Election reflections and Camp Resolution

Happy election hangover. 

If the NYT’s Needle of Death is any indicator, the Republicans’ much anticipated “red wave” did not materialize this year. 

In fact, other than a GOP rout in Florida (which we should all come to expect at this point), Democrats appear to have kept their hold on the US Senate. They can thank progressives for that, with John Fetterman winning the Pennsylvania seat. Beyond that, the Squad added four new members in Congress, and four state governments are now in complete Democratic control

Some folks like to get their election results in a timely manner. But not Californians. 

Nevertheless, we take a moment to discuss the wins, losses and remaining questions for both California and Sacramento as the results continue to roll in

What does it portend for us if Republican car salesman Roger Niello defeats Jaclyn Moreno in the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors race? What does a potential majority-women city council mean for the city?  

And–now that the elections are over–what’s next for Sacramento? 

We’re joined by our friends Mack and Joyce to discuss the wonderful work being done at Camp Resolution, and why we need to defend it at all costs. Our unhoused neighbors are fighting back against violent sweeps, and they could use your help. 

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
