Fresno County Democrats elect delegates for April convention

From Gary Lasky, FCDCC Organizational Development Chair:

Congratulations to all Democrats who stepped up to to run or who turned out to vote Sunday to represent Fresno at the California Democratic Party convention this April, from Assembly Districts 29 and 31. I am excited to see such a vibrant delegation and the enthusiasm at our two elections. In AD-29, 150 ballots were cast.

To those candidates who lost the election – and other folks who wish now that they had run – you can obtain a proxy from delegation members who are unable to attend this year’s Sacramento convention. Check back in March.

Results are listed below. Delegates are elected to two-year terms.

Thanks again, everyone, for your hard work, enthusiasm and support.
