WOMEN'S VOICES, WOMEN'S VOTES
WOMEN’S VOICES, WOMEN’S VOTES was a live, star-studded virtual celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Special musical guests like Sunday Iris, Jesi Naomi, Frances Mann, Chloe Brandii, the Bidwells, and Dominique Soares, to name just a few, performed onstage at the historic Chico Women's Club for a livestream to the Butte Democrats YouTube Channel. Hosted by Samantha Shaner, the two-hour show also featured virtual appearances by top elected officials around Butte County. This was a virtual packed stage of entertainment and up-to-the minute news from the Democratic Party, and we raised nearly $6,000 for the 2020 campaign.
If you missed it...it is still up on our YouTube Channel.
When Women Vote, Democrats Win!
2020 Election results...a message from our Butte County Chair
Congratulations to us all - Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be the next President and Vice President of the United States of America!
I am confident that like me, you feel that a heavy weight has been lifted by knowing that our democracy has survived. Take a deep breath and enjoy this historic turning point – Donald Trump is leaving the White House!
Make no mistake, there is much work ahead, but for now – all eyes on Georgia. We need the Senate to get the work done at the speed that is required. There are two Senate runoffs in Georgia on January 5, 2021:
Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff must win for Democrats to control the chamber.
In Butte County, we had mixed results. In Chico City Council, we lost our progressive majority. A big thank you to Mayor Ann Schwab and Randall Stone for their service and for putting up a good campaign fight along with Lauren Kohler, Curtis Pahlka and Rich Ober. We added two Latinx Democrats to the Gridley City Council, Catalina Sanchez and Angel Calderon. Incumbent
Janet Goodson will again serve on the Oroville City Council. In School Boards, Caitlin Dalby won in Chico, Sharon Nilsson on the Oroville Elementary School Board, and Tracell Biddle-Lewis in the Thermalito District. Michael Worley and Tom Lando retained their seats on the Chico Area Recreation and Park District board. Congratulations to all!
Audrey Denney ran a phenomenal race against Republican incumbent LaMalfa. We are extremely proud of her professional campaign. A big thank you to Jim Henson who ran in Assembly District 3, and Elizabeth Betancourt in Assembly District 1. All three ran in difficult red regions and were unable to
unseat the Republican incumbents, but we are grateful and proud of their efforts.
We staffed two busy offices in Butte County, one in Chico and the second in Oroville. Volunteers contributed more money, wrote more postcards, engaged in social media, and made more calls than ever before.
Thank you for all your hard work and dedication; let’s keep going!
