Silke Pflueger needs our support in her campaign for California State Senate from District 1.
She is running in a special election primary on March 26.
The seat became open when incumbent Ted Gaines was elected to the Board of Equalization last November.
There will be a special election on March 26 with ballots being mailed February 27. The top two vote getters will be on the ballot for the June 4 Special General Election so it is critical that Silke be one of the top two.
Silke is a co-founder and co-chair of Tahoe Truckee Indivisible.
Her priorities include:
- Affordable and Accessible Healthcare for all Californians, including those in Rural Areas
- Fire Resiliency and Preparation
Timely Consumer Protection after disasters
- Climate Change measures that protect our farming communities and winter tourism economy
- Affordable Housing
