FEB 26 SV Dems CASH MOB for Will Rollins

The Sonoma Valley Democrats hosted their February virtual General Meeting on Monday, Feb. 26, 2024, at 6:30pm.

  The special guest speaker was Will Rollins, Congressional Candidate for CA-41, one of the most competitive races in the country. Rollins lost the district by only 4.6 points in the 2022 midterm election. His opponent, Republican Ken Calvert, has opposed abortion under any circumstances and has supported anti-LGBTQI legislation. Some of Will’s priorities are infrastructure and the environment. Taking back the House is a crucial goal for the 2024 elections and CA-41 is a very flippable district!

  We also had several speakers on important local issues: Norman Gilroy of Mobilize Sonoma discussing storage of oil tankers in Schellville, Marty Bennett from Unite Here gave an update on the unionization of workers at the Sonoma Fairmont Mission Inn, and Dr. Mary McDevitt will present “Medicare: Level the Playing Field.”   
As part of Dr. McDevitt’s presentation, the majority of members present voted to support a letter to President Biden. You can view the letter at:
