I'd like to reach out to any of you Kossacks from California's 31st Congressional District for information. Feel free to add your understanding of the communities, issues, etc.
This isn't going to be much of a diary. You can add anything you want about California's 31st Congressional District. Keep in mind this diary is just for information purposes. Let's not get too carried away with whether or not any of these Knowledge Democrats information gathering diaries mean the Congressional districts in questions are winnable by Democrats or not. Were here to assess districts across the country, no matter how "deep reed" or "red" or Republican-occupied they are.
What issues directly affect people in California's 31st Congressional District? My colleague Augustin and I are working on the Knowledge Democrats project and I've started working on a wiki page for California's 31st Congressional congressional district in order to assist in our long term efforts to promote progressive candidates in that district, whether at the local, state or federal level. We understand California's 31st Congressional District may in fact be trending more toward Democratic territory (more registered Democrats than Republicans) due to redistricting and we're looking to reach out to any Kossacks, Democrats or progressives in the area. It helps for long-term planning.
We also know that the current representative of the district is Congressman Gary Miller.
Also, taking politics out of the equation, let others know if you've been to the 31st Congressional District and can point out some good restaurants, venues and places to spend time in there.
So far, I only have the basic information. What issues should be documented? What important links / articles / information should be added to the wiki page?
