Auburn Democrats can help Heidi Hall win, here’s how….

It’s just over three months until the November 4th General Election.  Here’s how you can help Heidi Hall get elected to House of Representatives (and displace Republican Doug LaMalfa).  The time to act is now – so if you have time or can make time – please get involved!
  • PHONE BANKING: Heidi’s success will depend, in large part, on our ability to share her message through as many discussions with voters as possible. Since phone banking is one of the most effective ways to spread that message, we will be making calls EVERYDAY from now until November. PLEASE help us get the word out! It really is one of the most important things you can do. To get started contact Sarah Casia at 530-200-3227 or heidihall2014@gmail.com.  You can call from your home with an online or paper list.
  • FUNDRAISERS: Meet-and-Greets are one of the best ways to bring in donations and give people the chance to interact with Heidi, hear her speak and ask questions. You invite everyone you know, we invite everyone we know in your area and Heidi comes to your house to meet with everybody for a couple hours.  Call or e-mail Sarah Casia if you can host a Meet-and-Greet.
  • DONATE: Heidi is up against an opponent with very deep pockets and with no major backing from big donors, she’s relying on donors like you and me. Please go to https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/heidihall and chip in $25, $50 or whatever you can to help make sure she’s got what she needs to make it through November.
  •  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Write 200 words about the number one reason you support Heidi or don’t support LaMalfa and submit it to your local newspaper.  Submit to Auburn Journal (Dennis Noone at dennisn@goldcountrymedia.com).  
  • VOTER REGISTRATION: There are tens of thousands of eligible but unregistered voters throughout the district so we’re launching a proactive voter registration effort that targets high-traffic areas, apartment buildings and special events.  E-mail or call Paul Comiskey (at (916) 663-9090 or paulcomiskey@hotmail.com), AADC’s Voter Registration Committee Chair, if you can help with Auburn area voter registration.
  • EVENTS: Heidi Hall will be at AADC’s Gold Country Fair booth, Friday, September 5th from 4-7 pm and at our upcoming AADC Fundraiser, Sunday September 21st from 2 to 4:30 pm at Joe Caribe’s Bistro and Cafe.  Tell you friends to come out and meet Heidi!  Also, if you know of other events in the Auburn area Heidi should try to be at, please contact Sarah Casia to get this event on Heidi’s calendar.

Heidi Hall for Congress Campaign Update

  • PHONE BANKING: We’re back at it! And with tens of thousands of voters to call in just 100 days, we need all hands on deck! We’re calling democrats and nonaffiliated voters and asking them one simple question: “Can Heidi count on your support in November?” You can do it online or with paper lists, at home or in groups. STARTING TOMORROW, I will lead weekly phone banks. To RSVP, contact me, Sarah Casia, at 530-200-3227 or heidihall2014@gmail.com.

Last Thursday, we woke up to some really good news. With one full week to go, Heidi had met her monthly fundraising goal! With supporters like YOU, Heidi can’t lose. Let’s keep up this momentum!
Later that day, Heidi had a lively conversation about Fracking on KNCO’s Fitzsimmons and Flores. Thanks to HOLLIE GRIMALDI FLORES and TOM FITZSIMMONS, a great radio team! In case you missed it, you can listen to the interview here: http://knco.com/online-audio/podcasts/latest-podcasts/1/?file=2014-07-28_14-05-01_fitflo.mp3&category=latest.
On Saturday, Heidi had back-to-back fundraisers. The first took place in Paradise. Huge thanks to BOB HOOD for working so hard to put this event on; to CHARLIE HOFF for inviting us into his beautiful home and MARJIE ECHOLS for preparing such a delicious and healthy spread! We raised a lot of funds and met a lot of new folks. It was a very lovely and successful event. Thank you!
Then it was off to Redding where the small but mighty SHASTA COUNTY DEMOCRATIC WOMEN’S CLUB AND FRIENDS once again put on a huge fundraiser for Heidi! This time they teamed up with MATSON VINEYARDS to offer free wine tasting, great food, live music and a raffle that included on autographed copy of Elizabeth Warren’s latest book! Special thanks to ROXANNE CRANE for donating that book and for the amazing cake she decorated to look like Heidi’s logo; and to MARGARET EARNEST and her sister ELAINE for all their hard work on decorations and the raffle. To ALL of you club members, thank you just doesn’t seem like enough. I hope you know how grateful both Heidi and I are to you for your continued support.
