Official Press Release from Placer Women Democrats:
The Placer Women Democrats today strongly endorsed Jessica Morse to represent California’s Fourth District in Congress.
In a unanimous vote, the board of directors agreed that Jessica Morse has the integrity, ability and commitment to address our district’s most urgent challenges, from job creation and rural broadband to fire safety.
As women and as community leaders in Placer County, we are thrilled to have a candidate of Jessica’s caliber who is also a fifth-generation daughter of the Sierra foothills.
We believe it is crucial for Democrats to unify behind the strongest possible candidate, which Jessica has proven herself to be. We have an extraordinary opportunity this year to unseat the do-nothing Republican incumbent, who has never lived in our district, and to elect a leader who will put community ahead of party. We should not squander this opportunity.
Jessica Morse is exactly the kind of unifying leader we need. As a national security strategist, she served our nation as a civilian in Iraq at the height of the war and then helped manage the State Department and USAID budgets for Iraq reconstruction. As an adviser to the head of the US Pacific Command, she drafted a key element of the US-India defense strategy.
Here at home, Jessica has attracted passionate grass-roots support, as well as praise from leaders across the state. The California Democratic Party overwhelmingly endorsed Jessica as its preferred candidate for Congress in the Fourth District.
Jessica has earned our support.
