Vince Taylor

The Democratic Primary has within it two major camps: Moderate/Mainstream and Progressive. The clear front runners in the Progressive camp are Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

If you subscribe to progressive values, Bernie and Elizabeth are your only two realistic choices. Others can’t win or are centrist Democrats. Which one will you vote for? Or, even if you are a Progressive, are you leaning toward voting for a mainstream candidate because you think he or she is more likely to beat Trump?

To help you with your voting decision, come to the Oakmont Progressives’ meeting at the East Rec Center on Monday, January 13 at 7:00 pm. Vince Taylor will compare and contrast Bernie’s and Elizabeth’s positions on major issues, as well as their overall strategies for making our political system more responsive to the needs of working people and those left behind by our capitalist economy. We will also address the question of whether a centrist or progressive candidate is more likely to beat Trump.

There will be plenty of time for you to put forth your own views and ask your questions.

The California Democratic Primary will be held on March 3, 2020, and mail-in ballots will be arriving weeks earlier. There’s not much time left! It’s time to get serious about selecting and working for a candidate of your choice.

To learn more, come to our January 13, 2020 Progressives Meeting at the East Rec Center. Social time begins at 6:30 pm, meeting at 7:00 pm. If you plan to come, please register at Questions: call Vince Taylor at 707 583-9490.
