WhatIsWorking

Hi All

I wanted to address the ?? about OFA posted on an earlier OFA thread

In 2008 and 2012 OFA was a partisan electoral group whose sole purpose was to elect Barack Obama.

Today we are a 5013C non-partisan group that CANNOT work on electoral politics. We will retain that status after the President retires and hope he will join us in our community organizing efforts. We will no longer switch off the non profit status since we no longer need to get him elected.

Having said that several OFA volunteers are working on election politics with our “hats off”. We are volunteering on local elections, presidential elections and working on ballot initiatives, but our title is “engaged citizen” not OFA volunteer.

I am working on voter registration, and participating in delegate elections this weekend. Several other volunteers in Santa Rosa are registering voters, and calling for Hillary and Bernie.

If you would like to get involved with voter registration I would suggest you contact the local Democratic party or league of Women Voters.

If you would like to work on Hillary’s campaign in CA i have that contact info – send me an email whatisworking@gmail.com

Also – remember that although the official organization of OFA is not active in election politics – many of the OFA paid staff, volunteer staff, and OFA Fellows, will join candidates staff.

Just this week Jennifer Warner – National Field Director for OFA (#2 spot at HQ) stepped down to join the Hillary campaign.

In 2014 Sonoma County had an OFA Fellow who was hired by Tom Udall’s staff and he worked in NM for both Udall and Ben Ray Lujan. Having OFA Fellow on your resume still gets you in the door for on political campaigns.

Although the superb electoral organization and strategy we saw in 2008 and 2012 is no longer a part of OFA it lives on in the staff and volunteers that elected PBO twice.

If you live outside of CA, and can’t find anyone to work with, send me a note, I can see if my contacts can get you a name.

GOP Screams Lame Duck! President Obama Moves America Forward

Stephen Collinson: Obama Redefines The Lame Duck Presidency

At the time in his tenure when most presidents fret over their waning clout, Barack Obama is redefining the concept of the lame duck. His administration has been energized by his aggressive use of executive power. Some of the most hard-won achievements of his early years in office are beginning to pay off. And his political luck seems to be turning. With a term and a half behind him, Obama’s prospects are brighter than they have been for years. Though Republicans paint Obama’s glass as half full, and argued that the administration is overstating its record, that hasn’t rattled the man in the Oval Office.

Obama JayZ

The new sense of serenity in the White House solidified this week with figures showing that more than 16 million people have now signed up for health plans under Obamacare, the president’s top domestic achievement. That news came on the heels of booming jobs growth numbers and a tangible feeling that after years of slow recovery, things are looking up economically. The unemployment rate, at 5.5%, is at its lowest point since May 2008, before the Great Recession. And the U.S. economy is in much better shape than most of its rivals in the developed world. The White House believes that its initiatives on community college funding, the president’s moves to regulate the Internet and actions to reshape the immigration system are delivering a political dividend,

potus-chair

reasoning that many Americans are happy to see gridlock broken and the president taking action, a factor that might be partly reflected in Obama’s better poll numbers. Obama, meanwhile, more relaxed than ever. He’s speaking about race more freely than any time since he became president, notably in his speech on the 50th anniversary of the Selma civil rights marches earlier this month. And the White House counts a climate accord with China and a visit to India earlier this year as big wins for its strategy of rebalancing foreign policy towards Asia. The GOP, for its part, is learning what the White House found out years ago — that winning the Senate last year, and with it control of both chambers of Congress, brings its own problems.
