    the Inland Empire, of which the 29th is a part. Drought is always a concern, particularly in the longer term.

    Any particular template you're working from that you want input on, or are you looking for what first comes to mind?

      is obviously not, since it contains a lot of coastline, too. Camp Pendleton issues, perhaps? Whether to designate surfing site The Trestles as historically significant seems to be hot right now, I'm embarrassed to say.

    •  unemployment, drought (0+ / 0-)

      Thanks a lot. I am looking for any input you may have, nothing specifically. What you gave me is a good start.

      Obviously, people often (mostly?) vote according to national issues but in many districts local issues play a big role. Thus I am fishing for information, to help you get organised for the next elections.

    •  Unemployment high in Inland Empire? (0+ / 0-)

      I read on Wikipedia that unemployment in 2010 reached 15%.  That's INSANE.  I'm assuming the Employment Development Department (EDD) also makes the process more difficult as they are bombarded with claim forms to file and address, as well as the lousiest IT system for a public agency in California.

      I think what needs to happen is real business outreach and additional support for those in the Inland Empire.  

      I'm apart of the Knowledge Democrats group with Augustin and it's really good you're sharing this information.  

      Right now input is really key for our group's cause because we want to make sure in the build up for the case of progressive causes is backed up with facts and practical solutions.  Our goals are to not rule out any part of the U.S., conservative or liberal, as it really matters how are people in different communities communicated with.  That's something we'll figure out down the line.

      Right now, information is key so the more information you provide on the Inland Empire and other places in California that don't normally get covered on Daily Kos or in the news, the better we'll figure out what to do from there.
