|I’m running for Lt. Governor because California must continue to lead the way for a better, stronger future for everyone. As a lifelong Democratic activist who has always supported liberal and progressive candidates and causes, I’m proud that our campaign is continuing to draw strong support from Democratic leaders across the state.
My first job after business school was with the California Democratic Party in 1992 when we elected two women to the U.S. Senate and turned California blue. I would be immensely proud to earn your endorsement and the support of the CDP at the convention in February.
In case you missed it, I want to share who has joined Team Eleni so far:
U.S. Senator Kamala Harris: “Ambassador Eleni Kounalakis has dedicated her life to the fight for California values. She is a powerful advocate for immigrants, economic innovation and job creation, and providing all with access to quality and affordable health care. Eleni has the vision and conviction necessary to boldly and wisely lead California into the future. I am proud to support Eleni for Lt. Governor.”
Former CA Democratic Party Chair John Burton: “As Lieutenant Governor, Eleni will work to lower the cost of housing, make higher education more affordable, and defend California’s values of equality and diversity. Eleni Kounalakis has the dedication and vision necessary to fight for all Californians and lead the way to a better and stronger California.”
U.S. Senator Kamala Harris and John Burton join Phil Angelides, former CA Democratic Party Chair and State Treasurer; Christine Pelosi, Chair, CDP Women’s Caucus; Hene Kelly, Chair, CDP Disability Caucus; Norma Alcala, Vice Chair, CDP Chicano Latino Caucus; Susan Rowe, Chief Vice Chair, CDP Rural Caucus; Jenita Johnson Rodriguez, Vice Chair, Rural Caucus; Amy Champ, Regional Director, Region 4; and so many activists and leaders up and down the state.
As Lt. Governor, I will fight hard to advance our economy to make sure it works for everyone, create more affordable homes so families can stay in California, lower the cost of higher education, and protect our values and diversity.
I believe the key to a better future is ensuring our Democratic Party is united and stronger than ever. Please reach out to me any time at email@example.com, so we can share our ideas for strengthening California’s future.
P.S. I hope you will join Kamala Harris and John Burton and add your name to our growing endorsement list. I look forward to meeting you on the campaign trail!
