Marcy Winograd, teacher, peace activist and president
of Progressive Democrats of Los Angeles, has announced her decision to challenge 36th District Rep. Jane Harman in the Democratic Party primary!
The election is June 6th.
The 36th congressional district areas of
West LA, Mar Vista, Venice, Marina Del Rey, Manhattan
Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, West Carson,
Lomita, Wilmginton and San Pedro.
Harman, as we know all too well, has been a Republican
in Democrat's clothing in her years in the House, a
supporter of the Iraq war, the Patriot Act, new
nuclear weapons development, and illegal government
wiretapping of private American citizens. Harman, the
ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee,
remained silent for over a year after being briefed on
the Bush administration's violation of federal
wiretapping law (FISA) and recently told "Meet the
Press" that she deplores the New York Times for
informing the American people that the Bush
Administration ignored the law.
Winograd is a teacher, literacy expert and longtime
opponent of the Iraq war and occupation.She was
instrumental in getting an anti-war resolution passed
at last year's California Democratic Convention and
worked with Assemblyman Paul Koretz to draft a
resolution calling for a moratorium on depleted
uranium weapons systems. Playing a leadership role to
protect our vote, Winograd helped establish the
California Election Protection network, a grassroots
organization that successfully lobbied for State
Senator Debra Bowen's bill requiring a paper trail for
electronic voting recounts. In her position as Media
Reform Chair of the Progressive Caucus of the
California Democratic Party, Winograd hosts "They
Say/We Say" -- a public access television show which
highlights the plight of returning veterans and
underscores the importance of citizen activism.
As a congresswoman, Marcy would immediately join the
"Out of Iraq" caucus in Congress, vote to de-fund the
war, and lobby to spend the war billions on social
programs for education, health care, housing and the
environment. "The best intelligence, the most
effective defense against terrorism," says Winograd, "
is to craft a sound foreign policy and build strong
social networks that unite, rather than divide, the
world community. Pre-emptive wars that kill and
main thousands of innocent Americans and Iraqis will
only create more terrorists and undermine our
security. It is time for a new vision and a new
leader in the 36th Congressional District."
