Upcoming Ways to Fight Pombo

Here are some upcoming ways you can help fight Pombo. The first item is a non-partisan voter registration event focusing on Latinos in Tracy, led by Clean Water Fund and Working Assets. Although it is non-partisan, it’s likely that an increase in Latino registration in the district will translate into a net gain in votes for Pombo’s opponents. The second item is a series of canvasses led by Defenders of Wildlife. As always, if you need a ride to the district, or if you are driving to the district and you can give other anti-Pombo activists a lift, be sure to make use of the Left on 580 website.

Saturday May 20
This Saturday, join Clean Water Fund for a final big push to register eligible voters in Tracy. Our organizing will be concentrated on the Latino community which is often over-looked in our current political climate. We will be canvassing neighborhoods, community centers, and outside of local establishments in large effort to educate voters and show that democracy can work…when we all participate. Environmental justice and having clean water should be a right that we all enjoy.

We’ll meet for a quick training and orientation at Dr. Powers park in Tracy at 10:00 (coffee and snacks will be provided). We will then organize from 11-3:00 and help to register our fellow Californians.

Car pools will leave San Francisco (Clean Water Fund office at 111 New Montgomery street) at 9:00 AM sharp, and Berkeley/Oakland (Berkeley Bowl parking lot, near the corner of Adeline & Russell streets) at 9:15 AM sharp. Please note in the comments box on the next page if you need or can offer a ride.

It will be a fun day for all, so bring family and friends out for the day. Make sure to dress for a warm, sunny day and don’t forget…having clean water is always a good thing. Call Brett, our Outreach Director in the Central Valley, or e-mail (phone and email below) for any questions and we will see everyone on Saturday!

Canvassing to Say NO to Pombo

You don’t like Congressman Richard Pombo because:
1. Pombo is one of the most corrupt politicians in Washington according to non-partisan government watchdog groups.
2. Pombo is in the pocket of oil, chemical, mining and real estate industries, serving the interests of Big Money at the expense of ordinary Americans.
3. Pombo is the Wildlife Villain #1 who has vowed to gut the Endangered Species Act and other eco-friendly and pro-conservation policies.
4. And hundreds of other reasons.

Well then join the Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund to go door-to-door with door-hangers and talk with voters about why they should dump Pombo!
