We did it! Our friend Eileen Higgins came in first in the County Commission election tonight. No one expected us to even make the runoff, but together we knocked on over 20,000 doors and made over 15,000 phone calls. This is how we win. Now, we head into a June 19 runoff election against Republican Zoraida Barreiro. And there is no time to waste! Vote by mail ballots get mailed out next week and early voting starts June 9.
Here's how you can help:
- Use our new tool Voter Circle to find contacts who live in the district to remind them to vote.
- Volunteer! Sign-up for a shift right now.
- Invest in this race! Contribute $20, $50, or $100 right now to help fund our get-out-the-vote efforts
It's time to put another strong progressive voice on the County Commission. As we've seen over the last few years, who we elect to local office matters! Whether it's sea level rise, immigrants rights, investing in transit, or investing in working families, we need another champion on the County Commission.
