Postcards for Christy Smith for Congress
This past week I received the following email message from my Indivisible Simi Valley contact, Heather Stephenson, asking Indivisible Ferndale for help!
CA 25 needs your help again! Christy Smith (State Assemblywoman who ran sister campaign with Katie Hill) is running for our vacated Congressional Seat. Christy Smith has an excellent track record in the State Assembly in the year she has been in office and will make the transition as seamless as possible in terms of representation.”
You may recall that we wrote hundreds of postcards to voters in Simi Valley during the midterms and helped to elect Rep. Katie Hill. Unfortunately, Katie resigned from office this month amid controversy.
Also this past week, Republican Steve Knight who was the former incumbent in congressional district CA 25, has just announced his plans to reclaim his congressional seat.
Heather will have a postcard script to Democratic voters with names and addresses ready by next week. I am committing Indivisible Ferndale to writing 600 postcards over the next several weeks for this special election.
Already twelve members of the IF postcard writing team have said they are ready to write! We need more writers. Please email me here or call 786-7172 and let me know that you are ready to support Christy for Congress!

Support our local school board trustees
At our October 6 general meeting, IF member Donna McQueen announced that she would be going around with a clipboard to sign up for attendance at either a Ferndale Unified School District (FUSD) or a College of the Redwoods (CR) trustee meeting.
IF member, Donna McQueen spoke briefly regarding the importance of IF members attending local board meetings with a goal in mind of letting our elected board members know we, the public. are paying attention to what is going in our local schools and college. Some of you signed up on the clip board that was passed around at that meeting. We plan to put a virtual sign up sheet on the website. Please contact Donna via email here.
FUSD Trustee meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month in the Ferndale High School Library beginning at 7 pm. The next meeting will be on Wednesday, December 10.
The CR trustee meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month in the college administration building, Room SS-202, at the Eureka campus. Twice a year, the CR meetings are held at alternate locations. See the full 2020 schedule here.
Together, We are Indivisible!
