Welcome To Say No To Pombo

[Note to regular SNTP readers] I am going to be promoting this post to the top of the page through Election Day. There will be lots of new posts between now and then. Just scroll down past this one, and you will find plenty of fresh material.

Well, we are now five four three two one day away from the 2006 election. Say No To Pombo is starting to get many new readers who are paying attention to the CA-11 race between Jerry McNerney and Richard Pombo. To those of you who are visiting here for the first time, let me tell you a little bit about SNTP. We just recently celebrated our first birthday, and over the last year, the writers here have posted close to 500 articles that touch on issues we feel are important in this year's Congressional race in California's 11th District. Just about any topic that you might think of has probably been written about here.

So I want to invite you to use the handy google feature in the right-hand sidebar of this website. There, you can search this site for any topic in which you might be interested, and you will most likely find some information relevant to this race. So good luck, I hope you find lots of posts that are useful to you, and I also hope that on November 7, you will have several good reasons to Say No To Pombo.

Congrats on a great event! Always nice to be a FOB (Friend of Bill).

Excerpts from SFGate's Political Blog:

More than 500 people -- the McNerney campaign estimated the number may have exceeded 1,000 -- sat through the season's first significant rain storm to cheer Clinton, McNerney and a handful of other Democratic candidates and state party officials at the get-out-the-vote rally held on the tarmac at the Stockton airport.

The main event didn't get going until after 10 p.m. -- more than an hour late -- but that didn't blunt the crowd's enthusiasm.
McNerney got things rolling, attacking Pombo and repeating the Democratic Party's mantra this election season that voters have a chance to change the direction of the country.

"Every single vote counts," he said.

Then it was Clinton's turn.

"It's late. You stood here in the rain and you did it for a reason. You know it matters," said Clinton, who flew into Stockton from San Francisco, where he headlined a fundraiser that generated more than $2 million for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's final efforts leading into Tuesday's election.

"You've got a few days," Clinton continued. "And when you go to work tomorrow, when you walk down the street tomorrow, when you go to the grocery store, when you go anywhere, you look in the eyes of the people you meet ... and you tell them you don't care what your political party is, you don't care what they've done in the past. You're not mad at anybody. You just know we can do better."

From the streets of Morgan Hill on Saturday..If what we encountered yesterday in one of Morgan Hill's more posh neighborhoods is any indication, it's going to a long night for Congressman Pombo.

Some vignettes: An independent female voter greeted us at the door, saying that she was suffering from the flu, but when she saw we were from Jerry's campaign, she came out onto the porch and said, "There is NOTHING that could get me to vote for Richard Pombo, I am definitely on McNerney's side." The mere mention of Pombo's name seemed to make her instantly furious.

Another gentleman emerged from behind his door and came outside and discussed for five minutes why he is strongly leaning to McNerney. He had a real distaste for Pombo and knew the issues well. Another young lady greeted us and said, "Oh we've voted already, we've got to get Pombo OUT!".

We had precinct walkers for all but 2 of the 33 precincts by the time my son and I showed up at 10:30..If we all get out and work hard the next three days, we will pull this off!

I remember meeting Jerry in a big Stockton park in 2004 as we began a day of canvassing, and how impressed I was that an ordinary citizen would step up and challenge this powerful Pombo. It is a tribute to all of us that we have gotten this far, but THE JOB IS NOT DONE YET..It's all about contacting ten, twenty, fifty people between now and Tuesday at 8 pm..LET'S CHANGE AMERICA!
