Progressive slates are formed for the upcoming ADEM election

Make sure to vote in the upcoming ADEM elections in the Democratic party to elect progressive representatives to the statewide body.
There is a progressive slate in each Assembly District running in this year’s election during the Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEM). Voters in our communities are heavily organizing for this event, which will elect delegates to the California Democratic Party. Many members of the California Democratic Party see these elections as "inside baseball" and not accessible to grassroots Democrats. Each slate hopes to bring the elections to the voters, and bring progressive values to the state party.

The slate running for Assembly District 17 is:

AD 17 Reform Democrats
Shanti Singh
Mia Satya
Kitty Fong
Gloria Berry
Lorraine Bowser
Gloria Archuleta
Jane Martin

Kevin Ortiz
Bahlam Vigil
Zhihan "Han" Zou
Brad Chapin
Otto Pippenger
Gabriel Markoff
John Avalos (also running for E-board)

The AD 17 Reform Slate is competing against Assembly member David Chiu's "United Resistance" slate. Following the progressive victory in AD 17 two years ago, we expect this race to be competitive and highly contentious, with turnout predicted to reach 1,500 people.

The slate running for Assembly District 19 is:

AD 19 UniTING Slate
Queena Chen
Kaylah Williams
Amy Bacharach
Brigitte Davila
Susan Pfeifer (also running for E-board)
Dorie Paniza
Selina Sun

Alan Wong
Basem "Sam" Manneh
Benjamin "Ben" Gonzales
Robert "Rob" Chua
Thomas Li
Gabriel Medina
Amar "AJ" Thomas

This slate is in coordination with Assembly member Phil Ting. Following a challenge from progressive Democrats two years ago, Assembly member Ting and the delegates formed a unity slate for this election cycle.

The election for AD 17 takes place on Saturday, January 12 from 10 am – 1 pm at the Women's Building in San Francisco. The election for AD 19 takes place on Sunday, January 13 from 10 am - 1 pm at the Doelger Cafe in Daly City.
