Thank you to all of the Californians who voted this November to build a better state.

While Proposition 31 did not pass, we are encouraged and emboldened by the many volunteers, contributors and supporters who believe California's best days are ahead of her.

While not everyone agreed the solutions we offered in Proposition 31 were perfect - we have yet to find anyone that doesn't believe we can do better.

We have an opportunity to learn from the challenges we faced in this election, and move forward with lawmakers and California voters to develop solutions that will get California back on the right track.

We hope you'll join us in working towards positive change and reform in our state government.

Sincerely,
The Proposition 31 Campaign Team
