                      Dear Dave,

                      Teachers, firefighters and nurses have launched a petition drive to
                      put a majority vote budget on the ballot in November.

                      Their measure changes the vote requirement to pass a budget
                      from two-thirds to a simple majority and penalizes legislators for
                      failing to do their most important job – passing a fair budget on
                      time.

                      Year after year Republicans hold the budget hostage and are able
                      to make extraneous demands that weaken our environmental
                      protection laws and undermine worker protections, and they even
                      managed to foist a Louisiana-style "Top-Two" primary on the
                      voters of California – all in exchange for passing a budget which
                      they are already required to do by law.

                      California needs a majority vote budget.

                      Please support this effort by downloading the petition kit,
                      and help us collect the signatures we need to get a majority
                      vote budget on the November ballot.

                      Organizing a petition drive can be a tremendous Party-building exercise and will help energize supporters
                      during this critical election cycle in which grassroots volunteers will be vital to our success. Please make as
                      many copies as you can and talk to your friends and neighbors about the need for an On-Time Budget.

                      Getting this initiative to quality for the ballot will be an uphill climb for our partners unless our party's
                      grassroots activists engage, organize and mobilize now.

                      Thank you for working with us.

                      Peace and friendship,
