MWPAC ENDORSEMENT NIGHT
After a festive reception at Whipper Snapper Restaurant, the crowd moved to the San Rafael City Council Chambers to listen to candidates who survived primaries and are ready to face off on November 8. MWPAC members voted to endorse/recommend the following candidates
The group voted to endorse Joan Cox and recommend Sam Ruben and Ray Withy for the Sausalito City Council. This race was not part of the primary process.
Members voted to endorse Sheila Lichtblau for Superior Court Judge.
Members voted to recommend Dennis Rodoni for County Supervisor–District 4.
In a slightly different approach, the members heard from Stephanie Margossian, who represented U.S. Senate candidate and California Attorney General Kamala Harris and Susan Horsfall, who spoke on behalf of Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, also a candidate. Both representatives were well informed and provided very helpful information about their candidates.
Members voted to endorse Kamala Harris.
Female endorsed candidates will receive a monetary contribution from MWPAC. The group recommends male candidates in races where there are no qualified women candidates, or when there are more open seats in a race than there are qualified women candidates.
MWPAC’s FPPC Number is 13325045.
MWPAC was formed this year, breaking away from the National Women’s Political Caucus because the older organization ordered its chapters to refrain from recommending men. The Marin Chapter of NWPC had recommended men for years in races where no viable woman candidate was running or when there are more seats open than women to fill them. Women also receive financial contributions to their campaigns, but the recommended men do not.
MWPAC encourages anyone, male or female, who is interested in learning more about local politics or in exploring the possibility of serving in an elected or appointed position to join our organization and attend our programs.
