Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, CA), who represents 3rd District Northern California communities in Colusa, Glenn, Lake, Sacramento, Solano, Sutter, Yolo, and Yuba counties, will hold campaign events in several locations tomorrow for Election Day.
“We do not always agree with Garamendi’s politics, but we do not doubt his commitment to preserving the mission at Travis Air Force Base. It’s vital to Solano County that Garamendi’s work continues.” - Fairfield Daily Republic
"He has established himself as a strong backer of the military, a voice on environmental concerns and an expert on water issues,” the Enterprise wrote.
“While both candidates for the Third District Congressional seat are aligned with one of the two major parties, one has proven an ability to vote independently of the party line if it was what he felt best for his constituents and the country," The Reporter wrote.
A recent survey of likely voters in California’s 3rd Congressional District shows John Garamendi to be a strong candidate who is poised to win re-election in November. Garamendi leads his Republican opponent by 12-points (46 percent to 34 percent) – his candidacy is strengthened by a solid base of Democratic voters, and he benefits from a significant gender gap as he holds a large lead with women.
"We are in the midst of a drought and will certainly face many more in the years ahead. It took extensive work from Governor Brown and his staff and bipartisan cooperation in the legislature to move us forward. Yesterday, in an attempt to help California meet our water needs, the California legislature overwhelmingly passed a $7.5 billion water bond. It makes investments in water infrastructure, and it does not include funding for the twin tunnels boondoggle," Congressman Garamendi said.
"Part of my job is to let you strut your stuff, to let you share what services you are offering to this community," Congressman Garamendi told the attendees. "Lake County has demonstrated that they can effectively work collaboratively to help. Lives are being made better, because these groups are going the extra mile to make a difference."
