Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    Nevada Focus: Re-elect Nevada State House Representative John Oceguera

    Representative John Oceguera is the kind of candidate I love to support. From the Indigenous Democratic Network (INDN List):

    Representative Oceguera, an enrolled member of the Walker River Paiute Tribe, has spent his life serving the community as a firefighter and member of the IAFF. In 2008, he was named Assistant Fire Chief of the North Las Vegas Fire Department. In the state legislature John has been an effective leader and most political insiders believe he is on track to be the next Speaker of the House.

    John is being challenged for reelection by a Republican for the Nevada State House of Representatives in District 16.

    I love to see firefighters, cops and teachers elected to public office and more often than not they wind up being better at representing actual people than do the lawyers that are generally elected. Oceguera is an excellent legislator and deserves re-election.
