th, the results could be catastrophic for all of us for generations to come.

If you are not sure how to help, stop by or phone our local El Dorado County Democratic headquarters  (916-312-3008, 4540 Post Street, Suite 230, El Dorado Hills) and find out what is needed  (You can even be assigned tasks to do from your own home).

Here’s a short list of constructive action steps that you can take right now: 

  • California Away (CalAway):  This project is focused on registered Democrats who ‘forgot’ to vote in the last midterm. You have a quick, but meaningful conversation with them and have them sign a postcard pledging to vote so we can return it as a reminder to vote in November. Talking with voters is the single most effective way to encourage folks to vote.  CalAway provides training at each event along with talking points to help volunteer canvassers with these conversations.  (See CalAway link below to sign-up or contact [email protected])
  • Join the Democratic Women of El Dorado County:  Every Thursday, 5:00- 8:00pm come in for phone banking and postcard writing.  Where:  EDC Democratic Headquarters, 4540 Post Street, Suite 230, El Dorado Hills.  Drop-in anytime from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.  Bring a phone, friend, and a smile. Contact[email protected]
  • Join El Dorado #TeamMorse for our weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) phone banking and canvass! Sign up to volunteer for a shift from 9AM-12PM, 12-3PM or 3-6PM! Contact Nicole Demchishin at [email protected] to RSVP and with any questions you have. Bring a phone, a friend, and a smile. We look forward to hitting the pavement with you this weekend!  (For more information see the Team Morse phone bank and canvass link below)

Above all, get family members and friends to register to VOTE and support our local candidates:

It’s time to take back control of our country and our future, and that journey has to begin on a local level.

Barack Obama said, “Trump is racing to roll back decades of progress.” That’s why we need you now.

Obama also said: “VOTE.  PARTICIPATE.  GET INVOLVED.”  You can do that!

Whether it’s national elections, or local, our legacy is up to you.
