From DAA President Patti Sulpizio:
The Democratic Alliance for Action congratulates our fine candidates for a fight well fought. We are thrilled for Julie Olsen who won her seat on the Saugus School Board, Edel Alonso who will join the Santa Clarita Community College District Board of Trustees and Henry Stern who will represent the 27th District the CA State Senate.
Sadly, for us and the rest of our candidates, the outcome of the election was not what we wanted. We feel very proud and grateful to Bryan Caforio, Johnathon Ervin, Christy Smith, Steve Fox, Jerry Danielsen, Lynne Plambeck, Stacy Fortner, Bonnie Nicolai and David Ruelas for putting themselves on the line for Democrats. Being a candidate is arduous and demanding on the individual and family. Our candidates were fully committed, prepared and ready to serve. We salute them.
We appreciate the support and time our members contributed to the campaigns and the unprecedented resources the Party directed here to the Caforio for Congress, Christy Smith for Assembly and Johnathon Ervin and Henry Stern for State Senate races. The Party recognized our potential to turn these districts blue. We must stay energized, organize and mobilize to retain that support. The midterm and Statewide office campaigns have already begun. As our LA County Democratic Party chair, Eric Bauman stated, “Now is not the time to for us to give up. Now is the time for Democrats to stand up & fight!”
With warmest regards,
Democratic Alliance for Action
