An email update just arrived from Carl DeMaio:
Despite the terrible bullying and harassment our campaign workers have been subjected to by Gov. Jerry Brown’s team, I’m thrilled to report that after only three weeks we have collected more than HALF of the signatures we need to put the recall of state Senator Josh Newman on the ballot. Over 35,000 signatures have been submitted to the Registrar of Voters’ offices in Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties – which cover Newman’s district.
This weekend we will deploy nearly 200 college students and volunteers to collect more signatures and deal with the “goon squads” Brown and Newman are paying to impede signature collection.
With the amazing progress we are making, for once it looks like we have the grassroots support to actually win against the forces of Sacramento. This recall will end the super-majority of Democratic tax-raisers in the Legislature and will give us the momentum to repeal the car and gas tax hikes with a statewide initiative.
The campaign will hold the following events this weekend:
WHAT: Signature Collection Deployment Rally of College Students
WHEN: Rally Saturday, June 3 at 8am-9am – various shifts on Sat & Sun
WHERE: 4901 Main Street, Yorba Linda
