Sincere thanks to all who attended our 2017 Chicken By The Sea fundraiser.  Our State Senator Mike McGuire is a super auctioneer and Assemblymember Jim Wood helped rev up the crowd.   Our volunteer bakers donated fabulously delicious cakes, cookies and pies for the auction - thank you so much!.  Many thanks also to our devoted volunteers and to all our supporters.

This message is from Nick Thomas of the HSU College Democrats:
 
I've been helping a group called Sister District try to recruit volunteers up
here in Humboldt, but need to cast a wider net.
 
 
Sister District is looking for volunteers to form a Humboldt County chapter.
The organization aims to marshal volunteers from safe districts (like our
own) to help support state legislative and congressional candidates in swing
districts — with the ultimate goal to win back Congress.  To sign up, follow
this link: https://www. sisterdistrict.com/volunteer. For more information

HOW TO HELP FEED THE HOMELESS - A LOCAL SOLUTION

Dear Friends:

Your generous support has helped expand our weekly effort to 

  • 140 sandwiches of ham, turkey, bologna (all with cheese), peanut butter and jam
  • 30# of bananas
  • 20# of dog food (people were giving their sandwiches to their dogs)
  • coffee, cocoa, and jugs of water.
We have also gathered and distributed 
  • 6 large boxes of clothes
  • 160 pairs of socks and 
  • 40 blankets
We hope you feel your donations have been well used and we will continue as funds allow.
 
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
You should all be very proud.
 
Thanks to your remarkable efforts and sharing through emails and Facebook, we have sufficient funds through the end of January 2017 to continue this manner of giving.  If you are able, please consider spreading the word again and contributing to our new campaign to further this effort well into 2017.
 
Your partner in sharing,
Larry Hourany

SENATOR MIKE MCGUIRE HAS LAUNCHED A PETITION TO TELL PRESIDENT TRUMP TO RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS:

President Donald Trump, breaking his promise to the American people and disregarding 40 years of precedent, now says he won’t  release his tax returns and that Americans don’t care about them. He’s dead wrong.

Transparency is a non-partisan issue. This legislation will require presidential candidates of any party to make five years of their tax returns public – starting with the next presidential election here in California. Help us restore accountability and transparency to the office of the President
