At the request of a UC Davis scholar, I'm finally back, fresh and glowing from the successes of our mid-term elections!

Not only did Democrats take back both houses of Congress, but I get to celebrate some local victories close to my own heart!!

Debra Bowen is the new Secretary of State in California! Finally, we can all rest assured that our vote is going to be counted as it was cast and that someone is going to hold county registrars responsible for making sure every registered voter gets to cast a ballot on election day!!

Jerry McNerney beat 7-term incumbent Richard Pombo in CD-11! Not only does this kick a big-oil bad-guy out of Congress, but it replaces him with a really good guy. I mean, who doesn't love wind energy, the jobs created by clean energy, and the earnesty and seriousness of a man who's son is serving in the military?

Abel Guillen is the newest member of the Peralta Community College Board (Oakland), and he's going to make sure the new bond money is spent on students, teachers, and staff!!

So many great victories! It feels so good, at last, to see the good women and men win!!

    Hi Pam,
    I am looking forward to when you run for office. I'll be behind you all the way.

    Your dear friend
