As a Madera Unified School Board Trustee, I was able to help successfully cut costs and encourage

Thanks voters, supporters, Patty Hughes
of Stanislaus - you are a great campaign organizer and you kept this big district together and active with volunteers. Thanks.
The battle to make
“The Valley” representative of actual residents did not end on Election Day. Although we won some important
victories, we fell short of a CD 19 win. We cannot afford to lose the momentum we just built. If we continue organizing, we
will succeed in valley representation of "regular working folks" in Congress in the very near future.

I will keep a Democratic Congressional
Office open in Madera. It will be open to those interested in Congress and politics. This was my first big race and I learned
a lot. I met some great people and some crazies. I am planning to try again in 2012. My broadcasts will continue, as will

My Farm-to-School Program will bring $450,000 (fed funds) in 2010-11 to local farmers and fruits and vegetables to Madera students. Governor signed my idea (advocated 9/2009 in Madera Tribune) into law
to release terminally ill inmates and save almost half billion dollars "Goodwin's Law."

Denham did nothing about border security for 8 years.
A PEACEMAKER DENHAM HAS 2 FEDERAL ELECTION VIOLATION CASES
HIDES FROM VOTERS "He's in DC," yet seen on Fresno TV. If Denham is elected, you will never find him (without
cash lure). Where's WALDO? GOODWIN LIVES and works in CD 19. Denham's
lives in Salinas/Atwater and he is trying to avoid CD19, except for cash. Dodging voters. Goodwin
is fully invested in the CD 19 district and will protect and discuss issues with you.
Chukchansi, along with other
tribes, are heavily backing Denham. Our local economy will be secondary to tribal business
expansion needs - local power and individual power will become nil.
===CAL PERS, CAL
STARS and UC Retirement System are unfunded by $500 BILLION DOLLARS. Retirement benefits will drop - contributions will increase.
California also owes around $3 BILLION in overtime costs. Denham part of failed Senate - CA has lowest credit rating.

I always honor our soldiers and veterans.
I am a physician, arbitrator, mediator, peacemaker and a mom - so I will not vote for financial wars and our soldiers will
always be protected, not abandoned. Our sons and daughters will be more likely to die at home, with family, of old age if
I am elected to Congress.
GOODWIN WAS FIRST TO SUGGEST "MEDICAL PAROLE"
TO SAVE STATE MONEY - in an article published in the Madera Tribune September 2009 Loraine Goodwin advocated for medical parole.
The issue was then taken up by the state legislature and is slowly progressing through the system. GOODWIN has the IDEAS
to help the state and the Central Valley.

DR GOODWIN WORKS TO IMPROVE SCHOOL...
Dr. Loraine Goodwin has been active as a Trustee on the Madera Unified School Board as an advocate to improve student
and staff health through student obesity monitoring through BMI testing annually along with an enthusiastic physical education
program. She has also been active with MRSA and Cociddiodomycosis education and prevention. She is currently advocating
for an improved asthma policy along with improvement of indoor air quality. "It is impossible for students to learn if
the room air is polluted or the air is too warm or too cold. We also need to ensure the rooms have lighting and an environment
conducive to learning." Loraine Goodwin is also working with President Clinton's Alliance for Healthier Living
to get all of the schools involved with better health choices and the National Alliance of School-Based Health Centers to
put wellness centers and councils into the district system.

Global Witch Hunts
India labeled a group of women witches, marched them through the streets naked and made them eat human feces.
labels some children as witches, tortures them, makes the drink acid and puts acid on their faces and skin. If they don't
die a slow death, many are killed - per news reports.
We must stop this global abuse of women and children
The people of Afghanistan are now being asked to vote for a second time - and again risk death and injury. There are no assurances
that the second election will have any less fraud than the first election.
VALLEY AIR and PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Help improve valley air by moving closer to your workplace and by using public transportation, where possible. I took the
Amtrak train to Anaheim a few weeks ago. I had to go onto two trains and one bus, but the transfers were easy, the coaches
were clean and quiet, and the ride was better than fighting traffic. The cost was reasonable too. I think Amtrak
has a sale promotion now. If you can take the train, bus or bike - try it.
In home supportive services has been given a reprieve against budget cuts. An injunction has been placed and the disabled
may be able to continue with in home care.
HELP THE CHILDREN WHO FALL PREY TO MEDIA
"Reality " shows and news media eager for a "great" moment may be harming our children. Jon and Kate are
caught in a divorce and child custody battle. This is always a very difficult time and at times can lead to bodily injury,
if not murder. Unfortunately, the media has this story by the tail and will not let go because they can evoke great emotions
from the family with accusations, photos, money and threats. These are real people in a common situation and the children
are being hurt.
Little Falcon is shown every fifteen minutes on every TV station revealing that his family pulled the
balloon stunt for a TV show. His innocence is used against him and he is photographed repeatedly throwing up during an interview.
We must protect our children and ensure they may grow up to be "normal" happy adults.

