We will be joining a statewide effort to get out the vote in California Congressional District 25!
When: Wednesday, April 25th at 11:00AM – 2:00 PM
Where: Santino’s Pizza Parlor – 4321 Telegraph Rd, Ventura
Fun! Pizza will be provided! (A little cheese grease goes a long way toward making our postcards have that special “homey” touch!)
CD25 is Steve Knight’s district which includes part of Ventura County, Santa Clarita, Lancaster, and Palmdale. We Venturans can’t vote Knight out, but we can help our neighbors rid themselves of him – and help ourselves by removing one of the 24 Trump minions needed to turn the House blue! We are not endorsing a candidate, just advocating power to the polls.
Our appeal will be directly to the voters in CA25 – NOT mass political mailings, because all of our cards will be handwritten. Each will be a message from one voter to another. We are simply asking Americans to do that most American thing — VOTE!
Here are some tidbits from about Steve Knight to inspire us:
Let us count the ways Steve Knight has betrayed us: He votes with Trump 98% of the time. He voted against our healthcare. The National Rifle Association gives him an A rating. He voted for the #TrumpTaxScam. He’s Continue reading “Postcard Pizza Party for California Congressional District 25 on April 25th!”
Steve Knight’s stance on guns from his fundraising website:
“Our nation’s founders enshrined the right to bear firearms in the Constitution, which means the government has no right to enact arbitrary restrictions. Undermining the 2nd Amendment by crafting gun control laws aimed to reduce violence rarely results in safer communities. Instead, it is responsible gun owners who pay the price as criminals rarely comply with the laws enacted to keep firearms out of their hands. There is no law Congress can pass to stop gun violence, however we must examine better policing strategies and mental health services in order to provide a more direct path to solving the problem of gun violence.”
I could go on quite the tangent here, but I won’t. Instead I’m going to Simi Valley and Santa Clarita next month to defeat this guy. If you need more convincing, click here.

Since we started this resistance group right after the first Women’s walk, we’ve had moments that have been alternately grim, inspiring, and enlightening.
And, now one that was just fun…
Yesterday, we again joined fellow Indivisible and resistance groups outside Congressman Steve Knight’s (R-CA-25) office in Simi to join in a protest rally. However, since retirement announcements from fellow CA GOP members Issa and Royce, this time we went to encourage Mr. Knight to see the wisdom of following in their footsteps.
Note to voters… California utilizes a top-two primary system, which allows all candidates to run and all voters to vote but only moves the top two vote-getters, regardless of party affiliation, to the general election. A motivated electorate can remove Mr. Knight at the primary.
There were the basics of rallies…signs and cheering! With music!

United, we are sending a clear message to Rep Steve Knight: stand with his constituents and vote NO on the Trump Tax Scam.
We must stand with our friends and neighbors who will suffer from this bill.
Knight cannot steal money from his district like The Grinch, he will be held accountable.
When: Monday, December 18 at 4 PM – 5 PM
Where: 1445 E Los Angeles Ave, Simi Valley, California 93065
Bring: Your voice, your friends, your sign (we have extra signs and masks!).

Let us count the ways Steve Knight has betrayed us: He votes with Trump 98% of the time. He voted against our healthcare. He voted for the #TrumpTaxScam. He’s rabidly anti-choice. He opposed raises to minimum wage for workers. And his environmental record is dismal.
The National Rifle Association gives him an A rating.
And we’d bet our shirts that when it’s time to vote for the DREAMers or the Stupid Border Wall, he’s going to rubber stamp Trump too.
