Letter from Tim Canova in Support of Tamborine Borrelli

Dear Friend,

The only way that progressives can win and our movement continue to grow is for all of us to pull together.

That’s why I’m happy to support Tamborine Borrelli running as an Independent Progressive for the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington’s 10th Congressional District. She’s competing in an August 7th “open jungle” primary, with the top two finishers moving on to the general election in November. Absentee ballots will be in people’s hands in just a couple of weeks.

Tamborine is challenging Congressman Denny Heck, an establishment Democrat funded by the same predatory corporate interests that fund my opponent, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. And like Schultz, Heck is also on the wrong side of so many issues.

Tamborine was a National Bernie Delegate, served on the board of Election Justice USA, and launched a chapter of Represent US focusing on the American Anti-Corruption Act to get corporate money out of politics. There’s good reason Tamborine has been endorsed by the Washington State Progressive Caucus, six local chapters of Our Revolution, and the Contract for American Renewal (CFAR). She won’t take a dime of corporate money, and she supports Medicare for All, debt-free college and trade schools, a Green New Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, stronger unions for workers, and ending the war on drugs, private prisons, and mass incarceration. She’s fighting for DREAMers, the rights of indigenous peoples, and the most vulnerable in our society.

According to Tamborine, “When 50% of Congress are millionaires, compared to 1% of the American population, we clearly see who’s representing whom.” That’s why Tamborine wants to outlaw corporate money from our political system and why she supports public campaign finance reform. Tamborine also supports election reform for secure and accurate elections, including open primaries, same day voter registration, federal mandates for standardizing elections, and eliminating insecure proprietary electronic voting machines.

Tamborine’s race is among the most important in the country this year. When she wins, it will show the power of grassroots organizing over corporate money. And when elected, Tamborine and I will be the first of many independents in the U.S. House of Representatives.

We all know how important it is to support progressive grassroots candidates at all levels. To donate to Tamborine’s campaign, please click here.

Another way to help is to volunteer some of your time and energy, making phone calls and walking door-to-door, and engaging in discussions with the voters in your district.
