OK. Beth Gaines announced her candidacy.
As of the time I am writing this, there is no press conference scheduled, just a “leak” on a southern california based blog. Click Here.
Why would someone running in Northern California use a Southern California based website to leak the announcement info?
Jeff Randall started a Facebook group to go along with his website. Click Here
Cheryl Bly-Chester sent the following Email to her list of supporters last night:
Just a brief note before it hits the papers that I am announcing my candidacy for the 4th Assembly race special election on Thursday morning. Please hold off until then – I just wanted you to know. – Cheryl
The election will be on March 8, 2011 and I need to get the word out and start fund-raising — fast. The governor announced the election today and there are only 7-weeks to go before the big event. This is an open election where everyone votes, no matter what their party affiliation and the top two vote-getters go on to a run-off election.
I would appreciate contributions following FPPC campaign guidelines ($3,900 max per person, provide your profession, employer, home address, and especially telephone number so that we can contact you if we need more information). I understand that these are trying times, so please only give if you can afford it. More importantly, pass along the information – maybe print out fliers and give them to your neighbors. If you go to any expense, please let me know so that I can report it as an in-kind donation.
My campaign number is (916) 747-2293 and the email address will be firstname.lastname@example.org – Thank you so much for your support. I will let you know where the election night party will be! – Cheryl
