ALEX SAN MARTIN CANDIDATE STATEMENT FOR SECRETARY CDP


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


My name is Alex San Martin. I am a lifelong democrat and Sacramento resident. Like many Californians, I am a descendant of immigrants who came here seeking a better life for their family. Their hard work and dedication enabled my opportunities to attend and complete college, work in public service, and, now, run for an officer position in the Democratic Party.

 

I am not a career politician, but instead a career public servant with 10 years-experience. I started my public service career working as an Administrative Coordinator with the Chicano Latino Caucus CDP, Latino Liaison African American Caucus CDP, served on the membership committee with the Disability Caucus CDP,  and worked for LA Council member Tony Cardenas, District 6. I also worked at the California State Senate in 2016.  The past 10 years have led me to this candidacy for Secretary of the California Democratic Party. Just as I have worked hard to fight for all Californians, I will work hard to fight for the proper direction and sustainability of our party.

 

As a working class individual myself, I understand and am in touch with the issues that face those for whom we fight.  I have helped protest for affordable housing in San Francisco and Los Angeles when gentrification becomes the norm in every city in California, worked with disability rights advocates to give those not represented a voice. I have helped advocate for single payer healthcare and employment for people who have a hard time finding work.

 

I can relate to everyday life experiences with my own personal story.  I have Medi-Cal and Medicare health insurance and my experience and need of it has given me the appreciation for social services that I would not otherwise have if it were not for the State of California providing these services for me and other Californians. I fight for these issues everyday. I have Cerebral Palsy and I don’t quit and stop, I fight for everything I get and that is what I will continue to do for the people in California.

 

During this time of change, I ask for your vote and, ultimately, your trust in my abilities to help shape the party to reflect what we believe in. As someone who uses such programs as Medicare and Medi-Cal, I understand the complexities of a progressive, albeit complicated and far from perfect, health care law. As an outsider, I am not swayed by backroom party agenda or big money politics. As a Californian, I understand what is at stake and what every day people want from THEIR party. We serve you.

Donald Trump, release your taxes!


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


 

Fiona Ma

We are almost 100 days into Donald Trump’s presidency, and we still haven’t seen what every presidential candidate in the past 48 years has offered up freely: his full tax returns.

It’s outrageous.

The American people have a right to know what conflicts of interests that our president may or may not have. That is why I am joining leaders across the nation calling on President Trump to release his taxes, and and why I am attending the Tax March this Satu‌rday, A‌pril 1‌5.

As a CPA and a member of the Board of Equalization, I’m fighting for full transparency in how the government spends your money and for honesty from every government official who holds office. That’s why I’m running for California Treasurer: I’m going to fight for the people of California every day, standing up to President Trump or anyone else who gets in the way.

Your voice in this battle is absolutely necessary, so I’m asking you to join me in demanding that President Trump release his taxes now.

Tell President Trump: The American people deserve full transparency. Release your tax returns once and for all!

If you want to show the Trump administration that you won’t be silenced, I also encourage you to join me and march in one of the numerous Tax Marches across the country this Sat‌urday.

Together, we will hold our government — and every government official — accountable to the American people, each and every day. Thank you for doing your part.

In Peace and Friendship,

Fiona Ma, CPA
