Mariko's Missive, Vol. 24

October 2, 2014

Dear Friends:

Fall is in the air—but campaigns are heating up.

The November 4th election is around-the-corner. Many people and propositions are vying for your vote.

For me, this cycle is a little different—the first one in a dozen years that I am personally not on a ballot. But I want you to know that I have no plans to retire. As I wrap-up 40 years in public service and 20 years in Davis, I hope you’ll join me at a small event to mark that milestone (Sayonara Event with Mariko Yamada), Sunday, October 12, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A Street, Davis, CA 95616. I’d love to see you there!

In the meantime, until the last day of my Assembly term—Sunday, November 30, 2014—we’ll be working hard, serving our constituents, and pledging an open and orderly transition with my Assembly successor. We’ll also be working to support Proposition 1, the $7.5B water bond, which presents an important opportunity to secure California’s water future and protect our precious Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

I also want to invite you to meet Fairfield City Councilmember & Solano County Board of Supervisors candidate Pam Bertani at a fund- and friend-raiser jointly hosted by Solano County Supervisor Skip Thomson, Sunday, October 19, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. @ 549 Topeka Lane, Vacaville, CA 95687.

Thank you for the great privilege of serving you in the California Assembly these past six years. On to November 4th!
