East County United is making a difference

and they're working hard to elect progressive candidates in San Diego's East County. I want to share a bit of info from an email I received from ECU. The leadership of ECU recently traveled to to meet with state party chair Art Torres and other leaders in Sacramento.

As a result of our visit the Party has assigned a Political Outreach Director to our ReĀ­gion. Chairman Torres has agreed to visit East County in the near future and provide other forms of assistance to raise awareness in our community on key issues of mutual concern to us all.

We can expect greater assistance from the California Democratic Party for our local candidates in the next election. The 58-County Strategy will be funded with the help of a professional and accomplished fundraiser. We must stay engaged in the process if we are to see the benefits.

Wow. Cool, eh? This is a very "red" part of San Diego and one might reasonably think it had completely dropped off the Democratic Party's radar, so kudos to East County United for working so hard and so effectively for positive, progressive change. Feel free to thank them with a generous donation!

Hi Peter, That's a good question, and I'd say they're fine with activists in general. Maybe it depends on what you're doing, you little troublemaker!

But to be honest, I can't speak for them and the question is a tad general.

I think I know what you mean though. I'm seeing a little more tension between different activist groups. Different people and different groups have different agendas and some times they're in sync and sometimes not.

Actually, I've been thinking about this a lot in recent weeks and was going to write about it, but haven't sorted it out in my head yet.
