House Bill H.R. 2157 provides $19.1 billion in emergency relief to help areas impacted by natural disasters in 2018-19 and was passed by both the House and Senate with bipartisan support.
Tom McClintock, our Congressional District 4 (CD-04) House Representative, stayed consistent with voting no on a bill that would potentially help millions of people. For more information regarding McClintock’s voting history, please visit: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/congress-trump-score/tom-mcclintock/.
McClintock has a history of voting further to the right of President Trump and a majority of his colleagues. Based on his history, these are just a few questions we would like you to consider:
1. How does McClintock’s voting affect our district?
2. Does he vote according to CD-04’s needs or does he vote according to his ideological views?
3. Considering a large swath of CD-04 includes the Sierra Nevada Mountains/Foothills, how does McClintock represent and support his constituents who live in high risk fire zones?
When it comes to voting for our next House Representative, we should consider candidates who put our community before party and who will support and defend our specific needs, concerns and values.
Congressional District 4 has two declared Democratic candidates, Brynne Kennedy and Sean Frame. Both candidates have visited our county, and more specifically, our Motherlode Democrats Club.
Brynne Kennedy is scheduled to attend our monthly committee meeting on July 1st at 7:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome!
