On behalf of Ocean Champions, I am back in CA11 for the last week of the campaign to try to put Jerry McNerney in office.
We will be paying canvassers to go door-to-door in Brentwood. Anyone who is interested in joining the Brentwood effort please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Why, you may ask, are we concentrating our efforts in Brentwood? From what I can surmise, the anti-Pombo forces seem to be pretty well organized in all other areas of the district. This is where I figure a relatively small force can make a difference. Hopefully, the difference that will put Jerry McNerney over the top.
The last day I spent in CA11 for Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund was in the middle of primary season. It was clear back then that Pombo was vulnerable, but there's a different dynamic now. Pombo is running scared. The prognosticators have moved this seat into "toss up" status, and a recent polls shows McNerney up a few points. Kudos to all of you who have been a part of this effort.
Let's do all we can over the next 8 days to defeat Richard Pombo. And, when Jerry wins next Tuesday, I promise not to take all the credit for putting him over the top in the last week.
It's good to be back in CA11. There's a good vibe on the street.
