ANNOUNCEMENTS
* Historic Victory for Transparency as California DISCLOSE ACT, AB 1648, Passes Assembly Bill provides true transparency and disclosure for political ads and is endorsed by over 300 organizations and leaders. ____________________________ *** Important Recommendation *** "VOTE  "NO on 32" Prop 32 is a deceptive measure that would not allow Union Dues to be used for political campaigns! ____________________________ ____________________________ *Important ***************
from
Jess Durfee Chair, SDCDP & DNC  Member : *Every San Diego Democrat should see this ... We crunched the numbers after the primary election to see whether all our work talking to voters made a difference. The results were even better than I expected.  About 48% of the voters targeted by our County Democratic Party turned out (compared to the countywide average of 37%). But those successfully contacted by our volunteers voted at a rate of 61%, and those we identified as supporters had an even higher 65% turnout! Our Party's greatest strength is in the field. We know that the GO Team -- our voter outreach program -- works. But we need additional resources now to fully implement our plan.  Please donate whatever you can to help us maximize turnout for our Democratic team of candidates throughout the county. Our "Battleground San Diego" program is ambitious. This month we're opening three new campaign offices for phonebanking and canvassing. We're hiring organizers to recruit and coordinate an army of volunteers. We're designing doorhangers and mailers to distribute in hundreds of precincts.  But all this costs money ... so your contribution of $5, $25, $50 or more means we can turn out that many more voters. Just go to this site...  to make a difference: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/sdvictory Last month I set out to find 100 grassroots donors to launch Battleground San Diego. As I write this, we're about a third of the way there. Will you lend your support today to help us reach our goal?   With gratitude,  Jess Durfee Chair, San Diego County Democratic Party Member, Democratic National Committee ____________________________
*IMPORTANT* Recommendation for Judge by our friend Judge Bob Longstreth  ~ ROBERT AMADOR FOR SUPERIOR COURT JUDGE  ~   Office 25  ~ He has been a Deputy District Attorney almost 30 years, with over 100 jury trials including death penalty cases.  He has held various supervisory positions in the D.A.'s office and has received too many awards to list.  He has been married for over 34 years and he and Nancy have raised four children, two of which were his foster children (and one of which has tried cases in front of me.)  Judge Robert Longstreth has known Bob since he coached Daniel in Tecolote Pony League about 10 years ago.   Bob has received the highest rating from the County Bar:  Well Qualified. His opponent, who has run unsuccessfully before, was again found to be Lacking Qualifications. Bob is endorsed by over 90 Superior Court judges, as well as Mayor Sanders, Sheriff Gore, District Attorney Dumanis and Public Defender Coker, City Attorney Goldsmith, and many other elected officials and civic leaders from both sides of the  aisle. If you would like more information about Bob: website at www.amadorforjudge.com
***GEEZ! We need to make sure that Judge Kreep does not have company. Bob's opponent is just about as extreme, as well as unqualified.  This one matters! Carol Changus, San Diego DFA, Organizer!!! ***

Following the film is a panel discussion with local groups on how to continue the efforts against Free Trade Agreements (old and new) in our bordering communities. Maquilapolis Centro Cultural de la Raza Balboa Park, San Diego http://www.centrocult... "To create MAQUILAPOLIS, the filmmakers brought together factory workers in Tijuana and community organizations in Mexico and the U.S. to collaborate on a film that depicts globalization through the eyes of the women who live on its leading edge. The factory workers who appear in the film have been involved in every stage of production, from planning to shooting, from scripting to outreach. This collaborative process breaks with the traditional documentary practice of dropping into a location, shooting and leaving with the "goods," which would only repeat the pattern of the maquiladora itself. The process embraces subjectivity as a value and a goal. It merges artmaking with community development to ensure that the film's voice will be truly that of its subjects." http://www.maquilapol...Facebook event https://www.facebook....

***THUR SEPT 27 at " PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S  ~ 21st ANNUAL Stand Down ACTION FUND PARTY*  with  STATE SENATOR CHRISTINE KEHOE in La Jolla" Elections don’t get more critical than this. In fact, the upcoming local and national elections are more important to the Future of Planned Parenthood than any other election in recent history. This is our best opportunity to raise funds as we enter the last leg of the 2012 election year. With longtime Planned Parenthood Champion Senator Christine Kehoe as our featured speaker, we’re in for an inspirational and energizing evening. We hope you’ll join us – we need every ounce of support we can get to ensure no one will “get rid of” Planned Parenthood.... Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that.” - Mitt Romney BUY TICKETS TODAY! From local races to the battle for the presidency, support for Planned Parenthood and the reproductive health services it provides have become deciding factors. Many candidates, including Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, have publicly stated they intend to eliminate all funding for Planned Parenthood, even though most Americans believe providing reproductive health care is vital for our country’s future and should remain nonpartisan. In fact, not only has 1 in 5 American women sought reproductive health care from Planned Parenthood at least once in her lifetime, 69% of Americans oppose cutting federal government funding to Planned Parenthood. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund of the Pacific Southwest will commit its resources to elect candidates who will preserve the right to reproductive health care. To contribute to the event at the Honorary Committee level – $1,000 or more – or to purchase individual tickets online, please visit www.ppactionca.org/standnow today!

***TUES OCT 16 at 9:30AM  Americans for Save Access's challenge to the government's denial of a rescheduling petition has been granted a hearing by the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Oral arguments in Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration, scheduled for October 16 at 9:30am, will be the first opportunity in decades for a federal court to hear the full scope of scientific evidence on the therapeutic applications of cannabis. ASA had filed suit to force government action on the petition, setting the stage for next October's court hearing. The DEA is the final arbiter on petitions to reclassify controlled substances, but other agencies are also involved in the review process.
