Endorsed by the Democratic Party, Rachel Radell-Harris is running for Auburn City Council. For more information about Rachel, and to donate to her campaign, please visit www.RachelForAuburn.com, or email Rachel@RachelForAuburn.com
The Placer County Democratic Party has endorsed Rachel Radell-Harris for Auburn City Council. Raised in Auburn, Radell-Harris has returned to raise her family here and wants to contribute to Auburn’s bright future as an Auburn City Councilwoman.
Here’s what one AADC member, Scott Johnson has to say:
I’m supporting Rachel Radell-Harris for Auburn City Council. All politics are local and you can’t get more local than city council. I first heard Rachel testify before the council when we filled the council chambers in support of a resolution calling for Auburn to adopt policies that would result in city operations to be powered by 100% renewable energy sources by 2050. The council failed to adopt that resolution even though CA law mandates 100% renewable by that date. Rachel stepped up and has shown me that she has the energy literacy to guide Auburn towards a bright future that does not contribute to the climate crisis. Please support Rachel’s campaign. She needs to raise several thousand dollars by the end of August for mailers and signs. For our planet…
