Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark Gonzalez released the following statement following outlandish and inappropriate remarks made by Neal Zaslavsky on social media:
“I was shocked to read the insensitive and downright distasteful statements Neal wrote on his Facebook page following the loss of a loved one of a DSCC member. I applaud CDP Chair Eric Bauman for demanding and accepting Mr. Zaslavsky’s resignation from the CDP Credentials Committee. I am currently looking in to my options related to Mr. Zaslavsky’s relationship with LACDP going forward.
“As your new Chair, I am committed to maintaining an environment conducive to thoughtful conversation and ultimate understanding. If anyone feels that they are a victim of or have been a witness to harassment, bullying, or hateful actions of any kind within LACDP, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take the appropriate measures.”
