BUTTE COUNTY BUZZ
Now is the Time to Join the Fight To Save Chico!
At the January 3rd City Council meeting, our "conservative" city council gave the go-ahead to the Valley's Edge development proposal - the largest development in the history of Chico. If built, it would add the equivalent of Gridley to the south eastern part of Chico stretching from Stilson Canyon to the Skyway and far into the foothills. ( 2770 homes, many of them very large and expensive, on acre size lots.)
The Butte County Party has taken a formal stand on this development, as have many of our longtime allies, such as Butte Environmental Council and the Sierra Club. We are all strongly opposed to Valley's Edge and circulated referendum petitions against it. The Referendum was a success!
Many thanks to all 284 people who worked hard to collect the needed number of signatures. A vote on Valley's edge will now take place next Spring in the Primary election. Lets do this. Lets stop this inappropriate development.

Our city is at a crossroads. One path leads to a picturesque community with small-town vibes, bike and walking paths, clean air and open roads. The other path leads to a sprawling, noisy, congested mega-city with suburbs stretching out in all directions, traffic congestion, air and noise pollution. Lets Keep Chico, Chico.
The Butte County Democratic Headquarters on Esplanade is closed. We will open a new HQ in summer 2024. Stay tuned!
The 2024 Blue wave is coming, meanwhile, we have a lot of work to do registering voters and doing Democratic outreach prior to the next election. Canvassing is in progress!
Check out the "Linktree" here for Actions needing your help right now including voter registration on campus and current phone banks.
There are a lot of "Down ticket" races set for Butte County.
Thus far, Monica McDaniel is running in Chico Council District 3, and Bryce Goldstein is planning a run in District 7 and there are interested, well qualified folks for City Council District 5. District 1 needs a candidate, but there is plenty of time for someone to jump in. Please contact David Welch if you are interested.
The District 4 Supervisor race has a great Democratic candidate running against Kimmelshue in Joanna Warrens.
We have no Democrats running in Senate District 1, but have a wonderful candidate, Aaron Draper, running in Assembly District 3. Rose Yee, small business owner and progressive from Redding, is running in CD1.
This is an exciting election season!
