Pac for a Change Opens Loal Campaign

Former U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer’s Campaign for a Change, a Democratic pac that aims to win back the House of Representatives and Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, brought its effort to Santa Barbara recently for an event at the home of Barbara Greenleaf.

Co-chairs Greenleaf and Deborah Levinson brought together 40 local residents to learn about the pac’s strategy and plans for the November election.
“Although we’re national in scope, we’re starting in California with key races for the House of Representatives," said Leannah Bradley, the event’s featured speaker and senior strategy adviser to Pac for a Change.

"We’ve developed several ads already for our Resist and Replace campaign that have garnered hundreds of thousands of hits on social media," she said. "When it comes to the Senate, we are focusing on 12 states where Democratic incumbents are being challenged or we can pick up a seat.”

The highlight of the event was a phone call from Boxer, a 24-year veteran of the Senate, who made a plea to stand up for the environment, women and families, and to return decency to government.

“Pac for a Change is a focused, targeted project that makes me feel empowered in a chaotic national political situation,” said Levinson.

“Enough with the hand-wringing; it’s time to get down to business,” Greenleaf said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
