Update: Democrats 69th AD Caucus

Fighting Dems 

This just in from Andrew Davey:

Great news from the Land of the OC:

The sensible progressives won!

Today was an amazing day for Democrats in Central Orange County. For one, we had a record SIXTY-ONE DEMOCRATS show up for the caucus. In past years, there weren’t even ENOUGH CANDIDATES in the 69th Assembly District. Also, we had REAL COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS show up and run. I was so heart warmed to see people who actually understand our diverse, working-class communities run…

And I was just ecstatic to see them WIN!

I won a seat on the DSCC, along with three other activists from Orange County DFA. Oh, and the best news is that the rest of the folks who won are real activists who go out in the community and get things done! For once, the Democrats from the AD 69 delegation will represent the best interests of the community, and not some radical fringe that undermines progressive causes. For once, we won’t be under the influence of Lyndon LaRouche supporters. For once, the AD 69 Democratic delegation will not just be discounted as a bunch of “crazy fringe radicals”!

Tonight is a great night for ALL OF US DEMOCRATS in Central Orange County. The people have spoken, and they want a Democratic Party that fights for real progressive values. No more crazy talk over non-issues, because now we’re ready for action!

Congratulations to Andrew and the Raiders, and welcome into the “establishment.”

    Thanks, Chris!

    I’m just so gladdened that sixty-one people came to the caucus today to show their support for real progressive activists who really care about Central OC! I’m just sorry to hear that you didn’t make it in AD 54…

    Well, at least you won’t be hearing of any more worthless nonsense resolutions coming out of our delegation!

    : )

    Congrats Andrew! Thank you for the informative update. I was raised in the 69th AD and consider it my “hometown” . I watched your election closely, and wanted to be there, but, I was voting, and running for election at the same time– in the 70th AD, and… I won, running on the PROGRESSIVE slate! Can’t wait to meet and work with you in San Diego!

    I’m proud to say, both females and males from the Progressive slate won! One other female won, Nancy Kriz, from Newport Beach.

    Now I have another place to wear my new “Democrats have more fun” t-shirt!
