I’m Stacy Dalgleish, I volunteer as a Volunteer Coordinator for the campaign.

I know — you don’t normally hear from me! Torie asked me to write a message about these last two weeks of the campaign, and about how important it is that everyone volunteer before the primary.

Will you make a call?

April 12th, 2012

From Sheila Kuehl, Former State Senator

For better or for worse….campaigns have really changed.

I ran — and won — state office in California five times in the last 20 years, when we had to do things without social media! Back in the day, as they say, high tech online tools were really difficult to use and excessively expensive.

Luckily for all of us supporting Torie and her campaign, that’s all changed! Starting today, you can help us call voters in the district without even leaving your home. And with just 54 days until the primary, we need all hands on deck making these calls!

Will you sign up to help staff the phones either at your home, or at the campaign office? It only takes a minute!

Raising money gets us pretty far in the campaign, but telling our stories to the voters gets us over the finish line. Read more…

Back room deals

November 11th, 2011

TO: Friends of Torie Osborn
FROM: Rick Jacobs

My friend and mentor, Torie Osborn, is running for State Assembly because she cares about the future of California. When it comes to the fight for equality, she’s second to none. She built the movement. She never flagged.

But guess what? The organization that says it leads LGBT equality in California just endorsed her straight opponent without even interviewing Torie. Sounds crazy, right? Unfortunately, it’s worse than that. The candidate they endorsed is an insider from their own board (!) who was elected last November in a different district. And now she’s moving into Torie’s district because, without a serious Republican opponent, our district seemed like an easier place to keep her job.

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of insider deals made in secret that determine who is supposed to “represent” me. I’m over it. That’s why we need to raise a ton of money for Torie now. Even if you can’t give a lot, a lot of givers will send the message: Torie is in this to win with us, not because insiders think she’s “entitled.”

I gave all I could, but then this happened, so I gave another $100. Will you make a contribution today?
