On Tuesday, June 15th, the California Democratic Party had their kick off to Stop the Republican Recall of Governor Newsom. Lizzy Heyboer will head these efforts with Rusty Hicks, our Chair of the party and all Democrats in the State of California. Lizzy comes to the party and brings her experience from working on the Elizabeth Warren campaign. We are hoping for her direction and expertise to send the message to the Republicans that we support Governor Newsom.

The date of the special election has been set for September 14, 2021.

The talking points will focus on Governor Newsom‘s record of maintaining California as one of the largest economies in the world, vaccinating over 30 million Californians, offering in-person instructions in schools in the fall, funding homelessness housing initiatives, etc.

The Stop the Recall campaign is looking for two main types and levels of volunteers. The first group will be the Community Captains that will host and attend tabling events, coordinate  canvassing and distribute materials. The second type of volunteers are Community Hubs. These volunteers will recruit volunteers,  lead groups such as Democratic Clubs, and coordinate phone banking and canvassing with the state party.

They will offer training for the Community Captains on Tuesday, June 22nd at 6 PM. There will also be a Weekend of Action on June 26th and 27th. Everyone will be asked to commit to do something every month leading up to the elections.
