Do you ever get the sense that life is moving too fast? 2014 is an election year and things are moving quickly. Alameda County Republican Party is fielding a competent set of candidates for offices all over the county. It’s never easy for Republicans here, however we will be competitive in a number of races.
Assembly District 16 – Catharine Baker (Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore) http://bakerforassembly.com/
Catharine is running a superb campaign for Assembly. She decisively won the Primary against three male Democrats, coming in first with a margin of 7.5 points between her and the union supported second place finisher. We are hosting major Get-Out-The-Vote weekend on Sep 13-14 and the California Republican Party Chairman Jim Brulte along with Republican Assembly Leader elect Kristin Olsen will be with us to support Catharine. Join the fun and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Assembly District 20 – Jaime Patino (San Lorenzo, Hayward, Castro Valley, Sunol, Union City, Newark, North Fremont)
Jaime is an MBA Latino who works at U.C. Berkeley. He was born in the USA and raised in Union City.
He leads the Union City Human Relations Commission and knows people, elected officials, educators across the partisan spectrum. He has been doing a terrific job meeting voters at events all over the district and walking precincts too. His opponent Bill Quirk is bland, unpopular, and the Democrat party sends ‘handlers’ with him where ever he goes. This could be a ‘sleeper’ race for us. https://www.patinofor20thassembly.com/
Senate District 10 – Peter Kuo (Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Hayward, Union City, Newark, Fremont)
Peter Kuo is a Chinese naturalized U.S. citizen who came to the United States when he was 12. He has lived the American Dream, growing up in Santa Clara, learning to be a pilot and a business man. He has his own insurance agency business with 3000 clients. Married with two teenaged children, Peter wants his kids to have the same opportunities in California that he found when growing up here. His campaign has caught fire and is attracting cross-over votes from the Asian Democrat communities. http://www.kuoforsenate.com/
I plan to update you on this website regularly between now and election-day, about local race candidates and the ballot initiatives in our community. Check out the websites and Facebook pages of our candidates and get involved where you can. We expect the turnout in November to be lower than normal which could be advantageous for some of our candidates. Republicans are good voters and we count on you and your support.
Additionally, please follow Alameda County Republican Party on Facebook. “Like” our page. It will help us get noticed with our information. I have a twitter handle – @SueCaro1 if you like to follow on Twitter.
Until next time,
Sue Caro, Chairman
