preliminary ballot qualification of the recall of the Governor
Nowadays, it may seem like the American people are sharply divided when it comes to politics. Though it may seem like the ideological common ground between parties is shrinking, we the American people, as an electorate, have perhaps never been more united in our resolve to build a more effective government.
"As Los Angeles County works to get our county of 10 million back on track, tonight in his State of the City, Mayor Garcetti laid out a bold, focused agenda to move LA City forward. From major investments in rental assistance, tackling our homeless crisis and pushing a national right to housing” plan, urgently advancing our climate goals, to a pilot program for universal basic income, Mayor Garcetti reminds us that even in the midst of a pandemic, our work for the people of LA continues. I applaud the Mayor for laying out his vision to ensure that the state of Los Angeles City remains strong. Los Angeles Democrats will continue to stand with our elected leaders in the fight for our families and communities."
"On the heels of the American Rescue Plan, today, President Biden laid out his $2.2 Trillion American Jobs Plan, kicking off an important fight ahead for American workers. Investing in critical infrastructure needs - fixing our roads and bridges, expanding broadband, ensuring that communities have clean drinking water, and shifting to clean energy sources not only will have an massive impact on the largest local economy in the nation here in Los Angeles County, but for all Americans. As the president said, it’s going to take everyone involved unions, corporations, Democrats and Republicans to address our socio-economic challenges, overhaul our economy, and reshape American capitalism. I encourage all of our Los Angeles and California Democrats to work to get this legislation passed and on the president’s desk so we can stay on track to building America back better.”
From recycling cans as a kid to casting an electoral vote in the 2020 General Election, Mark Gonzalez worked his way up in politics for decades.
