AD12: San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties
What are Assembly District Delegates?
Every two years, the CA Democrats elect 7 women and 7 men from each Assembly District in CA as delegates to the state party. Those who are elected will have a chance to vote for the new party chair and other leadership. The race is hotly contested and will determine how welcoming, grassroots-focused and innovative the party becomes or how beholden it will remain to big money interests.
Delegates elect Party officers, endorse candidates for statewide, legislative and congressional office, attend the annual convention, network with other Democrats, represent your constituency, promote the California Democratic Party agenda, and vote to endorse resolutions and ballot measures.
You get 14 votes for delegates, 1 of which you must also vote for Executive Board Representative.

Your Progressive Candidates
Registered Nurse, board of director California Nurses Association, mom, activist, Chief NurseRepresentative
I am a registered nurse in the Central Valley and I see the devastating effects of racial and income inequality, lack of healthcare, the inability to earn a living wage and the climate crisis has on my patients. I advocate at the bedside for my patients everyday and I also advocate in my community. I spent time on the nurses Bernie bus during the election because it was obvious to me that Bernie could help heal America. I am a progressive thinker who is desperate to see change in the Democratic Party, our state and our country. I will do my best to band with others and be the change I want to see.
As Executive Director of the North Valley Labor Federation, I fight every day to make sure the working people of the Central Valley and their families get a fair shake. I truly believe in the concept of “stronger together” both for unions, and organizing in general. In a recent years, I’ve felt that divisions within the Democratic Party have limited our ability to affect progressive change. As a true progressive, we need to fight that our party is run by people interested in improving the lives of others and create a party that reflects those values. I believe we had a presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, who espoused these values. Unfortunately, we let it slip away with disastrous results.
As the current Executive Board member representing AD12, I’ve fought to ensure progressive voices are heard loud and clear. I intend to continue to do so and am part of a slate of like-minded people ready to help disrupt the status quo and create and amplify progressive voices in the state party.
