Feb 26 – Monthly Meeting – Political Climate – Doug Applegate on Taking the Hill, Carl Yaeckel from Citizens Climate Lobby


Control of the House in 2018 will be decided by a handful of Swing Districts, places where the last election was decided by a thin margin. In 2016, we lost the 49th by a slim margin of just 1,621 votes with over 310,000 cast. 

Come to learn, and challenge, how we can work with Doug’s campaign to take back the Hill.

I believe Congress is a function of the people, by the people, and for the people. For too long, we have sent politicians to Washington D.C. who play into the corruption of special interests over the needs of Americans and the nation. We need problem solvers in our government. We need new, positive leadership committed to integrity, accountability and transparency in a Congress that is willing to take big-money’s influence out of our Government. 

As your elected delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives, I will reject political brinkmanship and focus on bipartisan measures that advance our economy bringing jobs back to the United States, help our troops and veterans, preserve our environment including our coastal habitats, and protect our values as American people.

Can you imagine Congress passing a law that will grow the economy, create jobs, save lives, and reduce U.S. carbon dioxide emissions by over 50% in just twenty years? Citizens Climate Lobby can.

Can you imagine a bi-partisan approach to addressing climate change, based on respect and appreciation for every member of Congress? CCL is doing just that.

With more than 45,000 volunteers and 325 chapters across the country, Citizens Climate Lobby is bringing lawmakers together to work on climate change solutions. Citizens Climate Lobby is headquartered right here in San Diego.
