Americans for Democratic Action of Southern California (ADA SoCal) has officially endorsed Steve Dunwoody in his run for the California State Assembly. Dunwoody had previously announced his intent to become the representative for the 54th Assembly District following the surprise resignation of Sebastian Ridley-Thomas
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, notes that the 54th Assembly District includes the Culver City Real Estate area as well as parts of Los Angeles, Inglewood, Ladera Heights, and View Park-Windsor Hills.
Clifford Tasner, President of ADA SoCal, stated, “Steve Dunwoody is exactly the kind of activist that ADA SoCal admires. He’s a veteran who has used his voice to speak out on environmental issues and economic justice. He went up and down the state with Bernie Sanders trying to help pass Prop. 61, which would have reduced the cost of prescription drugs for Californians. He’s an example of someone who talks the talk and walks the walk. He campaigns for this assembly seat not out of any sense of long-held desire for the seat, but because he sees a deep societal need and wants to help fill it. ADA SoCal looks forward to working with Steve Dunwoody when he gets to Sacramento, to continue building a more equitable, sustainable, just society and world!”
Dunwoody, for his part, graciously accepted the endorsement, stating, “I’m beyond humbled to have the support and endorsement of the ADA, here in Southern California, as we continue to show that our campaign is the leading progressive voice in the race. For decades, the ADA has been the tip of the spear on progressive solutions to the issues that face us. From Eleanor Roosevelt to today’s leaders, the ADA has been the home of America’s most stalwart progressive voices. It is my hope that our campaign will follow in the tradition of those leaders, and I look forward to fighting alongside the ADA in this campaign, and in Sacramento.”
Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor, is excited to see how the election plays out over the coming months and wishes all the candidates luck.
