31st District Congressional candidate Justin Kim expressed his thanks for all the volunteers and supporters who have helped him run a positive campaign over the past five months.
Kim and his volunteer-driven staff pursued a focused grassroots campaign that has drawn attention across the district. Together the team raised more than $100,000 from individual donors, communicated Kim’s priorities in an aggressive mail campaign, and knocked on thousands of doors to meet voters face to face.
“One of my primary goals throughout this campaign has been to connect with as many district residents as possible, and I have immensely enjoyed interacting with voters of all parties and all walks of life,” Kim said. “With help from generous volunteers, we have run a campaign the Inland Empire can be proud of.”
Kim remains committed to striving for a better Inland Empire and to ensuring victories in this region for President Obama and the local Democratic candidates in November.
“Victory for Mr. Miller and Mr. Dutton is a serious setback not only for the Democratic Party in the Inland Empire, but also for the middle- and working-class citizens of the 31st District,” Kim said. “This disappointing result highlights the need for a stronger Democratic Party organization, better voter education and mobilization, and a fresh and forward-looking whole-district strategy for winning that transcends politics as usual.”
Kim further pledged to work toward uniting and strengthening the Democratic Party in the 31st District so that the it will be able to champion effectively causes and priorities that are important to the middle- and working-class citizens of this district.
“The 31st District is full of promise that can be delivered if our local, state, and federal leaders work with a clear vision,” said Kim. “I look forward to working toward a better future together with my neighbors.”

They were: 31st Congressional District candidates Justin Kim, Renea Wickman and Rita Ramirez-Dean; 23rd state Senate District candidate Melissa O’Donnell, and 40th Assembly District candidate Russ Warner

Today was a great day. Here’s some of what I heard today while canvassing Redlands:
“Oh, I’ve heard of you.”
“I’ve seen your yard signs around town.”
“Hey, I just got something in the mail from your campaign.”
“I read that you were at the Tea Party forum.”
“Someone called me yesterday and asked who I was voting for—I told her Justin Kim.”
For part of each day, Sunday through Friday, I’m out canvassing with Brian (my field director). Some days it’s just the two of us. Other days we get help from committed volunteers.
Today, I met two new volunteers who are going to canvas their neighborhood by themselves. There’s nothing more valuable to this campaign than volunteers willing to go door-to-door to connect with their neighbors and personally ask for support. Message me on Facebook or send the campaign an email (email@example.com) if you too can help!
If you’ve recently driven around the Inland Empire you’ve probably noticed the growing number of yard signs supporting Justin. We’ve planted nearly 1000 already, but would love to hear from more individuals who are willing to add to the momentum and give a public pledge of support for Justin.
If you want a sign installed, send us your name and address at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll take of it for you. Thanks for your support!
