Please consider writing in “Laura Wells,” and connecting the arrow, in the race for U.S. Representative, 13th Congressional District. The district has the Alameda County cities of Alameda, Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland, Piedmont, San Leandro.
This seat is currently held by Barbara Lee, a Democrat who is running unopposed for re-election. The write-in candidate who receives the most votes in the June primary will be on the November ballot. Please write “Laura Wells” in the blank square under United States Representative, and draw a line to connect the arrow on the right so that your vote will be counted.
The odds that Barbara Lee will win in November are about 99.99% and so the question is, “Who do you want to be in conversation with Barbara Lee in the fall campaign season?” In other words, do you want someone who is pressured by the billionaires, or on the side of the rest of us?
By writing in “Laura Wells” (and connecting the arrow!) we have a chance to provide some counterbalance to the huge pressure everyone in Washington gets from the billionaires and their corporations. Green Party candidates never take corporate money, and that idea is catching hold across the country.

IF WE WIN THE WRITE-IN VOTE . . .
We will have a November ballot statement, sent to all voters in California. Here is the initial draft:
Vote for a vibrant democracy, medicare for all of us, clean environment, and meaningful educational and employment opportunities for our next generations.
There is no excuse for the U.S. not to have these things already.
What stands in the way is a two-party system sold out to the billionaires and their corporations. Now, every four years, things are not better, they are worse. We can change that.
Tax the rich to reduce their power over our lives.
Stop military greed and the incarceration mania.
Your vote for a Green Party, no-corporate-money candidate pulls Congress away from the billionaires, toward the people. THERE ARE SOLUTIONS. We can have better social, economic and environmental justice, and a real democracy. Vote Green. LauraWells.org. cagreens.org. gp.org.
