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

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT THE NORTHCOAST PEOPLE'S ALLIANCE:

Hello Friends!

Are you fired up and ready to get down to business after Saturday's amazing march? We are! We thought you'd like to know about some upcoming events here locally.
  • Tuesday, 1/24, at 9:00 a. m., come to the Humboldt County Courthouse (825 5th Street, Eureka) to observe and/or speak at the Board of Supervisors' weekly meeting. Of particular interest this week is the subject of a seat on the county Planning Commission that comes available at the end of this month. Last week the Board voted to delay the re-appointment of HumCPR founder Lee Ulansey in order to consider other candidates (which they will do this week). Many of us plan to speak to encourage the Board to appoint someone less divisive and more progressive - someone who will represent a broader spectrum of our population, and who is committed to environmental protection.
  • Tuesday, 1/24, at 7:00 p. m., check out Humboldt Move to Amend's monthly meeting at the Labor Temple (840 E Street, Eureka) - details on Facebook.
  • Thursday, 1/26, at 5:00 p. m., is the Northcoast Environmental Center's New Year's Mixer at 415 I Street in Arcata - Enjoy drinks, food and good company with volunteers, staff, board members and fellow supporters dedicated to protecting our North Coast. Celebrate the successes of 2016 and look to the year ahead! - details on Facebook.
  • Sunday, 1/29, at 1:00 p. m., join the NCPA book club for a meeting and discussion at the Labor Temple (840 E Street, Eureka) - This month's book is Viking Economics by George Lakey. Everyone is welcome to attend even if you have not read the book.
Now's the time to ENGAGE and RESIST!

In solidarity,

North Coast People's Alliance

Student Poll Worker Program

California Elections Code section 12 302 allows eligible students to be appointed as poll workers on Election Day.

As poll workers, students learn first hand the importance of participating in the electoral process. In addition, they provide much needed support at polling place locations.

In order to eligible to be appointed as a poll worker, a student must be:

  • A United States citizen;
  • At least 16 years of age at the time of the election in which he or she will be serving;
  • A high school student with a grade point average of at least 2.5 (based on a 4.0 scale);
  • A student in good standing, attending a public or private secondary educational institution.

In addition to gaining experience in the electoral process, students can also earn stipends.