All military authorities say we can not make a decision about troops in Afghanistan until the country has a verified elected
leader. Now it may be that a runoff election is needed due to election fraud or the 2 candidates must consent to co-leadership
(that won't work). It neither happens and we decide to withdraw our troops, the country will fall back to terrorist group
HEALTH CARE REFORM
Now Spkr Nancy Pelosi must merge three versions of the health care reform bill into one version that has a chance of passing
both houses. We wait.

Madera Unified School District Meeting
Madera Unified School Board Meeting 10/13/09
A few good things came up tonight:
of the AYP score reports confirmed the district must focus on closing the Achievement Gap.
2. Madera teachers and principals were
encouraged to create local school site museums with themes, as decided by the students, staff and local history. This
could give Madera 20 new museums almost immediately and would boost school pride by the students.
3. Further research
on School Ambassadors Program pending. This program is currently active in Fresno. The main goal of this program is to decrease
suspensions and expulsions and make all students feel involved in school safety and climate.
4. Through joint use agreements,
Madera Unified may find extra uses for their facilities and may be able to rehire some recently laid off classified staff.
5. Public Health Department stole our allotment of regular flu vaccine because we lacked a medical refrigerator. The Public
Health people were storing the vaccine, but took it for their own use because we were storing it in their refrigerator.
Congress Continues Health Care Debates
With the help of Senator Olympia Snowe (Maine), the health care debate in Congress will continue through the end of the year. Unfortunately,
the Senate Finance Committee defeated two amendments to include the public option.
In the end, we hope Congress
will pass a fiscally responsible health care bill that includes a public option because it will help ensure we all
have access to quality, affordable health care.

PROSTITUTION, RAPE, ABDUCTION and HUMAN TRAFFICKING
Prostitution, rape, abduction and human trafficking can creep into any family
- look at the Elizabeth Smart story and the girl abducted on the way to school and found 18 years later. The bad economy can
cause adults to prey on children for income. Unfortunately, many of the predators hide as "mentally ill" when found.
The Central Valley needs a prevention and rehabilitation program to save girls and boys who become victims of child predators. If
found alive, most can become productive citizens.

BANKS HOARD OUR PUBLIC BAILOUT MONEY - INTEREST AND FINES INCREASE
Bank of America has cut small business loans made through the Small Business
Administration (SBA) 7(a) program - despite taking billions in taxpayer-funded bailouts meant to stimulate the economy. At
a time when the failure rate of small businesses has been on the rise, Bank of America has - and continues - to reduce the
amount it lends in SBA loans while increasing higher-interest credit card lending to small businesses and individuals. The
result is less capital to support struggling small businesses and boost the economy. Bank of America hoardes the money and
refuses to get our bailout money out into circulation to stimulate the economy.
RADANOVICH HAS TO GO...RADANOVICH OUT !!!
HATE CRIMES - RADANOVICH SUPPORTS
Radanovich voted against the current Hate Crimes Bill...leaving minorities,
ethnic groups and women without protection. Luckily, most Congressmen are
better than Radanovich and the Bill passed without his vote.
RADANOVICH OUT !!!
CORPORATIONS STEAL BAILOUT FUNDS?
AIG did a 20 to 1 reverse split to delay becoming a Penny Stock. GM and Chrysler become penny stocks and may be delisted.
PRESIDENT OBAMA WINS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE...WOW
All AmeriCANS can choose to
be PEACEKEEPERS. Peacekeeping has no boundaries - it is every race, every family member, every individual - making good choices
over and over again - a way of life.
I, as a mediator and arbitrator, am a "certified" peacekeeper, but anyone can choose
to be a peacekeeper. I am working to bring a peacekeeping program to the Madera schools
where I am a trustee.
I am elated that President Obama can accept the Nobel Peace Prize for
all past, current and future, foreign and domestic peacekeepers, including our military and veterans. He ran an inclusive
Presidential campaign and championed the message of peace for the future. Ending a war responsibly is not as easy as starting
Congratulations President Obama…we peacekeepers, and all AmeriCANS,
take pride in your work and efforts.

DR GOODWIN STARTED MADERA FARM
Shortly after joining the Madera Unified School Board, Dr. Loraine Goodwin began promoting
the Farm-to-School Program. The former superintendent was adamant that the program was not safe - so undoable. Undaunted,
Dr. Goodwin persisted and was able to get a federal grant to start the Farm- to- School Program which is run under the District
Also, as part of Dr. Goodwin's efforts to start the Madera Unified Wellness Program, the position of Wellness
Coordinator was created and filled by Rosa Garcia. A wellness policy for the district was developed and is now present in
the cafeteria of each school.
Madera children now enjoy fresh local fruits and vegetables at no cost everyday as part
of the school program. Dr. Goodwin feels "the Central Valley grows great food and we have beautiful farms. Our children
must be able to enjoy our produce in our schools. We need to get rid of the junk food and let our kids enjoy healthy local
produce. It helps the kids and the farmers."
