When our air and water can make us sick, our government has failed us. The CPV power plant should be shut down, and its operating permits revoked. Jen Metzger has been working for years toward a locally based, clean energy economy that will create thousands of good local jobs, lower our energy costs, and most importantly, keep our air and water clean and healthy.

Yesterday, Lissette and I met with Juan, owner and head chef at the Taco Factory (which, by the way, is the lunch stop of choice for Max, our Middletown field organizer).

In addition to being a brilliant chef, Juan studied economics in college, and we had an interesting conversation about wages and the small business economy. Juan's business does well when working people have more money in their pockets to spend, and when his business does well, his workers have more money to spend in the local economy. Healthy living wages for working people make for a healthy economy.

This weekend, I attended an educational community health fair run by Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine students. Activities included CPR training, which I was happy to take because CPR has changed since I was a lifeguard in high school!

Fairs like this are such a good opportunity for these medical students to put their education into practice, while providing practical and potentially life-saving information to the community. - at United Presbyterian Church of Middletown.

We had such a positive experience knocking on doors today in Middletown. It's a great feeling to make that personal connection with people. Thank you so much, Evelyn, Sonia, Manny, Lissette, and Krystal. The Latino Democratic Committee of Orange County is a powerful force for good!

Good article in the Record yesterday.

"Metzger, who’s eager to pass campaign finance and ethics reforms, would vote to close a legal loophole that lets big donors use limited-liability companies to bypass contribution limits ... Rabbitt opposes all of those proposals. She argues, for instance, that campaign donors would find other loopholes if the state closed its LLC loophole."
