Helen Butler, GCPA Executive Director, Statement On Election Integrity In Georgia Primary

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Helen Butler, executive director of the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda (GCPA), issued the following statement about election integrity during the Georgia Primary on May 24, 2022:

"We are still assessing the impact of the numerous problems Georgia voters reported across the state, and will provide a formal briefing in the near future. Today, based on reports from coordinators and coalition members across the state, we can say that several locations opened late, machines were broken, and we had reports of voters receiving error messages. A few precincts, including Savannah High, reported that machines were not operating for the first few hours and they didn't provide provisional ballots until after 9 a.m.

"We received several complaints about voters who got the incorrect voting precinct on MVP. Once voters found out they received erroneous precinct information, rather than have a system to accommodate those voters, some voters were sent to another wrong polling place. The mix-up appears to be related to an inadequate amount of time to provide voters with correct precinct information between the acceptance of redistricting maps and the date of the primaries. Elections officials anticipated this problem and requested to change the date of the primaries, however, the Georgia legislature decided not to reschedule.

"Details matter. To protect the integrity of the election we must give election officials and staff enough time to disseminate correct information. The only way for every eligible voter to cast a ballot that counts is for them to receive accurate information from their board of elections. Voters have jobs, families and other responsibilities and should not have to travel from precinct to precinct in search of a place to vote. Instead of focusing on ways to make voting harder, our legislature and elected officials should make voting easier and ensure that we have fail-safe backup systems for people who are provided inaccurate information by the board of elections.

"Another issue we encountered was people who changed their names on their drivers license but the name wasn't automatically updated in the system. One person that had this issue went home to get their passport but with the strict ID requirements, some voters don't have an alternate acceptable form of ID and others don't have time or transportation to go home for more ID. We must make sure that the automatic voter registration system is automatic.

"Clearly, as we progress to the General Election, Georgia officials need to spend less time thinking of ways to restrict voting and more time focused on protecting the integrity of our elections by providing reliable information to voters, maintaining working voting machines, opening all precincts on time, and improving systems to ensure that democracy works for all voters."

The New York Young Elite Association hosted a fundraiser for Tom Suozzi

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- The New York Young Elite Association (NYYEA) hosted a fundraiser for New York State Governor candidate and Congressman Tom Suozzi at the Penn Club on March 30th. Over 50 attendees spanning political, business, and academic sectors gathered together and discussed with Suozzi his views and insights on political and social issues.

Suozzi thanked those in attendance and emphasized that he would be improving matters such as public safety, taxes, and education.

"My biggest number one issue is to make people feel safe in New York City," Suozzi said, with immediate and booming applause from the audience.

Suozzi was elected as a congressman of New York's 3rd district in 2016. He was previously the Mayor of Glen Cove, New York, in 1993 and was elected Nassau County Executive in 2001, a position previously held by Republicans for 30 years.

During his tenure as the County Executive of Nassau County -- which is more significant than 11 states and has the 12th largest police department in the country - it had the lowest crime rate of all communities with over 500,000 people. The current New York City Police Commissioner, Keechant Sewell, was a police officer promoted by Suozzi when she was serving in the Nassau County Police Department.

Suozzi also turned down New York City Mayor Eric Adams to become his Deputy Mayor.

"I'm not going to be your Deputy Mayor," Suozzi said. "I'm running for Governor... I can do more to help you from the Governor I can be than as your deputy mayor."

Suozzi also said he is willing to work with everybody, regardless of their political affiliation. He also pointed out that the recently passed infrastructure bill was due to bipartisan efforts, a belief he strongly champions. He also supports tax reduction.

"I will always be a commonsense Democrat," Suozzi said. "I will work with anybody. I will work with Democrats or Republicans, and I will work with progressives, I will work with moderates, I will work with conservatives, I will work with anybody.

"I won't abandon my values, but I will work with anybody to solve problems that surely help people."

NYYEA President John JD Liu said the current downward trend of public safety and hate crimes against the Asian community is a priority of immediate attention. Liu also said he would back Suozzi for his governorship bid, which would also benefit the overall interest of the local Chinese community.

