Dual Endorsement: ACSS Endorses Newsom and Chiang for CA Governor

Posted: 5/4/2018 Tags: election governor politics Tags Views: 2679

For the first time in ACSS history, gubernatorial candidates were interviewed in person by our ACSS Executive Committee at ACSS Headquarters. The Executive Committee asked each candidate key questions and listened to each one’s responses on how they would benefit ACSS members. After the meetings, ACSS chose to dually endorse both Gavin Newsom and John Chiang in their races for Governor of California. Both Newsom and Chiang promise to protect the defined benefit pensions of state employees, address salary compaction, and seek input of state supervisors and managers on how to solve these complex problems.

ACSS Endorsed Candidates – Election Results November 2016

Posted: 11/10/2016 Tags: election legislation legislature politics Tags Views: 2325

ACSS Legislative Analyst Ted Toppin describes the results of the election in regards to ACSS-Endorsed Candidates. Overall, our ACSS-Endorsed Candidates had a tremendous amount of success.

For ACSS, the state election results were pretty spectacular. The ACSS-endorsed legislative candidate won in 80 of the 82 races in which ACSS took a position. The one ACSS-supported ballot measure – Proposition 55 (Tax Extension for Education) – passed easily.

In the Assembly, the ACSS candidate won in 63 races and lost in two. In contested open seat contests, ACSS was 7-0, including wins in hard fought victories by Jordan Cunningham (R-Central Coast) in AD 35, Raul Bocanegra (D-San Fernando Valley) in AD 39, and Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) in AD 66.

The two losses were those of incumbent legislators facing serious challenges. In AD 47, incumbent Democrat Cheryl Brown (San Bernardino) lost a tight race to a challenger from her own party who accused her of not acting like a Democrat. In AD 60, ACSS- endorsed Asm. Eric Linder (R-Corona) lost to a Democrat in a suburban Riverside County seat that increasingly votes Democratic.

The 17 state Senate candidates endorsed by ACSS all prevailed. In open seat races, ACSS was 7-0. This includes races in which the ACSS Democratic candidate had to beat another Democrat: Bill Dodd in SD 3 (Napa), Nancy Skinner in SD 9 (East Bay), and Steven Bradford in SD 35 (Gardena). In what were considered three of the bigger partisan Senate face-offs, the ACSS candidate won in each: Scott Wilk (R-Santa Clarita) in SD 21, Anthony Portantino (D-Pasadena) in SD 25, and Henry Stern (D-Thousand Oaks) in SD 27.
