The coalition of labor and community groups working to unseat Rep. Tom McClintock (R – CA 04) through a joint field campaign today announced a Working Families Day of Action on Saturday, June 2. Flip the 14, the Sacramento Central Labor Council, and the California Away Team are all working to replace McClintock with a congressional representative more in touch and in tune with the wishes of working people in the district.
“Rep. McClintock has failed to represent the working families of the district and his time is now up,” said Fabrizio Sasso, executive secretary of the labor council, which represents working families in the district. “McClintock represents the interests of corporations, voted against affordable health care, and delivers nothing for students, while failing to bring federal investment needed to improve the region’s roads, forests and waterways.”
The primary door-to-door canvasses are focused on voters who frequently miss elections in non-presidential years. New volunteers are always welcome, and training is available to make it a rewarding and consequential experience.
“We know that we can replace Tom McClintock with a true resident of our district, which he is not. We need someone who is actually from our district, lives in it and deeply cares about our quality of life here,” said Suz Eckes, co-chair of the District Action Council. “We’ve run the numbers, and we know CA-04 is a flippable seat. McClintock only looks out for the super rich. He’s out of touch and out of time.”
All three organizations are candidate neutral in the primary.
