Our own Alison Hartson is testifying in front of California Senate tomorrow

Boy, did I luck out when I met Alison! And I'm thrilled she's joined us here.

Wolf Pac California Director, head of Americans Take Action California, and DUer, Alison Hartson:

Sorry for the late notice. I didn't know this would be public until recently. I want to let you all know that I will be testifying at an oversight/informational committee hearing tomorrow morning (Friday). The hearing starts at 10am. I don't know what time I'll be speaking, but the entire hearing is dealing with campaign finance and disclosure so you may wish to listen to the entire hearing anyway. Also speaking is the Secretary of State, chair of the FPPC, Common Cause, California Clean Money Campaign, and myself as a representative of both Wolf PAC and Americans Take Action.

It is open to the public, so you can either be there in person, or watch/listen on livestream: http://sd26.senate.ca.gov/news/2015-12-07-senate-oversightinformational-hearing-campaign-finance-regulation-and-disclosure

If anyone can tape it please do.

And if anyone is considering getting involved with our current California campaign, you can sign up at http://cafreeact.com/volunteer_sign_up/.

That's the way to do it!

It has more exposure and subscribers. Since you're doing what Bernie wants, it's fitting

Thank you so much for all your hard work. You're changing the world! Truly

Maybe someone here can record it. I'll try but can't promise anything. I've never recorded online before

Knock 'em dead!

Signed petitions are started to come in. More people like you and we'll have this on the ballot!

You have played a part in saving democracy!

I know Alison will check and see your reply. She's obviously a little busy
