Garamendi Campaign Headquarters Opens in Fairfield

Crowd of 100 shows at office on North Texas Street in Fairfield.

Via a campaign press release:

Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield) was joined by over 100 local supporters for the grand opening of the Solano County Democratic Party and Garamendi for Congress Campaign Headquarters. 

“The choice has never been so clear,” said Congressman John Garamendi. “The Romney/Ryan Republican budget which my opponent supports is a budget that would terminate Medicare in the next 20 years, instate a 30 to 40 percent reduction in MediCal – 60 to 70 percent of which goes to nursing homes and the rest goes to young children, and explodes the deficit by giving extraordinary tax cuts to the extraordinarily wealthy. This is the most heartless proposal I’ve seen since I’ve been involved in governing.”

“Moving ahead, this is a fight for the soul of our country,” stressed Fairfield Vice Mayor Rick Vaccaro. “We really need to stand behind the people that we’re going to vote for and convince our friends and neighbors to vote for them as well. So let’s get out there and campaign for John.”

In addition to welcoming Congressman Garamendi’s opposition to the Romney/Ryan budget, supporters spoke about Garamendi’s commitment to the jobs and the Delta.

“When Altec was thinking about moving out of Dixon, John and I went to Altec and he talked to the management,” recalled Dixon Mayor Jack Batchelor Jr. “Long story short, Altec stayed in Dixon, expanded their operations and brought over 100 new jobs to the city. That’s the kind of representative we need back in Congress.

 “John is a warrior on the Delta,” said California State Senator Lois Wolk. “He lives there, he knows it, and he represents it. And with John in Congress there won’t be end runs around the state on water issues and in particular the Delta.”

The Solano Democratic Party and Garamendi for Congress Campaign Headquarters, located at 2500 North Texas St., Suite A in Fairfield, will be used to host phone banks and canvasses for the Garamendi campaign and other local Democratic Party supported races. After the event, supporters stayed to make phone calls to voters in Fairfield and Vacaville in support of Garamendi.

Congressman Garamendi is running in the new 3rd Congressional District which includes all or portions of Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba Counties.  After receiving 53% of the vote in the June 5th primary, Garamendi has advanced to the general election which will take place on November 6th, 2012.

John Garamendi is part of the problem, not part of the solution. He is the type of career politician that voters of both parties say should be voted out. Unforturnately,. it never seems to transfer to the voting booth

Voting out the incumbents and term limits make you think you're taking action. What these "solutions" really create is a legislature filled with amateurs, who don't have the experienced staff or the understanding of government to accomplish much -- which is just what the GOP wants. The newbies are much more likely to turn to longtime lobbyists for GOP sponsors (corporations, finance, and other industries which resist regulation and environmental controls) for "help." Now that campaigns cost millions, and "Citizens" United (What a joke -- the "citizens" in that organization are corporations!) enables anonymity, corporate PACs and other interest groups are all too ready to donate money and buy legislators. John Garamendi isn't for sale. Amazing how willing the middle class is to vote against its own interests. When corporations win, consumers lose....

Marilee, Garamendi is bought and paid for by the unions.
