Never been more important


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


 

I’ve never been more proud to be a Californian.

That’s the message I just delivered to the 2017 California Democratic Convention.

I’m so energized by the work we’ve done to lead the resistance against the politics of resentment, misogyny and bigotry.

We must keep up the fight. That’s why we made this video:

"Proud" Video

 California is and always must be a refuge of justice and opportunity for Americans of all backgrounds.
No matter what you look like, where you live, what language you speak, or who you love, we will always defend our people and our progress.

Together, we’ll win the fight for California and ensure our state remains the nation’s beacon oh hope.

Please watch and share the video on Facebook.

In solidarity,
Kevin

Thank you

California Democrats —

I am so humbled to be elected as the next Chair of the California Democratic Party.

I want to thank the amazing coalition of organized labor, Young Democrats, and grassroots activists – both new and old – who have put their faith in me and entrusted me with this most awesome of responsibilities.

California must remain the bastion of resistance against Donald Trump, and the shining beacon of hope, leading the way, pushing the envelope on progressive policy for the rest of the nation to follow.

Kimberly Ellis and Lenore Albert Sheridan are fierce and worthy competitors. They gave voice to a vast and growing segment of the Party that hasn’t always felt listened to or valued, and to their supporters, I want to say directly that you will have a seat at the table in the California Democratic Party.

My fellow officers and I are committed to working with you to make our Party representative of our grassroots base and ensure we stand up for those most in need.

Regardless of the outcome of today’s election, and regardless of the fact that we have proven that California is the one place in the nation that knows how to do it right – there is no denying that there is a problem when so many of our hardworking activists feel that they are not welcome within our Party and that they have been slighted and shut out of the process.

We cannot win the vital elections in 2018 and beyond without the energy, commitment and participation of every part of our Democratic family.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you.  Now let’s go show America and the world what it means to be a Democrat!

In Democratic Unity

CADEM 2017: It’s a Wrap!


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


 

I was inspired to see so many engaged and enthusiastic Democrats from across California at this weekend’s Democratic Party Convention!
I am humbled and honored by all the support and endorsements I have received from delegates for my campaign for Attorney General. The response has been overwhelming and I am incredibly grateful.
As I said in my speech during General Session: Democrats are leading the resistance in California and across the nation. It was exciting to meet all the new Democratic activists and to revisit with those who have been working hard for many years. I was encouraged by the ideas and strategies you shared with me that would ensure progressive policies are not only defended, but expanded.
I was the first statewide elected official to have formally endorsed SB 562, the single payer bill. Please join me and all the party activists already working for its passage.
I hope to have your support for my campaign for Attorney General. To learn more about our campaign, and to endorse me if you have not already done so, please go to DaveJones2018.com.
The support of grassroots Democratic activists means a lot to me. I attended all three days of the convention to hear directly from my fellow Democratic activists from around the state.
Thank you for your leadership and activism as we continue to lead the resistance. I look forward to working together towards a bluer California!
Sincerely,
DAVE JONES
California Insurance Commissioner

Ellis Statement on Election Outcomes

For Immediate Release
Contact: 510-560-3704

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 21, 2017): We are so grateful for the support of the thousands of California Democrats we received this weekend and over the past two years on this journey.

This was a close campaign, one that will come down to a handful of votes at the end of the day. We have some concerns about the way some of those votes were cast. If we want to build a Party that moves forward together, strong and unified, we owe it to every Democrat in California to ensure the election was conducted fairly and with transparency. We are talking with the CDP to do just that. We appreciate the leadership that Chairman Burton and Shawnda Westly have shown in this, and we’re working with them to find a resolution.

Win or lose, I’m proud of the campaign that we ran and the energy and enthusiasm we saw in that convention center. I’m committed to the future of our great Party, and I look forward to continuing our work together to turn California – and the nation – blue.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Please stay connected with our campaign online at www.voteforkimberly.com
