ELECTING DEMOCRATS IN STANISLAUS COUNTY


A political "farm team" is a Party's system of local office holders and party staffers who are given the opportunity to gain the experience of governing and to campaign for election at a higher office level. In Stanislaus County both parties have such farm teams but the GOP seems to me to be better organized to move their farm team up to the big leagues of governing. Steve Nascimento was a congressional staffer and is now running for Turlock city council; Anthony Cannella was Ceres mayor and was elected to State Senate; Jeff Denham was State Senator and was elected to Congress.
The Democratic Party of Stanislaus County can be more efficient and effective in considering, recruiting, running, and electing Democrats. Our organisation has room for improvement and we all have a responsibility to make this happen on a year round basis. Electing people with strong Democratic values to local offices should be a focus every year. Are you ready to help?

Obama saves Chrysler and it earns $436 million in second quarter - The Hill's Transportation Report

They wanted the American car industry destroyed but President Obama saved the day without the GOP. Here is more proof:
