Santa Ana, Calif. – The California Young Democrats endorsed Joe Dunn for California’s 46th Congressional District at this weekend’s California Democrats State Convention, announced the Dunn campaign. Joe was also recently endorsed by the Orange County Young Democrats, making Joe the official Democrat of choice for young Democrats locally and statewide.

“Joe Dunn is the most qualified candidate to fight on behalf of our young Democrats to advance the progressive causes we care about, including student debt, fair wages, and equal opportunity for all,” said Eddie Kirby, President of the California Young Democrats. “His consistency and willingness to take on the big fights against special interests to help young people get ahead is exactly the leadership we need in Congress.”

“Thank you, California Young Democrats, for endorsing me for Congress,” said Joe Dunn. “I’m excited to have the energy, ideas, and commitment of California’s new generation of leaders partner with me to break through the gridlock in Congress and make our economy more fair for young people working hard to succeed.”

Joe Dunn has thirty years of experience standing up to the establishment, and holding big corporations and government bureaucracies accountable to Orange County’s middle-class families. He’s empowered communities through the legal system to stop polluters and fought price-gouging drug companies. He investigated Enron and other unethical energy companies manipulating prices. He took on oil companies ripping off consumers at the gas pump and stood up to gun manufacturers to make our neighborhoods safer.

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.

Joe lives with his wife, Diane, in their Santa Ana home of nearly twenty years. They have two adult children, Sarah and John. California’s 46th congressional district includes the cities of Anaheim, Garden Grove, Orange, and Santa Ana.
