See you at E-Board!


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


 

Alex Padilla

Democrats,

 

Secretary of State Alex Padilla is looking forward to seeing you at E-Board this weekend in San Francisco! Secretary Padilla is excited to hear from you while he’s there, and to tell you about the big week the campaign is having!

 

Leaders in California such as Governor Jerry Brown and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom and a number of Labor Unions, including SEIU California, endorsed Secretary Padilla this week. These leaders and groups work tirelessly for California and California’s working families. We’re humbled and thrilled by their endorsements.

 

We’re also excited to announce so many endorsements from the California Democratic Congressional delegation!

 

These leaders have endorsed Secretary Padilla for reelection because they know that he is fighting for California. Join them in endorsing Secretary Padilla for re-election.

 

Secretary Padilla will be at the California Democratic Party’s Executive Board meeting this weekend because he’s invested in the future of the California Democratic Party. Will you be there?

 

Since 2015, Secretary Padilla has made remarkable strides in making it more convenient for eligible Californians to register and vote. He has aggressively promoted online voter registration, sponsored the New Motor Voter Act, sponsored the Voters Choice Act, and, this year, launched online pre-registration for 16- and 17-year-olds so that they can vote as soon as they turn 18. With Trump in office, we know that expanding voter rights isn’t always easy. But Secretary Padilla has been on the front lines defending the right to vote against attacks at the national level. Remember, he was quick to say, “No!” to the President’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity when they requested the personal information for all California voters.

Friday, November 17 at Fresno City Hall

There will be a Rally and Protest this Friday at Fresno City Hall to advocate for transgender rights and safety – focusing on the Homeless No Camping ordinance.  The event will be at 4:30 p.m. and it would be great if you could come and show your support for this important cause.  Zoyer Zyndel, one of the organizers of the event, invited me to say a few words about how few shelter beds there are for the homeless and why that is a problem.