About The New York Young Elite Association (NYYEA):

NYYEA is a nonprofit organization that seeks to assemble and serve as a platform for the young elites across various industries and fields. It aims to facilitate the exchange of ideas, consolidate resources and in turn, heighten the positive impact the group can achieve collectively.

Lincoln County Voters Triumph as Board of Elections Scraps Plans to Close 7 Polling Locations

LINCOLNTON, Ga. -- After several attempts by the Lincoln County Board of Elections to reduce the number of polling places in Lincoln County Georgia, the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda and other voting rights groups were elated that the voice of the voters was heard and their efforts to stop the board from closing seven locations to create one was successful.

Rev. Denise Freeman, a local civil and human rights activist who led the efforts to collect signatures from voters on two separate petitions said, "Ï would love to be able to celebrate the hard work of Lincoln County voters to stop the board from consolidating seven polling locations into one but I can't. There's still work to do to make sure that every eligible voter in Lincoln County is able to cast a ballot that counts in the upcoming Midterm Elections."

The Lincoln County Board of Elections voted 3-0 against closing polling places on Wednesday.

Helen Butler, executive director of the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda said, "The voters made sure their voices were heard. They knocked on doors and collected the required signatures for the petition to stop the plan to reduce the polling places to one. Needless to say, the board pivoted and announced an alternative plan to reduce the locations to three, nullifying the petition."

Talking to a group of about 300 women attending the Black Women's Roundtable National Summit in Washington, DC Butler continues, "They were playing games with the peoples' right to vote. But, in less than a week we were able to assist the Lincoln County voters in collecting signatures to stop the second plan, and we were ready to go a third time but the board decided to keep seven polling locations. This is indicative of power voters have by being engaged in the process. The people spoke and elected officials had to listen."

The petition presented with the requisite names in December reads, "We, the undersigned Lincoln County registered voters do hereby object to a proposal by the Lincoln County Board of Elections to close our current polling locations and to create a single polling location for all Lincoln County voters."

The petition drive was coordinated by the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda, Common Cause Georgia, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, Black Voters Matter, Southern Poverty Law Center and Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. Local activists and community members helping to coordinate are: Rev. Denise Freeman, civil/human rights activist, Bishop Willie Jackson, Christ Centered Outreach Ministry, and Rev. Christopher Johnson, Augusta Interfaith Coalition.

Tim Pool Highlights Craig X a Trump Supporting Anti-Establishment Republican Running for Congress

WHEELING, W.Va. -- Tuesday the 18th in a YouTube post about the Candidate visiting Pool's Castle. Tim Pool runs a popular podcast, more popular than CNN. He has the power to help promote an unknown Congressional candidate like the one running in his District, Craig Roberts. Recently, Tim has been speaking about helping candidates like Craig in the primaries because Tim said if they did help in the primaries then there will only be Establishment Candidates to support in the General Election.

Trump also agree to support SMART Republicans to specifically get rid of 13 RINOs. Candidate Craig Roberts happened to live in one of those Districts. It is being renamed this year to District 2 in West Virginia because of the State's shrinking population they lost another Congressional Seat. Craig Roberts is now running against two establishment millionaire Republicans, and he is a working-class candidate. He runs an online Judeo-Christian Church called Temple 420 where he recently did a 7-week online Bible study about the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse. He was heavily censored and although very proud of the work it didn't build up a following because of censorship.

Pool is creating an online beef with the candidate. Roberts went their offices, which were listed on Apple maps as, "Tim Pool Cast Castle" to leave his information with Security that was non-existent. After being invited into the house by "Ben" and explaining he was not with James O'Keefe and his group he asked to leave his info and Ben insisted he speak to the guys in the studio. There was a brief encounter with Luke Rudowski where Luke said, "Leave your info with Ben."

"As I was writing down my information, when someone or several people started calling my name multiple times." The candidate claims he knocked on the door and the video shows Ben admitting he waved Craig into the house. "I was never more than 10 feet from the door and always in the presence of Ben. The only time I stepped away from the kitchen counter where I was writing my info for the show's producer was when they called my name."

