1. Because Jerry has over 20 years of experience developing renewable energy across California. If he wins, he'll use his expertise to create new jobs, protect the environment, and strengthen our national security through a Clean Energy Innovation Plan for America.
2. Because it's not just that Pombo is an awful Republican. Jerry McNerney is a good Democrat, with the courage to stand up for his values. Jerry's not running on tired campaign slogan of "I'm not the other guy." (But we are pretty happy he's not the other guy.)
Reasons 3 thru 6 after the jump . . .
5. Because when human beings are forced to work in sweatshop conditions that lead to prostitution and forced abortion, Jerry McNerney will stand up to stop these abuses. Well of course. Why would that even be in this list of 6? Because as chairman of the House Resources committee, Pombo has stifled proposals to stop these conditions in the Mariana Islands, a US territory where the workers don't have the benefits of US citizenship, and the government was represented by Jack Abramoff.
6. Because it is easy! You can make calls to the voters in Jerry's district with your home phone or cell phone by signing up at the campaign website. You can listen to voters' concerns and let them know that Jerry McNerney will develop new energy sources that will bring jobs to San Joaquin County and the Bay Area and improve America's economy, environment and national security from coast to coast.
