California School Employees Association (CSEA) endorses Dave Jones for Attorney General.

The 238,000 member California School Employees Association (CSEA) has endorsed Democrat Dave Jones for California Attorney General.

“Dave Jones is a fighter for working families,” stated CSEA President Ben Valdepeña.  “Dave Jones will stand up to the anti-worker agenda of the Trump Administration and help protect California’s progressive values.   Dave Jones is one of California’s most effective elected leaders; he will be an outstanding Attorney General.”

CSEA, founded in 1927, is one of California’s largest and most respected unions.  Their 238,000 member classified employees work in vital roles in school districts across the state, including cafeteria, para-educators, transportation, office and clerical, and maintenance.  They have played a leadership role building large coalitions of public employees to fight for adequate school funding, worker safety, health care and secure retirements.

CSEA is an influential member of the California Labor Federation (AFL-CIO).

“I have worked closely with CSEA on numerous issues as a member of the State Assembly and as Insurance Commissioner,” responded Dave Jones.  “They represent the very best of the labor movement in California, professional, dedicated and effective.  I am deeply honored to have their support.”

Dave Jones has served as State Insurance Commissioner since 2010.  Previously he was a member of the State Assembly, member of the Sacramento City Council, Special Assistant and Counsel to United States Attorney General Janet Reno, and a Legal Aid attorney.  He is a graduate of DePauw University, Harvard Law School and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.

As State Insurance Commissioner, Dave Jones has run successfully for statewide office four times.
