Former two-time mayor and city council woman, Reinette Senum, has officially announced her bid for
California Governor of 2022. Ms. Senum, an outspoken community activist and opponent of
corruption for nearly 20 years, filed with the Secretary of State in August of 2021, though there was no
official announcement at the time.
Ms. Senum is running without any political party affiliation because, “It is impossible to serve a party
and serve the people simultaneously.”
Her campaign slogan is “I’m not a Democrat. I’m not a Republican. I’m a Californian.”
Ms. Senum has spent the last year traveling up and down the state of California, meeting citizens from
all party affiliations and backgrounds.
“It has become very clear to me as I meet Californians from all walks of life, that they are done with the
two-party system, the corruption, the crime, the homelessness, the destruction of the middle class,
the government overreach, the taxes, the censorship and lack of transparency, and they are done with
Big Money interfering with what was once representative government.”
Ms. Senum’s platform is also child centric, in that it underscores how every decision we make today
should serve seven generations from now. This concept was inspired by the Six Nations of the
Iroquois Confederacy that led to the formation of the US Constitution and our nation’s representative
The Seventh Generation philosophy supports the “bond of community, promotes stability, and
provides concrete values with which each person can test his or her everyday actions.”
However, our forefathers excluded two critical components of this constitutional-vessel, the anchor
and the compass. The compass being the Seventh Generation principle, and the anchor being the
elders: Whose wisdom should be included in the decision-making process, drawing upon the last
seven generations so as to ensure a bountiful future for our children’s children.
“As it currently stands, our children do not have a future,” stated Ms. Senum. “I intend on changing
When asked who her biggest competitor is in the gubernatorial race, Ms. Senum will tell you, “It’s not
a person, it’s a thing: Censorship.”
Like many Americans around the nation, Senum has been subjected to aggressive social media
shadow-banning, de-platforming, and most recently, her official gubernatorial Instagram page was
removed without warning on January 10th.
“This level of censorship is reserved for despots and dictators and does not represent freedom of
speech or a free nation.” Ms. Senum added, “It’s very clear that my campaign is a threat to this
growing tyranny, otherwise those censoring would simply ignore me.”
In spite of the attempt to silence her, Ms. Senum continues her campaign, sharing her 30-page
Contract With Californians that contains a 7-point plan. Ms. Senum’s Contract with Californians is a
living document that embodies and celebrates the inherent value of always making decisions with an
eye to the next seven generations:

  1. Natural Resources Stewardship
  2. Food and Farms
  3. Common Sense Education
  4. Real Public Health and Individual Wellbeing
  5. Durable Economic Growth
  6. Vibrant Communities
  7. New Civic Engagement

“At the very least,” added Ms. Senum, “as a gubernatorial candidate in a state that is in such serious
crisis, the most sensible thing I can do is let the California electorate know what they are voting for. I
am doing this by providing a clear, measurable, and common-sense pathway forward before voters
ever submit their ballot.
Now is the time, and Californians are waking up to the fact that they can no longer continue voting for
a different wing of the same bird. The two-party system has failed us, and if we continue to vote as we
always have, and don’t course-correct come June 7th 2022, life in California will only become more
2022 is the year Californians stand up and say “not on my watch,” and take back our state
