It it with great pleasure that I announce the endorsement of the United States Representative for California's Central Coast, Congressman Sam Farr. His support means the world to me as he has been a longtime fighter for sustainable environments, oceans and agriculture. I look forward to building with him for a brighter future in California.

I would like to thank Chairman Eric Bauman and the Los Angeles County Democratic Party for the endorsement of my campaign for Secretary of the California Democratic Party.

It is an honor for me to announce that I am a candidate for Secretary of the California Democratic Party at our April 12-14 2013 convention in Sacramento. In 2010 we captured all nine Constitutional Officer Positions. We continued that victory in 2012 with the reelection of our 44th President, Barack Obama. We also sent the largest Democratic delegation to Congress in the history of California. Thanks to all of our dedicated efforts we achieved a 2/3 majority in the state legislature.
We have a lot to be proud of as Democrats in this country and in California. However, we cannot rest on our achievements as 2014 fast approaches. We must retain the gains made and continue to be strategic in our affirmative action agenda and messaging on jobs, immigration and gun control. Midterm turnout is always more difficult. As your Party Secretary I will bring the experience, leadership and innovation to ensure that our elections and information is delivered in the most efficient and effective manner.
I need your vote to deliver outstanding leadership from 2013- to 2017.
Candidate for Secretary,
California Democratic Party
