Big week! Endorsements & Events…

What a week! Big week for endorsements:
  • our U.S. Congressman, Mike Thompson
  • Solano County’s Democratic Central Committee
  • the oldest Democratic club in our county – the United Democrats of Southern Solano
Tuesday night at Bella Sienna with Mike Caplin, a friend and omnipresent volunteer for Main Street events

I’m honored and humbled to receive the support of these prestigious leaders and groups, as well all of the people I’ve met as I knock on doors, getting out the vote.

This week, I also attended the Taste of First Street event on Tuesday, where I wore my candidate badge and received all kinds of great feedback. Most commonly, I heard “Thanks for running.”
