Speaker from McClintock’s office in EDH May 15

“How you can make a difference in the 2014 elections?”

Norman Gonzales, community outreach director for Tom McClintock, will speak on Wednesday, May 15 at 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express in El Dorado Hills.

Local elections matter in the United States. We are inundated by the news each day about every move made by politicians in Washington, D.C. and Sacramento. However, many of the decisions local politicians make have a more immediate impact on our lives.

Whether it’s the latest increase in water rates or land use near our homes, we are more likely to feel the effects faster and with greater intensity than much of the legislation debated in Washington, D. C. or Sacramento. Politicians that make these local decisions often move on to state and federal political positions. Local politics is an effective place to focus our energies to change the direction of our country.

Gonzales will explain how “We the people” can greatly impact our government through local political activism. There are programs in neighboring counties that are working well. We can adapt these programs to make productive changes in El Dorado County.

Gonzales oversees outreach activities for McClintock. He created and manages the congressman’s Internship and Service Academy Nomination programs.

He holds a degree in government from California State University, Sacramento. During his time at CSUS, he was vice-chairman of the College Republicans Club. As vice-chairman of that group he organized on campus speaking appearances including the high-profile appearance of Ambassador Alan Keyes, during his presidential bid. Dr. Keyes is an economist that strongly supports the conservative principles of constitutionally empowered government, fiscal responsibility and free markets.
