Let’s put Congress back to work and not carve up the state

Create a new state named Jefferson because we don’t have a voice in our state government?

Well I have news for the steering committee leader Eddie Garcia, we have a Tea Party Congressman in Doug LaMalfa. I have to agree with Garcia that Congressman LaMalfa is not doing a good job representing us here in Northern California, District 1.

Congressman LaMalfa has done absolutely nothing for us except to obstruct the governing process and take million of taxpayer’s dollars in farm subsidies. Which proves to me that the Tea Party is a corrupt party of hypocrites. I, for one, am totally against a state of Jefferson which is a way too drastic plan. I don’t like the idea of cutting up our beautiful state of California.

I will be voting for a social progressive and fiscal moderate who believes as I do that a strong middle class is key to America’s future. I will be voting for Heidi Hall in November. When women vote, Democrats win. I urge everyone to register and vote for Heidi Hall. Let’s put Congress back to work for the people.
