She challenged Jane Harman for the seat twice, and made very impressive showings against the powerfully entrenched, incredibly wealthy and long-standing (and hawkish) Harman. Now Harman is leaving her seat, and although Marcy at first was reluctant to run, the absence of a real progressive, anti-war candidate and the urging of her many, many supporters convinced her to once again stand up for US - the working people, the people who want peace, who want jobs, who want a green economy, who want healthcare instead of warfare. As a high-school English teacher at Crenshaw High in LA, she is on the front lines of the attack against unions and public employees, and we are so fortunate she has agreed to stand up once again and speak up for us and for all Americans.
Marcy will be announcing her candidacy tomorrow in Torrance at 10am. I am so honored to be singing for her campaign kickoff once again, and I will do my best to try and broadcast at least audio and maybe even video if I get super-lucky. I'll update tomorrow, and if successful, I will be streaming right here on the blog.
When: Saturday, Feb. 26, 10 am
Where: In front of Fox Drug of Torrance (Old Town), 1327 El Prado, Torrance, 90501
Please join me in supporting Marcy. No matter where you live, a true progressive in Congress is desperately needed and can make a difference - maybe even the difference.
