Dem Donkey

Are there any CA-11 folks on my friends-list?

Do you live in California's Eleventh Congressional District? Know anyone who does? The district is a bit odd-shaped (like so many). It includes areas around 680 from Danville through the Dublin-Pleasanton area, the southeast tip of Santa Clara County (Morgan Hill), and an arm that goes out to Tracy, Lodi, and Manteca.

In any case, the excellent House Rep from CA-11, Jerry McNerney has started his ballot paperwork. He is looking to submit signatures in lieu of a filing fee -- candidates have the option of substituting signatures for money. I am generally in favor of anything that roots a campaign in broad citizen support, rather than large amounts of cash.

If you or anyone you know would like to send in their signature, you can find the petition form here.
