Dave Waddell & Sonia Aery

Dave is a professor emeritus in the Chico State Department of Journalism. He worked for 20 years for daily newspapers before joining the CSUC faculty. For 15 years, Dave served as an adviser to the award-winning student newspaper, The Orion. Waddell was twice honored by Chico State for his diversity recruitment efforts and is now focusing on investigative reporting as ChicoSol's news director.

Sonia Aery has been working on economic development and financial security issues in Northern CA for the past ten years. Sonia was born in Chico and grew up in Yuba City. She has a degree in Community & Regional Development from UC Davis and a Masters in City & Regional Planning from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. She is the owner and principal of the Allstate Insurance: Sonia Aery Agency.

We hope to facilitate a town hall where the people can ask real questions and properly vet the candidates. We can replace LaMalfa in 2018, but we need to know the candidates and choose someone that represents our communities and we can truly say IS "ONE OF US!"

Light refreshments will be provided, or you can bring your own. This event is not sponsored by any political party and is entirely a grassroots effort by local progressive communities demanding action.
