Marianne Williamson has declared her candidacy, independent of any political party, for California’s 33rd district seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The 33rd district is currently represented by Democrat Henry Waxman. Issues the Williamson for Congress campaign is addressing are: – Voter suppression –
For 231 members of Congress, the basic idea of responsible waste management by the coal industry was too much.
Of the 25 members of the Safe Climate Caucus, only 15 supported last week’s progressive legislation to finally take action against climate change. 9 Safe Climate Caucus members actually voted against the legislation to deal with climate change.
