Candidate in 37th Congressional District Needs Help

I know that the 37th Congressional District is Long Beach/Compton, but I wanted to write something briefly about the race that is going on out there. When Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald passed away last month the seat was vacated, and we now have an interesting race in a special election that will take place on June 26th.
Click here to read more about the race.

Jenny Oropeza has some pretty good endorsements in this race. The California Democratic Party endorsed her, and so have Rep. Loretta Sanchez and Rep. Linda Sanchez.

Oropeza was a staunch critic of the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Long Beach when she sat on their city council, and she supported a bill to ban big-box grocery stores statewide.

If you wanted to volunteer some time to Oropeza’s campaign, call their office at 562.424.9262.

    I encourage all local Orange County Democrats to walk, phone, stuff envelopes and donate money to Jenny. She is a dedicated elected official and will make a great member of Congress. In an off election year, this is an excellent opportunity to get involved and gear up for the upcoming Presidential Campaign.
