Today, John Burton, California Democratic Party Chairman urged all Democrats statewide to pitch in to Get Out the Vote for public school teacher John MacMurray to the California State Assembly in two weeks:
“With so much at stake in California right now, itâ€™s critical that we keep trying to build on the Democratic majority in the state Legislature. Thatâ€™s why I hope youâ€™ll join me in fighting to send John MacMurray to the state Assembly in the November 17 special election.
“The resignation of disgraced Republican Assemblyman Mike Duvall could give us a rare opportunity to elect a new Democratic legislator from Orange County.
“Democrat John MacMurray is a local teacher who shares our values. In the Assembly, he will work to ensure that every child receives the skills and tools needed to be competitive in our institutes of higher education and the workforce. He will make Californiaâ€™s economic recovery a priority and advocate on behalf of our essential community services.
“Even 15 minutes of your time spent phone banking can help John MacMurray in the 72nd Assembly District. Please, whenever you have a moment between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. before November 17, log on to our innovative online phone banking system and make a few calls for a fellow Democrat.
