Blue America Billboard Trucks Spending July In Jeff Denham's And Jim Costa's Central Valley Districts


Route 99, the Golden State Highway, splits off from the 5 Freeway just south of Bakersfield in southern California and stretches north to include a straight path through the Central Valley-- including all of CA-16 and all of CA-10, way into the north where it merges with the 5 again at Red Bluff. Even though the 99 goes through Elk Grove in Ami Bera's district south and east of Sacramento, Blue America is concentrating on just two districts-- and two odious congressmen-- with our billboard truck, CA-10 and CA-16. Both are blue districts that voted for Obama both times. CA-10 is represented by conservative Republican Jeff Denham and CA-16 is represented by conservative Blue Dog Jim Costa. Both men are in the pocket of Wall Street and Big Business special interests and both are backing trade policies that steal hundreds of millions of dollars from Medicare to grease the skids for the job-destroying TPP.

We don't think the voters in the Central Valley know what these two duplicitous congressmen are up to. And we're using our movable billboards (above and below) to make sure some of them find out. The truck will be spending July traveling up and down the Golden Gate Highway between Fresno-Yosemite International Airport and Manteca, with lots of driving around Fresno, Madera, Chowchilla, Merced, Delhi, Turlock, Ceres, Bystrom, Modesto, Salida and Manteca. July should be a fiery month in the Central Valley.

Now, moving billboards aren't the only way Blue America is going after these bastards. We don't want to signal all of our intentions but... I just heard from the L.A. Times that we're the first organization or campaign to start advertising with them for the 2016 cycle. Wait till you see the striking ads! If you'd like to help us with these endeavors, we have an Independent Action Committee and it has its own ActBlue page... and we can only do these actions with help from like-minded supporters. Please give what you can here. It means more trucks, more districts, and more organizing against reactionaries and their Wall Street agenda.
