     I have received inquiries about my thoughts/recommendations on our local and state election races for the upcoming June election. For those who are interested, I have made endorsements in the following June Primary election races.
     ***Please vote by mail or go to your polling location on Tuesday, June 7th, between 7:00am and 8:00pm.***
POTUS - Democratic nominee -- Bernie Sanders 

U.S. Senate -- KAMALA HARRIS -- http://www.kamalaharris.org/

CA State Senate: 
  • Mariko Yamada  #3
  • NANCY SKINNER  #9 - http://skinner4senate.com/ - I am thrilled to endorse former Assemblymember Skinner for the State Senate. She has proven herself as an effective leader who can get things done in Sacramento for the East Bay and the entire state. Throughout her career, she has been an environmental and climate leader. With our environmental and clean energy champions in the Legislature leaving due to term limits, we need Nancy's leadership and expertise in Sacramento to further our pursuits on climate protection and clean energy.

A.C. Democratic Central Committee:
     There are many very good candidates running in the 15th and 18th Assembly districts for this grassroots Democratic party position. Trying to discern which of the candidates will be most active and effective in registering voters and helping to elect liberal-progressive Democrats to local and state office is not an easy task.
     I have endorsed the following 10 candidates in the 15th A.D. (note that you may vote for no more than Nine):
  •  Sharon Ball
  •  Brett Badelle
  •  Michael Barnett
  •  Elizabeth Echols
  •  Karen Weinstein
  •  Andy Kelley
  •  Floyd Huen
  •  Dianne Martinez
  •  Beverly Greene
  •  'Ces' Rosales

     Additionally, I know that candidates Jamila English, Kathy Neal, David Shiver, Bonnie Wheatley, Vince Casalaina and Kate Harrison are also good progressive political activists. 

In the 18th A.D., I am recommending the following 11 candidates (vote for no more than Ten):

  •  Pamela Drake
  •  Howard Egerman
  •  Mario Juarez
  •  Corina Lopez
  •  Marlon McWilson
  •  Peggy Moore
  •  Jim Oddie
  •  Linda Perry
  •  Diana Prola
  •  Robin Torello
  •  Malcolm A. Uno
Proposition 50 - Yes
