I am excited to announce that the National Women’s Political Caucus California Board has endorsed me for State Treasurer! Mentoring and empowering women to increase their participation in the political process and standing for the issues that impact women and families is critical not only to achieving equality for women, but also to ensuring we create a better society for all Californians. I am honored to receive the endorsement of NWPC, and look forward to continuing to stand up for women throughout our state.

I was proud to partner with Willpowered Woman and Every 9 Seconds in launching Domestic Violence Awareness Month on Oct‌ober 4. We hosted a Silent Witness displayto remember the victims who have lost their lives due to domestic violence. The display will be available for viewing through Oc‌tober at 45‌5 Gold‌en Ga‌te Ave‌nue, Sui‌te 1050‌0, Sa‌n F‌rancisco, CA.

I had a great conversation with members of SEIU Local 1000 at our Los Angeles Town Hall. Local 1000 members represent our state’s dedicated public servants; these hardworking and compassionate men and women contribute almost $6 billion to California’s economy each year, and Local 1000 ensures they have the opportunity to have a good life, live in sustainable communities, and enjoy the fruits of social, economic, and environmental justice.

In September, I toured the USS Iowa, which was originally commissioned in 1943 and earned 11 battle stars during its service in WWII and the Korean War. It was a fascinating and humbling tour, and I came away with an even deeper respect for the vital role our military service members play in keeping us safe.

I had a great time visiting the UC Merced Venture Lab, which supports entrepreneurship in the Central Valley. The lab doesn’t take an equity share and is free and open to the public. This is where I met Paul Curtis (pictured above), who has created building insulation that snaps together like Legos and uses materials that don’t burn easily, making it a safe and user friendly option. Supporting entrepreneurs like Paul and business incubators like the Venture Lab is key to California being competitive in the 21st century’s global economy.

Erasing the stigma surrounding Hepatitis B is essential to improving public health and the quality of life for our family, friends and neighbors. Thank you to the incredible advocates at San Francisco Hep B Free and Stanford University’s Asian Liver Center for all they do to educate the public about this disease and eradicate it once and for all.

Here I am riding in the City of El Cerrito’s centennial anniversary parade. I believe our local communities are the heart of our state, and El Cerrito is truly a wonderful, welcoming city. Congratulations to El Cerrito on 100 years, and here’s to many more!

thank you


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for your support at my crucial end-of-quarter deadline. Because of you, we are in a great position to build the critical campaign infrastructure that we need to win this race in the days and months ahead.

On a separate note, the horrible tragedy in Las Vegas hits close to home for Heather and me. After law school, we lived in Las Vegas during my judicial clerkship. We still have many friends and former colleagues living in the Las Vegas area. Our thoughts are with those affected by this senseless act of violence, including the first responders and ordinary people who went above and beyond to save innocent lives and lead people to safety. We are grateful for their immediate response.

If you are able to donate, a GoFundMe page has been set up to support victims of the Las Vegas attack which can be accessed at this link: https://www.gofundme.com/dr2ks2-las-vegas-victims-fund

Thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Andrew

We are all much more than one thing


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

Jeff Bleich for Lieutenant Governor 2018 FPPC # 1396288

I met up with Ellen Tara James-Penney for a cup of coffee and to hear her California story. It was remarkable in its uniqueness, but also in its familiar place in this new economy. Ellen’s a professor at San Jose State University helping young people prepare for jobs of the future, but the housing crisis and health care burdens have forced Ellen and her husband to live out of their car.

There are plenty of Californians doing very well, but we need to do more to empower people like Ellen who are working hard and still not able to afford basic necessities. That’s what my campaign is about—giving Californians the tools they need to be successful and helping solve the though problems facing our state like affordable housing, preparing for rapidly changing job markets, and treating the rise in mental health illness and opioid addiction.

Share Ellen’s story

Take a moment to share Ellen’s story by email or on your social media networks. Give voice to her struggles and the many Californians who are struggling to get ahead. And join our team as a supporter today so that we can tackle these tough problems together.

We did it!


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

 

We met our end-of-quarter goal!

Because folks just like you chipped in, we made it!

I’m running for Lt. Governor of California to bring people together and get things done. California has a real opportunity to send Washington a message — we’re going to put in the work to remain a beacon of hope and progress, with fairness, equality, and economic justice.

Thanks for putting in the work to keep this campaign strong,
Dr. Ed

Former CDP Chair John Burton joins our team!


The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.


 

I’m so proud to announce that John Burton, former State Senator and CA Democratic Party Chair, has endorsed my campaign for Lt. Governor.

“Eleni Kounalakis has the dedication and vision necessary to fight for all Californians and lead the way to a better and stronger California. As Lieutenant Governor, Eleni will work to lower the cost of housing, make higher education more affordable, and defend California’s values of equality and diversity. I am proud to support Eleni for Lieutenant Governor.” – Former State Senator John Burton

Burton joins U.S. Senator Kamala Harris; Phil Angelides, former CA Democratic Party Chair and State Treasurer; Christine Pelosi, Chair of the CA Democratic Party Women’s Caucus; Norma Alcala, Vice Chair of the CA Democratic Party’s Chicano Latino Caucus; Susan Rowe, Chief Vice Chair of the CA Democratic Party’s Rural Caucus; Amy Champ, Regional Director, Region 4; and so many activists and leaders up and down the state.

My first job after business school was with the Democratic Party in 1992 when we elected two women to the U.S. Senate and flipped the state from red to blue.

All my life I have supported progressive and democratic candidates and causes, and as Lt. Governor, I will fight hard to advance our economy to make sure it works for everyone, create more affordable homes so families can stay in California, lower the cost of higher education, and protect our values and diversity.

Thank you for your continuous encouragement and support for this campaign.

Sincerely,

Eleni
