OAKLAND - Luis Rodriguez spoke about his campaign for Governor at a reception at a home in Oakland, California, held on February 6, 2014. Rodriguez was hosted by Laura Wells (Green Party), who is running for California State Controller, [ http://www.laurawells.org/ ], and the Alameda County Green Party. [ http://www.cagreens.org/ ]
Rodriguez spoke about why he is running and his campaign themes of “ending poverty in California” and environmentally sustainable green development. He also responded to questions regarding the interests of Latino voters in the election; how to improve public education; presenting real solutions; campaigning together with Cindy Sheehan (the Peace and Freedom Party candidate for Governor), and whether he is a socialist.
Rodriguez is a best selling and award winning author. His autobiographical book, “Always Running: La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A. ,” which is a cautionary tale about his experience as a gang member, is taught in many high school English literature classes.
