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.

That’s the second endorsement announced by Dunn who just hired Irvine’s Luis Aleman to be his Latino Outreach Coordinator for Santa Ana, Orange and Anaheim.

For Mr. Jabbar, its a dual endorsement .. he backed Lou Correa for Congress back in October.

    “Dual” — hahahahaha. You can only vote for candidate one in that process; that vote at CDP is what matters. Correa’s courtesy endorsements are beginning to unravel.

      I would pay money to see the look on your face when Lou Correa is sworn into Congress and all you kool aid drinkers are on the outside looking in because you followed the Cult of Joe Dunn. Lou may not be Mr. Liberal but he is there for the community when it counts. Now go back to Brea and get a real job you bloviating bloviator to quote the great Gustavo Arellano.

        Before I answer you … do you already know what the term “non-sequitur” means or am I going to have to explain it?

          Mr. Jabbar is a delegate courtesy of being Carena Francke-Patone’s alternate and is obligated to vote as she wants. Since she runs Dunn’s campaign, she can cast a ballot for her client while handing this obligation to an elected official who will do her bidding for her. But please ignore all this to claim Correa’s endorsements are unraveling.

      One vote and Correa’s endorsements are unraveling? So Dunn has one union endorsement and one elected official publicly declared. And this crowns him? Campaign has a long way to go

    Sounds like an ABJ endorsement… from someone who knows Jordan well.

    The Presidents comments tonight notwithstanding, I don’t believe an endorsement by a guy named Al Jabbar is positive given the electorate. He could have a Nobel prize and it wouldn’t matter.

      Al Jabbar is a smart guy and a fine Democrat; there’s no shame in an endorsement from him at all.

      And there are plenty of Arabs, Muslims, and non-racists in Anaheim who don’t have the same knee-jerk reaction you do, “vasquez.”
