The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.
For months, I have been carefully considering each candidate for the position of Chair of the California Democratic Party. Given their attributes and experiences, I have come to the conclusion that Eric Bauman is the best candidate for this job.
Eric has been a strong supporter of rural counties for longer than I have been active in the Party – 15 years. From the start, Eric has been a source of encouragement and inspiration. He truly cares about our rural counties, and he understands the importance of supporting our hardworking activists in these areas. He comes to our meetings, dinners, and activities, when virtually no one else will.
From the beginning of my service as Rural Caucus Chair, he personally got involved and provided resources, counsel, and information. He helped our rural activists to become more sophisticated and effective. He arranged meetings with urban legislators from around the state to raise awareness of rural issues. Those meetings were instrumental in getting a bill passed in both houses of the State Legislature without any opposition at all! Unanimous votes from both parties in both houses! That would never have happened without his assistance.
Eric’s genuine affinity for rural California and his extensive experience are what we need in today’s challenging political climate. He will not only lead the way forward for California, but will provide a model for the rest of the nation to follow.
I am proud to endorse Eric Bauman and I am honored to join other rural activists and leaders in supporting Eric. Please click here to join #TeamBauman and visit www.EricBauman.com/Vision to see Eric’s vision to raise the California Democratic Party to the next level.