Tim Pool's and the Candidates stories differ. The candidate claims he stepped away from the kitchen counter to see who was calling his name and the moment he turned around there was giant SRL camera on a gib in his face and was confronted by a guy named Chris making it look as if he had just walked in the house and was wandering around aimlessly without being invited in by Ben. The candidate says, "Ben invited me in, I politely explained myself and Ben gave me a pen and paper to write my info on. They are making their viewers believe I broke in for clickbait, but I am happy for the publicity I was not seeking."

"Most of my donations have been for $4.20" said the Congressional candidate. "I want to serve the country, but it is hard to raise money when you are an unknown person. I thought Tim could help."

The candidate has been using social media to build a following but is continually banned and censored for his unpopular beliefs. He's anti-vaxx mandates and pro-marijuana. "I produced shows for Cali-Plug Studio prior to the plandemic and we had an armed guard with an audience a millionth the size of Pool's. It was my intention to speak to their security and there was none, so Tim's video accusing me of breaking and entering is a lie, clickbait. I was trying to leave my info not be a part of his world."

"When Glenn Beck had me on CNN there was security that I had to pass through," claimed the candidate. "I have known about Luke for years from his films, but this Pool character," the candidate chimed on stating he hadn't heard of Tim until he recently had Joe Rogan and Alex Jones on his show. "I am in films with Joe Rogan and Alex Jones. Joe was at Temple 420 the very first time I preached the Word." The candidate from West Virginia claims to have a lot of weird encounters with celebrities and has written several books. "Joe, Eddie Bravo and producer Kevin Booth all came to hear me preach my first time on Hollywood Blvd. and I absolutely sucked!"

The candidate concluded, "Tim Pool seems to be trying to increase his audience with a clickbait video about me making himself a victim like everyone on the Left. He really is a Lefty from the research I've done. My goal was to raise money at CraigX.com. I need $800 more dollars in tax-deductible donations to qualify for the primary. I appreciate everyone's love and support for my candidacy. Thank you very much and God bless America."

Janet D. Foster Announces Campaign for California Assembly in Newly Formed District for the Greater Long Beach Area

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Janet D. Foster, elected member of the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee representing Assembly District 70, political advocate and healthcare leader, today announced her intention to run for California Assembly representing the newly drawn district in the greater Long Beach area that likely includes Long Beach, Signal Hill, Catalina Island and parts of Carson.

Foster, a resident of Long Beach for the past 18 years, has been involved in local, state and national initiatives

for non-partisan organizations, as well as platform issues for the Democratic Party. As a representative of the Democratic Central Committee, Foster collaborated with multiple housing advocacy groups, including CA YIMBY, to lobby lawmakers on solutions to California's many affordable housing issues. Her professional experience is centered in the healthcare industry, where she has held leadership positions in multi-regional medical groups, hospitals and within national health plans, making her well-versed as a supporter of single-payer healthcare access as a human right.

"The pandemic has exposed many gaps in how our state government responds to local small businesses and entrepreneurs, educators, frontline workers and ordinary citizens in need during times of crisis," Foster said. "I think we can do better, and I plan to be a vocal leader who presents innovative ideas that make economic sense in addressing the many challenges the great state of California is facing."

Beyond healthcare and housing initiatives, Foster plans to lead efforts addressing the economy to ensure job creation, more opportunities for small businesses to thrive, and fair and equitable wages proportionate to the cost of living in the state. She will also lead the way on quality-of-life issues affected by climate change; protecting vulnerable children and adults; public safety and common-sense law enforcement reform; education with real funding equity for public schools; and aiding senior citizens and veterans.

"I am running for the California Assembly because our district is in need of a strong voice that will work in Sacramento to combat housing inflation and contribute real solutions to address the worst homeless crisis our country has ever seen," she said. "Views and perspectives like mine have been missing in public policy, we must have the ability to address our economy at the same time we make decisions on social issues."

In addition to her professional career, Foster has also dabbled in freelance journalism and podcasting. Her self-named podcast, The Janet Foster Show ( https://janetdfoster.com/podcast/ ), provided a platform for her to interview guests covering a diverse list of topics including current events, social issues, and politics.

