We have an exciting update this week – President Obama announces his support for the John Garamendi campaign and volunteers!

“Everybody has got to go out there and work for John.â€?

President Barack Obama on October 15th, 2009

The President’s bold call to action comes at a perfect time, as we are announcing our Get Out The Vote trainings. These final days of the campaign, and Election Day itself, are quite different than any other phase of our campaign, and we need the maximum number of volunteers on board. Can you help on November 3rd? Try and make it to one of our trainings – they’re only one hour long and lunch is included!

Additionally, the schedule for the Walnut Creek Headquarters, Fairfield office, and Livermore has changed. Please see the schedule below, and call ahead or stop by whenever you have time. Votes are certainly rolling in, and we all need to ensure that John’s victory sends a strong message about the values and support of the this Congressional District.

Every vote is important; we need your help to identify our supporters and turn them out to the polls on November 3rd! Get Out The Vote Trainings:
