- First and foremost, I want everyone to have a chance to see what real candidates are doing and how they do it. I would like to see all candidates in California (and elsewhere) begin to emulate the best that we have.
- Beyond that, I want to encourage each reader of this blog to donate something to their campaigns. We can only win in those races where we are able to amass enough funding to pay for literature, to pay to staff a campaign office, to pay for television / radio advertising, etc. We need to choose carefully, focus our giving on the best run campaigns, but we do need to contribute.
I went and helped pass out literature to people attending Independence, Republican, and Democratic Party caucuses in State House District 61B whereFarheen's site is not yet set up to accept credit card donations, but any who wish to contribute can do so by check. Checks may be made out to "Neighbors United for Farheen Hakeem" and mailed to the same:
Farheen Hakeem is running seeking Green Party endorsement for an open state house seat.
I was a little overwhelmed that I practically got mobbed for Farheen stickers and literature.
Many people said they didn't need lit but are voting for Farheen.
And this was the hard core of the hard core of the competing parties who all recognize Farheen as someone they like from her 2 previous Green Party races.

Everything I am reading about the way political opinion might be shaped tell me two things. Americans are optimistic and they value the sense of community. Farheen's campaign embodies those two traits, even to the name they have chosen. "Neighbors United" speaks of the positive things that Farheen will do.
In a real way, we are all part of Farheen's community and like good neighbors, we are here.
I ask all who read this to find me another Farheen Hakeem to add to my list.