Foster earned an MBA with an emphasis in Finance and Economics from Saint Mary's College of California and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from the University of South Florida.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva Raises over $1.2 Million for Reelection Campaign – $1M on hand

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan. 7, 2022 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced today that his campaign for his reelection has raised over $1.25 million. Sheriff Villanueva has just under $1M on hand and raised over $900k in 2021. Sheriff Villanueva's strong fundraising lead has come from thousands of donors across LA County.

With a strong fundraising lead and strong name recognition Sheriff Villanueva is in a strong position in his bid for reelection. Additionally, the Sheriff's internal campaign polls indicate that to date none of his opponents have attained name recognition while Sheriff Villanueva is just points away from an outright victory in the upcoming June primary.

Sheriff Villanueva is the first Spanish speaking Sheriff to hold the office in one hundred years and first Democratic Sheriff in 138 years. Villanueva was elected in 2018 on a campaign of "reform, rebuild and restore." Once in office he established the first of its kind policy to ban deputy "gangs," equipped all deputies with body worn cameras, established a wage theft task force, banned transfers to ICE, and raised standards for internal promotions, new hires, and senior command staff. As a result, Villanueva's Sheriff Department has the most diverse senior command and on patrol staff in the history of the Department.

In 2021 Sheriff Villanueva's innovative efforts to address homelessness in collaboration with private and government agencies irritated the county's political establishment. The work of the Sheriff's Homeless Outreach Services Team (HOST) interfered with the political elite's cash cow - homeless outreach and services by actually placing homeless in shelters and cleaning public spaces.

Sheriff Villanueva's campaign expects to report even stronger fundraising numbers in 2022. The campaign's own internal polling and the funds raised at this early date suggest the unhappiness of Los Angeles County voters with the Board of Supervisors negligence in grappling with crime and rising homelessness.

The Sheriff's campaign director Javier Gonzalez said, "The public is desperate for solutions to out-of-control homelessness and crime. The three card Monte game of distraction against the Sheriff by the political establishment has failed. We will win in June."

Gonzalez added, "The political elite will regret listening to their woke, well off, privileged staff instead of listening to the concerns of immigrant communities, working class African Americans, middle class homeowners, and small business owners who have borne the brunt of rising crime and out of control homelessness."

In the coming days Sheriff Villanueva will make his first announcement of endorsements and present his full election team.

Satan in Congress? This Congressional Candidate Says He’s an American Patriot

PALMDALE, Calif. -- Steve Hill, a former Marine, retired peace officer and self-described, part-time "activist comic" known as "Satan" is running for 27th congressional district to rid the region of political corruption. He explains he chose the "Satan" moniker as a symbol of rebellion against entrenched, overly-comfortable authority. He vows to work to get money out of politics and to ensure church and state never meet.

Hill's top goal is to reform the police and court system for people who are unable to fight for themselves. So, while he jokes about topics such as race, religion and politics, he knows it's really no laughing matter.

His run for congress is also well-timed in wake of a package of sweeping new police reforms that California Gov. Gavin Newsom recently signed.

"If we want the police to truly do their jobs, which is to protect the public, then we must hold those who are not doing that accountable," Hill says. "We must rid the nation of white supremacist nationalist gangs; the country is saturated and it must stop. We need to get to the bottom of the insurrection."

So, who is Hill? After the military, he pursued a career in the aerospace industry, and after seven years, he was ready for a change and had a desire to serve again. He decided to become a correctional officer and worked in two different maximum, security prisons. He was horrified by the conditions and crimes that occurred even within the prison walls, so he took a job as a middle school security supervisor. Little did he know that schools were nearly as dangerous. On multiple occasions, he was threatened by kids and parents too. Today, Hill runs a real estate appraisal business and is focused on this congressional run.

If elected, in addition to concentrating on police reform, Hill plans to foster respect for the constitution, and to advocate for immigration, education reform and voting rights. Hill knows that this is a tall order, but as a dedicated advocate for the powerless, he's up for the challenge.

"I want to shake things up," Hill says. "If I have to tell people that I'm the devil to get them to listen, then I'm okay with that; I'm the devil. I'm also an American patriot."

To emphasize his devotion to the people, and not the establishment, he will only take campaign donations from individuals. No corporate or union dollars will be accepted to fund this "power to the people" campaign.
