AD60: Corona & Jurupa Valley

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.

Detailed Information

Fryda Gonzáles

At an early age, I was exposed to Democratic Socialist ideologies such as education and health coverage for all. These concepts paved by real progressives like Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy were the basis of my humanitarian and political journey. My parents, both educators in South America, spent their careers building schools and teaching to the most underprivileged students in Peru while reinforcing the concepts of equality, respect, and compassion.

Before my teenage years, we migrated to California and quickly realized that in fact, the United States of America was the land of opportunity, and my parents reached the American Dream. However, those opportunities once enjoyed in America have diminished with the passing of time, and we “progressives” must diligently work to rebirth those same opportunities experienced by the baby boomers. While attending Westminster High School, I was in Student Government and received the highest Leo Award for excellence in community service. Throughout college, I plugged into politics as a journalist covering Loretta Sanchez winning campaign against Republican incumbent Bob Dornan. I also continued my humanitarian work with Flying Samaritans bringing medical clinics to El Hongo, Mexico and serving as an interpreter.

While pursuing my second BA in International Business at CSFU, I completed an International Internship traveling throughout Europe and consequently studied a year in France. It was then, that it became clear that Democratic Socialism is a reality and is functional. That experience itself propelled me to be fully involved throughout the Bernie Sanders campaign as a volunteer Field Organizer and leading a campaign office out of my home.

I was an elected Bernie Delegate and spearheaded OurVotesCountRiverside, a coalition that oversaw voter irregularities within Riverside County. In August, I traveled to North Dakota delivering emergency supplies to Standing Rock and continue working to raise awareness. In addition, I also worked directly with our local candidates like Bill Hedrick, Tim Sheridan, Jorge Lopez and Brian Colla to produce a series of campaign videos that they shared on their social media accounts. I am confident to have the leadership, vision, experience and education to help shift our country’s priorities by choosing real progressive platforms, as well as, leaders.
