Democracy For America Endorses Mayor Aja Brown!
Great news everyone! This is from today’s California Playbook by Politico…
POLITICO EXCLUSIVE — Democracy for America, the progressive national grassroots PAC launched in the wake of Howard Dean’s president campaign, is taking a new tack in the Trump era, committing $500,000 to municipal elections this cycle and launching endorsements of promising candidates at the local level.
— On Friday, the organization will launch its first California municipal endorsement — backing Compton Mayor Aja Brown. Jim Dean, Democracy for America’s chair, calls Brown “a rising star of the progressive movement,’’ saying that “as the youngest elected Mayor of Compton, she has helped reinvigorate the city through innovative industry-specific vocational training, fought human trafficking by ending hourly motel rentals, and mandated 35% local hiring for all city projects through the First Source Hiring Agreement.”
