California is missing a lot of the local organizational structure we have in Illinois, and it's set up a good bit differently out here.
I'm working on a project with several local Democrats & Progressives to use what worked in Illinois, and some new ideas to breathe life into the party at the local level her in Cali.
Wish us luck, because we're going to need it.

Stay strong, Illinois!
