Tight Race for San Jose City Council

Local 21-endorsed Tim Orozco is in the June 23 run-off to fill the North San Jose seat on the City Council.  The purpose of the Special Election is to fill the seat left vacant with Labor ally Kansen Chu, who was elected to State Assembly in November.  We need volunteers to remind District 4 voters to cast a ballot in this crucial Special Election.  Voter turnout will be low and most will cast their votes by mail, so we're already working hard to reach out to voters.

We'll hold the gift card raffle again to encourage Members to volunteer, but this time we're also raffling off two tickets to see Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai speak at San Jose State University in June.  Malala survived an attack from the Taliban because she advocates for education of girls.
