Please join Carla and attend an event or join team Carla online and on social media.All are welcome!
As your Assemblywoman, I will listen to you and work to represent your interests and not the corporate interests or special interests. We have the people and my opponent has all the special interests and corporate profits which have bought his office these last six years….and it’s time to put your interests and concerns ahead of big money billionaires and your votes can do just that in 2018! Flip it Blue and Catch the Big Blue Wave with me! Aloha!
Our exciting news to share with you is that the campaign has two physical brick and mortar office locations to date for you to join with Carla and to support and participate in our Democracy. We will be planning an open house with refreshments at both locations, and volunteer events in the near future. Whether you participate a little or a lot, please get involved, many hands make light work! I still have a mobile office and travel throughout all the nine counties as often as possible and can set appointments with people to meet at your locations, events, fundraisers, canvasses, or group meetings.
I am hoping our offices will be utilized as much as possible by campaign volunteers as I will be arranging 2 hours shifts for people to come in and help with office work, phone calls, canvassing and a list of to do actions.
Our first office location, opened in July, is generously shared with Jackie Smith, Candidate for Assembly District 6 at the El Dorado County Democratic Headquarters.
Our second office, opened in August, is located in Madera Ranchos. Please find addresses for both locations below.
I need volunteers to staff both offices and can set a schedule with you that works best for you. Please call, text or send an email or fill out the form below to help with volunteer staff positions. I am looking into opening and sharing offices in other counties too and will keep you posted. Also, we can set up virtual meetings with advance scheduling on the internet. Please keep in touch and I will too! High tech is our friend sometimes with such a large district and miles between us, but communication is easier today than ever before. I am aware that we need more broadband in our rural communities and main street areas! So, let’s be close via the many ways to communicate, if you want to talk. Your concerns are my concerns, as I am the best candidate for the people…all of us and each of you! Welcome!

Carla J Neal for California State Assembly 2018
I had a great weekend with Calaveras County folks at events in Murphys, Angels Camp, and Big Trees. It was especially nice to stay at the Murphys hotel on Friday evening. For all our worry, the air quality was okay-good and we felt safe because the Ferguson Fire and other fires were extinguished in the area-thanks to all who helped to do so. Thank you to my supporters, Arlene and Charnette, Anne, and Bruce and so many more for your support and time talking with me to understand your concerns and hopes! I am going to work for you on better broadband to the mainstreet businesses, cannabis business support and I will work to bring more money for mental health, healthcare (more nurses and doctors to our rural hospitals, clinics and counties) for everyone to have healthCARE!!!!!! Additionally, I fully support teachers, administrators in providing quality education, comprehensive property insurance for homes with a public option (if private insurance says your home is too risky and uninsurable, like folks in Oakhurst are telling me), clean water and fire safety maximized when elected. I Will be back soon and will call to work on the event we talked over coffee at Gold Country Roasters in Murphys.
On Sunday, I was in Sacramento with Democracy for America training and thank you for the great lessons provided by Susan, Brieanna Fisher, Jim Dean, and Anoa Changa!
I may be the inexperienced candidate for State Assembly, but I am on the road to being the the best candidate for the people, jobs and our environment on the ballot with the best platform on issues that matter! This next week I will be in Madera (of course!), Amador County and then in El Dorado for events and Getting out the Vote fun! I am also starting my fall semester at Fresno City this week and am sorry to miss the Evening in the Pines in Twain Harte in Tuolumne County on Thursday. I hope many good people show up for this fine evening to hear Jessica Morse, Congressional Candidate in CD 4 and Kevin de Leon, candidate for US Senate speak. Thank you Anne for speaking on my behalf Thursday evening while I am still working. If elected, I will be your representative full-time, until then I still work my two jobs as a educator and a notary public, in addition to campaigning. This is just the start of more good to come!
