A Message From Our President Terry Rodriguez, October, 2023
Everything’s Coming up Blue Roses 2023 – 2024
Vacation time summer is over, and now we’re into fall. As we go through the winter months, spring will heat up, and Blue Roses will bloom. Preparations for the upcoming election season 2024 are underway, and campaigning by our Democratic candidates is beginning. The California Democratic Party (CADEM) holds its Endorsement Convention during the weekend of November 17th through the 19th. Convention delegates will determine the candidates we will back.
CANDIDATE WATCH – SEPTEMBER 2023 – SENATE RACES
By Charlie Riley
Voting for a US Senator from California used to be so much easier. This year, even the primary offers too many amazing choices for Democrats.
To be clear, the upcoming race for the next California US Senator looks like a win by a Democrat, at least according to the pundits. The race ratings from the three outlets that normally track and report on elections, The Cook Political Report, Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales, and Larry J. Sabato’s Crystal Ball all show a win for the Dems. Their analysis, to paraphrase, all state that one party has a clear edge (the Democrats), and the race is not competitive. A fun fact also being, if memory serves me right, a Republican has not won a California US Senate race since 1988.
Regardless, with not even 7 months until the primary election, we have multiple amazing Democrats running. We each just need to figure out who gets our vote. Today I will focus on the top four contenders.
WE NEED NEVA PARKER
By Charlie Riley
We Need Neva Parker for California Assembly District 5
Neva’s campaign has started fund raising. They are holding house parties and other events but need our support both with money, critical for her candidacy, and very soon with canvasing and phone banking.
You can visit Neva’s website and donate here: Neva Parker For Assembly District 5
Joe Patterson, the Republican Incumbent, has strong backing from the Republicans and their PACs. He has already received large donations from as far away as New York, Texas, and Washington, DC. So far Patterson has raised $199,829.79 in 110 contributions for the 2024 election.

OUR PARTNER: THE ALLIANCE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL LEADERSHIP
The Alliance for Environmental Leadership (AEL) brings together like-minded organizations and citizens to defend natural ecosystems, to organize for civic action, and to advocate for Smart Growth because it serves all community members and protects the environment that sustains us. Smart Growth reduces dependence on cars in towns and cities. Unless this dependence falls drastically, our transition to lithium battery-powered electric vehicles will deepen local and global environmental and social inequities linked to high-cost housing and mining. It may even jeopardize the 1.5c global heating target. Please click here to read the rest of this article.
