Subject: Protecting Jerry McNerney’s Votes–Still Too Close to Call
November 9, 2010

Jerry McNerney needs our help, his is one of seven Congressional races still undecided. The following is from his website, and he needs both volunteers and donations for legal expenses to cover costs associated with monitoring the vote counts. The Tea Party is out there in force, and while Jerry is up, the election could still go either way.

Update from Team McNerney
Thank you for all the calls and emails we’ve received. I appreciate your words of encouragement, contributions and offers to volunteer.

I want to provide you with an update. We’re now leading by 568 votes. There are still thousands of vote-by-mail and provisional ballots to be counted. County registrars are preparing to tally the votes.

If you’re interested in supporting our efforts to ensure a fair and transparent vote counting process, please contact our office at (925) 833-0643.

Again, thank you for your support.

Congressman Jerry McNerney

This election was a wake-up call. The country is very divided and the right’s antipathy towards Obama & Pelosi rivals our past outrage with Bush & Cheney. We wanted to take back our country, but now that’s the Tea Party’s rallying cry… and unlike ours, theirs gets amplified by the right-wing media

Over the next couple years I expect we’ll all be in touch with with relatives, friends and colleagues in other parts of the country who do not share our San Francisco values. Do what you can to enlist their support for the change in America that we seek, don’t let the Tea Party Republicans get away with demonizing our progressive leaders.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
