Governor's Pembroke Welsh corgi To Visit 30 California Democratic Party Field Offices to "Bark out" the Vote for Prop 30 in Order to Stop Cuts to Education
Sacramento - Supporters of Governor Brown's "Yes on Prop 30" measure will receive reinforcements this week as Sutter Brown, California's "First Dog," puts paw to concrete and hits the campaign trail on a "30 for 30" tour of the California Democratic Party's Battleground California field offices.
Sutter will help "bark out" the vote in support of Prop 30, which stops the cuts to education and tuition hikes by investing in California's future. Volunteers who show up on tour stops and make at least one hour of phone calls to voters will have a chance to meet Sutter as he travels across the state.
"With only two full weeks left before Election Day we're unleashing our cutest and cuddliest secret weapon out into the field," said Tenoch Flores, Communications Director for the California Democratic Party. "Across the state Californians are lending a hand, and in some cases a paw, to the effort to pass Proposition 30 to stop the cuts to education. In addition to volunteering at participating local Democratic Party offices, voters can help by using a dedicated online phone bank to make calls from home."
Volunteers who show up to phone bank at one of the thirty Sutter Brown tour stops will also get a limited edition Sutter Brown trading card as a souvenir of this unique campaign effort. Volunteers are also being asked to kindly leave their canine companions at home if they plan on coming into a California Democratic Party campaign office to volunteer for this event as many offices are not set up to accommodate multiple dogs.
Proposition 30 helps California avoid steep tuition hikes, and invests in schools and colleges this year. Prop. 30 asks California's wealthiest to pay a little more so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden. Under Prop. 30, families making below $500,000 a year will pay no additional income taxes. Even with a 1/4 cent increase, the sales tax will remain lower than it was last year.
Prop 30 will:
- Stop another $6 billion in cuts to our schools this year.
- Prevent steep tuition hikes for college students and their families.
- Invest in schools and colleges to create a skilled California work force.
