DEMCCO Endorses Levin, Boerner Horvath; Rates Diaz and Lawson-Remer Qualified

On July 27, 2019, DEMCCO members resoundingly endorsed Mike Levin, 49th District Congressmember and Tasha Boerner Horvath, 76th District Assemblymember for their 2020 races.  The vote for endorsement in the Board of Supervisors, District 3 race failed to reach the 60% threshold for any candidate or for “No Endorsement.”  Candidates Olga Diaz and Terra Lawson-Remer were subsequently voted as “Qualified.”

DEMCCO’s endorsement means that candidates can count on DEMCCO and its members for support in their campaigns.  The 2020 race is on.  What are you going to do to insure victories for our candidates?
