*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***
I was really touched this morning by an email written by one of my supporters to his friends and family. Spreading the word about my campaign makes all the difference.
We are just two days away from Election Day. Your help is critical for us to make it across the finish line. So, I humbly ask you to email to your friends and family and let them know some of the reasons why you are voting for me on Tuesday, June 5th.
I’d like to share my supporter’s email as a token of appreciation. And I hope to do the same with yours. Will you write an email of support to your contacts?
“Friends and Family-
I will keep this short.
On Thursday, May 17th the New York Times published a Nicholas Kristof opinion piece detailing the gruesome murder of four San Bernardino people, including a woman and two children, and the ensuing framing of a black male named Kevin Cooper, who now awaits his fate on death row.
Kevin Cooper is not an angel, but he’s not a murderer either–and there is evidence to prove it. But neither Gov. Jerry Brown or appointed Attorney General Xavier Bacerra will pursue new DNA testing of the evidence that was illegally tainted and planted to frame Cooper.
I never send these emails and rarely ask friends and family to support specific candidates, even the candidates for whom I work. But today I’m emailing asking that you cast your vote for Dave Jones for Attorney General.
Dave Jones has demanded that Gov. Brown use new DNA technology to test the evidence. Jones has said the “criminal justice is a human system and humans make mistakes. … I think it’s quite possible that someone could be put to death by the state who was wrongly convicted. We’ve had a number of exonerations on Death Row.”
I’d go a step further by saying the criminal justice system is a flawed and biased system that disproportionately imprisons and takes the lives of people of color.
Single-issue voters frustrate me to no end, but in this race I am one. Please vote for Dave Jones to save an innocent life.
Thanks for your time.”
Please let us know if you will also be sending an email to your friends and family to show your support. And don’t forget to share your email with us so we can keep the momentum going.
Thank you for getting out the vote!
