Santa Clarita, CA, January 31, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Democratic and Progressive clubs, including the Antelope Valley Democratic Club, present Democrats Knight Out! A March on Steve Knight's Offices.
Wednesday, February 1st, 2017, 4-5pm
"We will demonstrate to Congressman Steve Knight's office that we will work to defend the hard-won protections of the Affordable Care Act and Medicare/Medicaid, applying our power by conducting a 'march on -- call out' rally."
Brandon Zavala, Antelope Valley Democratic Club
Accessing your elected official is supposed to be the right of every citizen, but for the last several months, voters in the 25th congressional district have had consistent difficulty making contact with their representative, House Republican, Steve Knight. As the federal government prepares to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, a program that has high enrollment in this part of the state, Knight’s staff has been reluctant to provide any information regarding the congressman’s schedule, making it near impossible for his constituents to meet with him to express their fears about losing their invaluable health coverage without a clear plan to replace it.
Last week Knight sent out an email referencing a Tele Town Hall he claims to have hosted. Members of his email list received no advance notice of the call and the event was not advertised on social media or the government website.
This is unacceptable.
That’s why tomorrow afternoon the Antelope Valley Democratic Club is striking back. In conjunction with every organized democratic and progressive club in the 25th district, we’ll be flooding Representative Knight's three offices from 4 pm to 5 pm, marching for our right to be heard.
Please join us for this important event by meeting at one of the following three locations:
Antelope Valley Office
1008 West Avenue M-14, Suite E
Palmdale, CA 93551
Santa Clarita Valley Office
26415 Carl Boyer Drive, Suite 220
Santa Clarita, CA 91350
Simi Valley Office
1445 E. Los Angeles Avenue, #206

Because you can’t hide from democracy.
