Hello/Goodbye Party in Benicia for U.S. Reps. Garamendi & Thompson

You are invited to say hello to John Garamendi, our new US Representative, and to offer thanks and goodbye to our longtime US Rep. Mike Thompson

Hello/Goodbye Party – Sunday, June 26

Mark your calendar to attend a Hello and Goodbye Summer Social on Sunday June 26, from 2 to 4.  We will welcome our new U.S. Rep. John Garamendi and say goodbye to Benicia’s longtime U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson.  It will be held right here in Benicia, at the Veterans Memorial Hall, 1150 First Street, across from the Gazebo.  (See info about tickets below.)

Both Thompson and Garamendi will remain in Congress – the change is due to a redrawing of California Congressional Districts.

The party is also a fundraiser for our fellow Democratic Club the United Democrats of Southern Solano County. This is a great opportunity to connect with these important legislators and our fellow Democrats. Ticket information below, purchase your ticket(s) here.

NOVEMBER 18, 2020
Dear Friend,

Coronavirus case rates are spiking in our district and across our nation, at a time when people would usually be making plans to see family and friends and travel for the holidays. We must all be doing everything we can to keep ourselves, our families and our communities safe from this virus. That means scaling down our celebrations and staying home for the holidays. I know this is hard to do right now, particularly because we are all tired of the pandemic. But it’s what we need to do to get through this together.

To help you navigate this stressful time and answer your questions about staying safe, this Thursday, November 19 at 7pm PT, I am holding my seventeenth Virtual Town Hall. We will be joined by George Rutherford, MD, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UC San Francisco and Dr. Karen Relucio, Deputy Director of Napa County Health and Human Services-Public Health Officer, for a discussion about the surging Coronavirus case rate. You will need to register for this event by emailing your name to [email protected]. Shortly before the event you will receive an email with instructions on how to join and we will also simulcast the event on my Facebook page.

I hope you will join me for this Virtual Town Hall. Remember that you can always call my office if you need immediate assistance.

I am contacting all the leaders of the activist organizations in District 5, covering Napa, Sonoma, Lake Contra Cost and Solano counties.

Please send this invitation to your group of activists and have them RSVP to, go to events on September 19th
