The APA Democratic Caucus of Alameda County would like to thank everyone who participated in the endorsement meeting for Southern Alameda County on Sunday, September 23, 2012. It was a great display of our democratic system.
Here are the candidates that have received endorsements:
State Assembly, District 25 – Bob Wieckowski
Alameda County Board of Supervisors, District 2 – Richard Valle
Pleasanton Mayor – Cheryl Cook-Kallio
Fremont City Council – Sue Chan
San Leandro City Council
District 2 – Ursula Reed
District 4 – Benny Lee
Fremont Unified School District – Ann Crosbie and Reshma Karipineni
Hayward Unified School District – Peter Bufete and Sara Lamnin
This is the criteria from our By-Laws used to determine the endorsements:
Article IX. Endorsements: All endorsements must get 60% of votes of the eligible members present and voting on the office or issue in question provided that the membership was notified that endorsements would be entertained in its notice of the meetings, and at least 7 days in advance of the meeting. Dual endorsements shall be permitted. Additionally, all ballots shall contain spaces for eligible members to vote for ”No Endorsement” or to “Abstain” and such votes shall be considered for the purposes of determining the required 60% threshold for endorsement.
Again, thank you to everyone who participated and for your support.
