We knew our races would be close. Coming out of the Primary, many of our candidates won or lost by under 100 votes. We also knew voters who don’t regularly vote were motivated this year by the loss of their basic right to bodily autonomy.
Local Elections Matter
We say it all the time – LOCAL elections matter. Who represents us on the school board, on city council, on county boards and commissions, has the power to deny or expand services in our local communities.
The Fresno City Council overwhelmingly supports Planned Parenthood Mar Monte and voted to pass a $1,000,000 state budget allocation to support medical equipment and service expansion in Fresno. Then, Fresno Mayor Jerry Dyer vetoed it. These funds are vitally needed now more than ever, and yet Mayor Dyer’s extremist politics would block people from getting the health care they need and deserve.
On September 1, the veto-proof council majority voted to override the Mayor’s veto!
Victories like this do not happen overnight. It takes strategic investment in candidates and our movement, year over year, to build the political environment to support patients and providers.
Help keep this momentum going to the election. Donate today so together we can build political power in every corner of our service area, up and down the ballot.
