Kathy DeChellis, a 64-year-old retired school teacher, stood in the hallway outside Republican Rep. Steve Knight’s district office in Santa Clarita and recalled the last time she went to a political protest.
It was 1971, when she was a college student at the University of San Francisco and marched around Golden Gate Park to protest the Vietnam War.
DeChellis joined a crowd made up of retirees, young organizers and parents with toddlers who showed up at one of Knight’s three district offices to hand-deliver letters urging the Palmdale Republican not to vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. The protests were among several that have popped up in recent days outside the district offices of members of Congress throughout the state.
