Local School Board Leader and Democratic Party Activist Al Jabbar Backs Joe Dunn for Congress
Santa Ana, Calif. – Anaheim Union High School District Trustee Al Jabbar has endorsed Joe Dunn for California’s 46th Congressional District, announced the Dunn campaign.
Jabbar is a well-known local Democratic Party activist who has also pledged his vote to Joe Dunn during the upcoming California Democratic Party endorsement process.
“As progressive Democrats, it’s crucial that we help elect candidates with the strongest record on helping to protect our most vulnerable communities and expanding the middle class,” said Jabbar. “Joe has been a stalwart leader for economic justice, standing up to powerful special interests over three decades for Orange County families. He’s the leader our communities can count on to push Congress past the partisan bickering to find agreement on immigration reform, supporting our veterans, and getting more funding into our local schools.”
Joe Dunn has thirty years of experience holding big corporations and government bureaucracies accountable to Orange County’s middle-class families. Joe empowered communities through the legal system to stop polluters and fought drug companies. He investigated Enron and other unethical energy companies manipulating prices. He took on oil companies ripping off consumers at the gas pump. He also stood up to gun manufacturers.
Joe fought to secure millions of dollars from tobacco companies to be used for local health care services and community clinics. While heading the California Medical Association, Joe worked with physicians to help broaden access to affordable health care for Californians.
As an elected official, Joe’s voting record has consistently ranked higher than all other CD 46 candidates with California’s most recognized environmental, women’s choice, equality, consumer protection, and labor groups.
