Have you ever wanted to actually meet the Representatives who are working on your behalf in Sacramento and talk to them about the issues you are most concerned with? Now is your chance!Come meet Richmond Vice Mayor and AD15 Candidate Jovanka Beckles to discuss local and statewide issues important to all of us.
Jovanka is running to represent Assembly District 15, which stretches from Hercules to Piedmont, as incumbent Assemblyman Tony Thurmond campaigns to become the next Superintendent of Public Instruction.
First elected to the Richmond City Council in 2010, Jovanka has been a progressive voice helping to pass a local rent control measure, and calling for greater scrutiny of Chevron, which spent more than $3 million to try to defeat her in 2014. in 2012, Big Soda spent millions against the campaign she supported to tax their deeply unhealthy products and invest the funds in nutrition and youth athletics. Time and again, Jovanka has stood up against well-funded special interests to represent the needs of her neighbors and communities.
Jovanka is a corporate donation free candidate, which means she does not take campaign donations from corporate interest groups, but is funded by the generous donations of her grassroots supporters. Big or small, every donation is needed to keep Jovanka and her campaign working to bring a progressive champion to Sacramento.
We hope that you will come meet Jovanka at our fundraiser and get to know her. We are proud to host such a progressive champion and it is crucial we elect leaders like Jovanka in 2018!
