Jim Desmond Needs Your Help — County Service Response by Friday

Fellow Republicans,

We need you. Applications are due Friday July 31 by 5 p.m. (by e-mail ok).

Nathan Fletcher and his Democrat leaders want to get rid of Prop 13 and your Republican values. The County redistricting commission will impact the face of the County Supervisors and their $6.4 billion budget. This will impact freedom, the Second Amendment, abortion clinics, churches, and yes, YOUR TAXES!

BUT – you can stop them by making sure the redistricting is done fair. It’s easy to stop them as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Commit to a short service period (only a few meetings) to complete service by 8/31/21 the latest.
  2. Apply to be selected by FRIDAY July 31st by 5 pm (very simple application)
  3. Be selected by the random lottery selection process

Yes, the more friends we have in the application pool the better chance we have to win!

Those commissioners will meet to decide on six more to round out a 14-member commission.
