Young Democrats Endorse Montanez
As well, unless there is a typo, it looks as if the club has not taken a stand in that ever controversial 38th Assembly race.
I want to thank everyone who took the time to attend our general membership meeting last night, where SFVYD made endorsements for the June '06 Primary race. Over 80 people attended the event, packed tight into Millikan Middle School's library. It was exciting to see so many young voters engaged in local politics. I want to extend a special thanks to the many candidates who took the time to come and address YD's, including Congressman Brad Sherman, Assemblymember Cindy Montañez, Mayor Abbe Land, Councilman Alex Padilla, Jonathan Levey, Jim Alger, and LACDP Chair Eric Bauman (representing Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi.)
Candidates recommended by the Executive Board needed a majority of voting members to win endorsement. After balloting, the list of candidates endorsed by SFVYD is...
* US Senate - Dianne Feinstein
* 24th Congressional District - Mary Pallant
* 27th Congressional District - Brad Sherman
* 28th Congressional District - Howard Berman
* 29th Congressional District - Adam Schiff
* Lt. Gov: John Garamendi
* Controller: John Chiang
* State Superintendent: Jack O'Connell
* Secretary of State: Debra Bowen
Local Senate/Assembly/Senate Races:
* 20th SD: Cindy Montañez
* 37th AD: Ferial Masry
* 39th AD: Richard Alarcón
* 40th AD: Lloyd Levine
* 41st AD: Jonathan Levey
* 43rd AD: Paul Krekorian
* Sierra Madre City Council: Joe Mosca
Once again, thank you to all of the SFVYD members who came to cast their votes. Now let's translate these endorsements into feet on the ground! SFVYD will be holding two campaign events every month from now until June. Check back on the weblog and sign up for our newsletter to stay informed.
