Here are the *actual* progressive ADEM candidates & slates for California

On the weekends of January 12-13 and January 26-27, the California Democratic Party will have elections for delegates to the CDP central committee.  Seven women and seven people of other genders will be elected as delegates  in caucuses in each Assembly district.  The following video describes the process and the challenge:

The CDP has about 3300 delegates, one third appointed by state and national elected Democratic officials, another third from central committees and the last third elected directly by Democratic voters at bi-annual caucuses.  Delegates elected this month will vote to 1) elect a new Chair for the CDP, 2) vote on the endorsement of candidates to the California Legislature and the US House of Representatives, 3) vote on the platform and structure of the party and 4) vote for DNC members.

Democratic Legislators are running slates with delegates to make sure that they get to stay in charge of the party, continue to be able to use it to launder campaign contributions, and assure that their endorsements are not challenged.  Reportedly urged by Assembly speaker Anthony Rendon, they are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to make sure that our independent, #unbossed, progressive candidates are not elected.

The Berniecrat/progressive movement, meanwhile, is running our own slates of candidates trying to give ordinary people a say in the Democratic Party.  We need everyone’s vote and support.

The following is the list of #unbought and #unbossed progressive candidates and slates that have the support of the Bernie movement and its ideological allies.   These slates & candidates are mostly the same as those listed in the “official” site of the progressive movement, adems.vote – but while they list slates for all districts, we list individual candidates in districts that don’t have one single full, progressive slate.

Assembly Districts:
123 – 456 – 78910 – 11 121314 15 1617 – 1819 – 202122 23242526 – 272829303132333435 – 36373839 – 40 – 4142 434445 – 46474849 – 5051 52 – 535455565758596061 – 6263 – 6465 – 66 – 676869 – 7071 – 72737475767778 7980

Don’t know in which AD you live? Find it here. Districts in red are having caucuses  on Saturday, January 26th.  Districts in gray had their caucuses on Jan. 12-13.  Candidates listed in green have won.

Note: the hours listed are for registration and voting.  You must be in line by the end of the voting period to be able to vote.  Doors open 1 ½ to 2 hours before registration, with speeches about ½ hour later.

Selection criteria for appearing in this page

The candidates listed above are solid progressives committed to fight for social, economic, racial, gender and immigration justice, as well as human rights and the environment.  Bernie Sanders run for the presidency in 2016, mobilized thousands of Californians and brought them into the political system.  About 200 of us became delegates for Bernie Sanders to the Democratic Convention, where we fought to push the Democratic Party to the left.  After the convention, we set our sights into reforming the California Democratic Party and pushing Sacramento to pass more progressive legislation.  Hundreds of Berniecrats and progressive allies ran for ADEMs in 2017 and we won hundreds of seats.   For the last two plus years we’ve been working together and we’ve gotten to know one another, who is solidly progressive, and who is less so.

This list was compiled by Bernie delegate and Progressive California editor Margarita Lacabe, with input from dozens of Berniecrat and progressive activists throughout the state.  Names have been added and substracted as more information comes about.   Whenever possible, we are including candidates who have a record of progressive activism and who will be independent of elected officials in casting their votes. Names in bold are those whose progressive activism is vouched for by the editors of this post.

There are Two Things You Can’t Avoid in Campaigns: Lawn Signs Disappearing and Disputes Over Endorsements

campaign signsIt’s election time in the US, so it’s time for candidates in towns throughout America to take to social media to complain about their campaign signs being stolen.  You can’t really blame them, in particular new candidates who haven’t experienced this phenomena before.   They drive around town and they see that some of the signs they put up are now gone, or they get a call from a supporter saying that the sign they put on their lawn is no longer there.   The first conclusion that comes to mind is that their opponent took them.  Indeed, perhaps the candidates themselves had been tempted to remove their opponent’s signs, but had exercised self control and not done so.  It’s easy to believe their opponents were weaker.

In reality, the disappearing of candidate lawn signs is so ubiquitous, it happens so often and in so many campaigns that you can’t just blame opponents for it – unless you believe everyone who runs for office is unethical and a would-be-thief.  Indeed, I’ve worked in the campaigns of candidates whose opponents complained their signs had been removed, and I know for a fact my candidates’ campaigns hadn’t taken them – so clearly it has to have been someone else.

Here are my theories as to what happens to the signs:

– If left in public spaces, they are often removed by Public Works or even by neighbors that find them offensive.

– If left in private commercial property, they may be removed by the owner or an employee – unaware of whether the candidate was given permission to put it up (many candidates don’t even ask).

– If placed in the actual lawn of a home:

  • The homeowners may actually have not  wanted the sign or they thought better of it and they removed it themselves, but don’t want to let the candidate know this.
  • Another member of the household may have removed it without letting the homeowner know (my own daughter has been doing this for the last couple of elections!).
  • Landscapers may have removed it to work on the lawn and not put it back
  • People passing by or neighbors who dislike the candidate or the sign itself may have removed it.
  • The sign may have been damaged by children or pets and quietly removed and thrown away by their keepers.
  • The sign may have been vandalized or stolen by the sort of people who vandalize public property.
  • And yes, occasionally it may be that a member of an opponent’s campaigns has taken them down.  Though in general, I would suspect a supporter of the opponent rather than someone actually working in the campaign.  It’s just too risky for the latter to be caught.

So if you are a candidate running and you are having your signs disappear (as you are likely to), please consider all of these possibilities before you start blaming your opponent and planning revenge!

Election season means one other thing: endorsement drama.   There is always a candidate ready to cry foul over their opponent claiming an endorsement that they supposedly did not get.   I’m sure that this happens occasionally, but most of the time there is a better explanation:

  • The named endorser actually endorsed the candidate and forgot about it! (This happened to Congressman Mark DeSaulnier who denied he had endorsed Senator Ellen Corbett in her race to challenge Eric Swalwell, only to be presented by an endorsement slip he had signed a year before).
  • The named endorsers had endorsed the candidate but changed their mind and did not communicate this clearly to the candidate.
  • The named endorser had endorsed the candidate but were challenged on it, and are now pretending the endorsement never happened at all (this can be done with or without the agreement of the candidate).
  • The named endorsers had endorsed the candidate but withdrew their endorsement and the candidate failed to update their literature or website.
  • In cases where a name has been removed, the named endorsers had endorsed the candidate but withdrew their endorsement and the candidate does not want to draw attention to this fact
  • The named endorser communicated support for the candidate which the candidate incorrectly interpreted to be an endorsement.

So, again, before jumping to the conclusion that your opponent is making up endorsements, consider one of the more likely possibilities outlined above.
