PROGRESSIVES

for ERIC BAUMAN

 

“Dear Democratic Leader;

 

We are writing to urge you to support Eric Bauman for Chair of the California Democratic Party.

 

Eric Bauman has been a champion of universal healthcare his entire career. As an emergency room nurse, Eric understands that everyone’s health is fragile and that we all need high quality, affordable healthcare. That’s why universal healthcare champions such as U.S. Rep. John Garamendi, State Senator Ricardo Lara, former Senator and Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, former Senator Mark Leno, and Dr. Paul Song all support his candidacy.

 

Eric is a champion of labor. He has walked the picket line and fought unjust employers as a union member and as a Democratic leader. He helped organize his nurse colleagues at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center and at Providence Tarzana Medical Center into SEIU. He continues to support workers throughout the state as they fight for strong contracts, fair wages, employer- paid healthcare, and a voice in their workplaces.

 

Eric ran campaigns against the anti-labor initiatives which aimed to silence the voices of working men and women. And he partnered with the L.A. Federation of Labor in last years “Fight for 15” campaign, which brought the $15/hour minimum wage to L.A. City and County, Long Beach, and Pasadena.

 

As a defender of public education, Eric has fought hard against vouchers, charter schools, and privatization of education. He knows that good schools demand transparent governance, respect for teachers, and a commitment to all students. And he believes that college should be affordable! That is why the California Faculty Association, the California College Democrats, and the California Young Democrats have all endorsed his candidacy.

 

As leader of the LGBTQ community, Eric headed L.A.’s Stonewall Democratic Club for much of the 1990s, helped found what became the National Stonewall Democrats, and campaigned tirelessly against Proposition 8. And, he is still fighting for his community and for all Californians to enjoy equal rights.

 

Eric started as a grassroots organizer to the State Party’s Vice Chair. As Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party, Eric has helped it grow into a dominant force in state politics, holding every statewide elected office and a two-thirds super-majority in both houses of the Legislature. He has also chaired the Los Angeles County Democratic Party for 16 years, transforming it into a national-award-winning political powerhouse whose annual budget has grown from $50,000 at the start of his tenure to $1.7 million today.

 

Still, Eric isn’t satisfied. He knows that our Party must do more to advance social and economic justice here in California and across the country. To accomplish that, he wants our Party to become more progressive, inclusive, and in touch with its grassroots. One of Eric’s best qualities is his desire to listen to critiques and act boldly to address them.

He has the experience and the know-how to further grow our Party so that we can achieve all our goals. That is why nurses, teachers, firefighters, healthcare workers, and hotel workers all support Eric Bauman.

 

Please vote for Eric Bauman for Chair of the California Democratic Party.”

Why Real Choice Matters


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


 

KELogo

Let’s be clear: there is no middle ground when it comes to legislating a woman’s right to choose. We either respect a woman’s reproductive freedom in our laws or we don’t.

The issue is not how many seats we hold, it’s about who holds them and their values. It’s about building the bench. If we don’t elect progressive, pro-choice candidates at the local level, there is literally no qualified candidate to run for higher office when the time comes. And let’s remind ourselves that even here in big, blue California, the majority of our local seats are held by Republicans.

Today, many Democrats face a difficult quandary in our red and purple districts: back an anti-choice Democrat, alienate women and ditch our core values or leave the field to the Republicans. It’s time we create another option. It’s time we build the bench.

We, as a Party, are solely responsible for this quagmire. It’s time for us to stop pointing fingers at each other, and instead look in the mirror and ask, “What have we personally done to help build the bench of pro-choice candidates in local office?” If the answer is don’t know, can’t remember or nothing; well, let’s stop talking about it; let’s be about it.

I’m running to be the Chair of the California Democratic Party. You have a right to know where I stand on this issue. So let me be crystal clear: if a candidate doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose, they shouldn’t expect to be supported. Period.

My seven step plan addresses how we are going to solve this gap in qualified, pro-choice local candidates here in California’s red and purple districts. No, it won’t happen overnight – it will take time.

But I can assure you, if there isn’t a pipeline of pro-choice candidates in these opposition held Californian districts in the future, you can point that finger in my direction because, the buck stops here.

Democratically yours,
