2. Ryan Hurd, Our Executive Director, SDCDP ([address removed]) TODAY! ***Friday: November 2, 11:00 a.m. Meet California's "First Dog" He's a celebrity in the State Capitol. He's cuter than your average politician. And he's hitting the campaign trail in San Diego to support Proposition 30. You're invited to our Democratic Unity office tomorrow to make get-out-the-vote phone calls and meet California's "First Dog," Sutter. Governor Jerry Brown has been the leading proponent of Prop. 30, which would prevent deep cuts to education in California. Polls show that voters are evenly split on the measure, so its passage will depend on our volunteer efforts in the next five days. While Sutter Brown isn't eligible to vote, the friendly Welsh corgi has been a big cheerleader for the Governor's plan throughout the state. Please join us to meet him and make phone calls to local voters: WHEN: Friday, November 2, 11:00 a.m. WHERE: Democratic Unity Office, 8322 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., #202 Please reply to this email or call (858)[masked] to let us know you're coming. And feel free to invite friends and family and spread the word through your Facebook and Twitter pages. We're in the tail end of this election now, so thanks for your support! Truly, Ryan Hurd Executive Director San Diego County Democratic Party P.S.: To keep our focus on the making calls for Prop. 30, we do ask that you leave your cherished canine companions at home for this event.

Let's win elections nationwide! ★ We can make a difference in Election outcomes nationwide! ★ Please sign up for call-shifts to get out the vote for Dems! ◊ These calls work -- and research proves it. Putting volunteers directly in touch with voters is one of the two most powerful ways to earn support and get voters to the polls. (The other is knocking doors.) It's more powerful than direct mail, paid phone calls, and any sort of paid advertisement that Republicans can run. We can win this election with people power -- and we will win it if you make calls with us. Make calls to voters this weekend. Can't make calls? Contribute $6 to the DFA GOTV Fund. President Obama, Majority Leader Reid and Speaker Pelosi or President Romney, Majority Leader McConnell and Speaker Boehner -- you have the power to make the difference in this election. Thank you for everything you do. -Jim Jim Dean, Chair Democracy for America www. Go to: http://democracyforamerica.com/activities/826?akid=2482.70538.N4yKJ5&rd=1&t=1

***SUN NOV 4 at 10:00AM ★ JOHN LEE EVANS, Candidate for School Board ~ DOING A FINAL LIT DROP ON SUNDAY in CLAIREMONT ★ We're doing a final lit drop push on Sunday in Clairemont. Bring a friend/relative/colleague to make the walk fun and fast. Maybe some fellow Unitarians would like to join you/us. Zack, our precinct guru, makes it easy as essentially the walk goes up one street and down the other. All designated houses are 'friendlies' meaning they're Dems who consistently vote the ticket. In this race, name recognition is a huge factor and just knowing that JLE is a Democrat often encourages people to vote for school board rather than leaving the slot blank. We're meeting at Starbucks (4227 Genesee) at 10 a.m. on Sunday. I'll even treat you to your favorite drink. How can you turn that down? Let me know. Carol Carol A.

Filner has a solid record of fighting for the working families, seniors, veterans and small business owners that make up his district. He has worked to meet the challenges of his district, including providing affordable healthcare for border communities and all Americans. Filner’s experience representing a border community has given him significant insight on the incredible potential of San Diego. He recognizes that the city is at a crossroads, and to move forward we must do things and tackle problems that might be difficult.
Bob Filner is running for Mayor because he has an outsider’s view and approach combined with an insider’s understanding of the problems and the solutions. .

*******VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM ANNE HOIBERG ********
★ Women: Vote for President Barack Obama! Anne Hoiberg ★
★ For the sake of all girls and women, vote for President Barack Obama. ★
The one issue widening the wedge between Democrats and Republicans in this presidential election is that of women’s rights. As the gap expands, we are subjected to increasingly more ignorant remarks about rape and abortion, the funding of contraception, and the need for special counseling and testing for pregnant girls and women weighing whether or not to have an abortion. Also divisive is the blocking of legislation addressing violence against women as well as equal pay, which fosters a virulent form of sexism in this country. On the basis of these current indicators, we can only predict that the situation for women would worsen under a Romney Administration.
Would an elected Mitt Romney uphold our democratic values of equality and inclusivity or would we expect a further erosion of women’s rights and opportunities? Particularly problematic for women, especially those of us who are single, lesbian, widowed, or divorced, is our expected role in the U.S. as spelled out by the 2012 Republican Party Platform: “The institution of marriage is the foundation of civil society. Its success as an institution will determine our success as a nation. . . . we believe that marriage, the union of one man and one woman must be upheld as the national standard, a goal to stand for, encourage, and promote through laws governing marriage.”
Another alarming belief centers on the role of women in the Mormon faith. Added to the Republican’s national standard promoting marriage is the Mormon tenet that the most important goal for a girl is "to marry the right person, in the right place, by the right authority." Mormon girls also must be chaste until marriage, thereby making them worth marrying. Being married and bearing many children are the noblest of endeavors for girls. Of all U.S. states, Utah has the highest percentage of children less than 18 years of age, 31.5%. Because Utahan girls marry young, the lowest median age in the country, and do not complete a college education, the wage gap in Utah is the largest in the nation, with women earning 55 cents for every dollar a man makes (American Community Survey in Slate.com).
Although Mormon marriages are sealed in heaven to last an eternity, divorces do occur, but obtaining a church divorce is a complicated pursuit. After appealing to male church authorities, a couple may be granted a church divorce, which would break the sealed celestial marriage and free the couple. The LDS Church and the Mormon family are patriarchal and hierarchal institutions, placing women in a subordinate position to men. Only boys and men can become priests; male bishops and stake presidents lead the local churches, which were positions held by Mitt Romney when he lived in Massachusetts. What role would single, lesbian, widowed, or divorced women have in the U.S. under a Romney Administration? Would we anomalies be ostracized or considered unworthy of respect and dignity? Women are to marry and have children, leaving the work place to men.
