After a candidate Q&A and seven thoughtful statements from members both for and against endorsement, we're excited to announce the chapter voted to endorse Steve Dunwoody in the race for California's 54th Assembly District, which includes Culver City, Baldwin Hills, Century City, Crenshaw, Leimert Park, Mar Vista, Mid-City, West Los Angeles, Westwood, Ladera Heights, View Park and Windsor Hills.
Check out the breakdown below:
1. Should DSA-LA endorse Steve Dunwoody for Assembly in District 54?
Yes - 73%
No - 24%
Other - 3%
The results come after an endorsement of Dunwoody from the Electoral Politics committee, who wrote in a statement: "Dunwoody’s platform deeply aligns with the policy goals and values of DSA-LA: he wants to create a state bank, repeal Costa-Hawkins and the Ellis Act, ensure workers’ rights to collectively bargain and work fair schedules, end cash bail, divest from private prisons, ban fracking, ban any California law enforcement collaboration with ICE, and create a single-payer healthcare system for California—and has been endorsed by the California Nurses Association for his dedication to that goal."
