Vote Benjamin Hauck and the Blue Revolution Slate for California Assembly District 70

-UPDATED FOR THE 2021 ELECTION-

Democratic Party voters across California will have the opportunity to vote for Assembly District Delegates to represent their communities within the California Democratic Party. I am proud to announce that I am running to represent the people of Assembly District 70, representing Long Beach, San Pedro, Signal Hill and Avalon. I will be running on a slate of community organizers and activists called Blue Revolution.

I ran as an Assembly District Delegate in 2019 and you elected me to represent you, and I am incredibly honored and grateful. I hope I represented you well these past two years. I would be honored to serve and represent the people of Assembly District 70 once again, bringing that same activist spirit to the California Democratic Party.

I have spent my entire life in Southern California, and have been an active organizer in Los Angeles and Long Beach. I am a trained Climate Reality Leadership Corps ambassador, and helped to mentor a group of environmentalists in Los Angeles. My environmental activism expanded after going to Standing Rock and seeing the injustice and oppression firsthand. Upon my return, I helped to create and lead the Divest LA campaign, successfully getting the City of Los Angeles to commit to divesting from Wells Fargo bank. This led to the creation of Public Bank LA and the California Public Banking Alliance, grassroots organizations fighting for public banking. I was one of the lead organizers on the Measure B campaign and also organized for AB 857, the first public banking legislation to be implemented in 100 years. I was a Bernie Victory Captain, and spent hundreds of hours volunteering. I am a proud member of the Democratic Socialists of America — Long Beach. Recently I helped create Public Bank Long Beach and have been volunteering with Long Beach Community Table, delivering food to families in need.

Do you believe it is important that the people of our district have a voice in the California Democratic Party? That our communities hardest hit by an extractive economy should be listened to? That frontline communities and frontline workers are represented in a political party that controls so much of our lives?

Or do you believe that powerful politicians funded by Big Oil and Big Corporations have our best interests at heart, and should have absolute control of the party?

I believe we need to empower our communities. I believe we need to empower YOU. I believe that your voice needs to be heard in the party. That is why I am running. And that is why I am asking for your vote.

The California Democratic Party has one of the most progressive platforms in the nation, but we have to do the work to actually implement the platform. We must ensure the party truly represents the people, and fights for our communities. Money in politics and corporate influence in our government are serious problems that must be confronted head on. We cannot allow the will of Main Street to be subverted by the corrupting influence of Wall Street. As an Assembly District Delegate, I vow to fight for the people and the planet, and never be influenced or pressured by corporate interests or political insiders.

Please vote for Benjamin Hauck and the entire Blue Revolution slate. Thank you!

Additional information on the elections:

Every two years the California Democratic Party runs elections for Assembly District Delegates. The Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEMS) are held to elect seven “self-identified female” and seven “other than self-identified female” citizens to represent the Assembly District they are registered in. There are 80 Assembly Districts across the state of California, meaning there are a total of 1120 Assembly District Delegates. Delegates are elected by registered Democrat voters in their district.

Assembly District Delegates to the Democratic State Central Committee (DSCC) are responsible for planning and attending informational meetings throughout the region and working with other DSCC delegates throughout California to represent their community. AD Delegates vote on behalf of the community they represent at CDP Regional Meetings, the California Democratic Party Convention, and those who are also elected to serve as an Executive Board member are responsible for voting and representing their community at the semi-annual E-Board meetings.
