This Saturday, as hundreds of volunteers throughout the state came together for Jerry Brown's Statewide Day of Action, Felix and I hopped in the car and road-tripped down the coast to visit some of the counties involved.
We began our day at 6am, heading south out of San Francisco on the 101. A beautiful sunrise greeted us, starting our adventure on a positive note.
First we stopped by the Salinas headquarters, where volunteers were arriving for a massive canvassing effort.
We then visited our friends in Monterey at their office lovely San Bonifacio plaza, who were busy listening to Congressman Sam Farr give an inspiring speech.
From there, we headed to San Luis Obispo, where local Democratic leaders Pat and Susan manned the office while their volunteers braved the heat to walk precincts and get out the vote for Jerry.
Continuing south, we stopped in Santa Maria and Santa Barbara. Although both offices were closing up shop for the day, they reported great success for each of their Day of Action events.
Finally, we made it to Ventura in the nick of time. County Coordinator Brian was thrilled to report a full house of enthusiastic volunteers phone-banking all day.
Our trip only represented a small fraction of the energized supporters throughout California who rallied together to spread Jerry's message and engage voters.
