PPA Statement on TJ Cox Endorsement

cropped-patterson-peace-straight1.png
The Patterson Progressive Alliance was proud to endorse TJ Cox for the 10th Congressional District race against Jeff Denham, and we were disappointed to learn that he will instead be running in the 21st district. TJ earned the support of our group and several other groups throughout the 10th for his progressive values and genuine character. Our support for TJ stands, and we wish him well in his new race, but our focus remains on Patterson and the 10th district.

The PPA is not currently endorsing any candidate for the 10th district, and we look forward to discussing this further at our next meeting on March 14. Our biggest goal remains to flip the House, and with TJ in the 21st and a Democrat in the 10th, we’ll be two steps closer to doing just that. We will continue to work to unseat Jeff Denham, and we’ll be canvassing again on March 18 toward that goal.

Patterson Poetry!

Wow!  This is overwhelming and humbling to the entire group.  Our first event that we organized was the Valentine’s Day Love-In.  The point was to be very public and announce to the city of Patterson that we are here and we still believe in peace, love, and unity in a time of great political turmoil and differences.

Our event, which you can read more about by clicking this link, was a huge success in our eyes.  We had a mix of teachers, board members, city council, children, and town elders come out to share in our message.

Even more amazing than that is the fact that we were contacted by a resident that sent us this picture of her poem entitled “Patterson Valentine’s Day ‘Love-In’ 2017” that was recently published by the Modesto Poets Corner.  This is beyond what we had expected.  I love that our event to spread love and unity inspired someone to want to write about the event in a creative and artistic fashion.

So thank you Nancee Kinkaid Maya for sharing this with us…and while nothing is set in stone yet, it is safe to say we are looking to make the Love-In more than just a singular event for Patterson!
