ALEX ROOKER TRIUMPHS, RE-ELECTED VICE CHAIR OF CA DEM PARTY
SACRAMENTO, CA — Tonight, Alex Rooker was re-elected First Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party. The vote took place at the California Democratic Party’s convention at the Sacramento Convention Center.
Alex Rooker, the newly re-elected First Vice Chair of the California Democratic Party stated:
“I am extraordinarily grateful for the confidence placed in me by the delegates of our California Democratic Party. I’d like to thank my supporters from the bottom of my heart. Their support is a testament to the enormous progress that we Democrats have made in recent years, and it represents a bold validation of our accomplishments here in the Golden State – from equal pay to safeguards for workers’ rights, to tough environment laws, a $15 minimum wage to protections for immigrants and more.
“I am profoundly honored to have been re-elected as our state Party’s First Vice Chair and I’m eager to continue pushing for progressive, forward-thinking policies in California, while simultaneously working to ensure that our state takes center stage in the battle against the reckless and xenophobic Trump Administration, fighting tooth and nail against its backwards agenda.”
