ACSS President Arlene Espinoza with Connie Leyva (for Senate SD20) at the ACSS Board of Director's meeting on September 20, 2014 in Ontario, CA.

ACSS' Political Program is in full swing due to the upcoming elections on November 4th. During the ACSS Board of Director's meeting in September 2014, ACSS was delighted to have Connie Leyva appear as a guest speaker.  Leyva knows and understands the struggles facing State Supervisors.  In 1995, she became a Union Representative and 7 years later, went on to become the first woman president of a UFCW (United Food and Commercial Workers) local union in Southern California. Leyva's leadership in the labor movement and her dedication to worker’s rights has made her committed to working toward fair pay and better working conditions with her time and resources.  ACSS knows that Leyva will stand up for the rights of supervisors, managers and other excluded employees.

Support Connie Leyva and other ACSS-endorsed candidates by volunteering now in this critical seat for Senate District 20.  Or email connieleyvaforsenate@gmail.com.

Posted: 10/9/2014

October 5th, Frank Ruffino (VP of Governmental Affairs) and PAC Chairman Reynold Roth attended Tim Sbrantis’ Bocce Birthday Bash fundraiser at the Roundhill country Club to support his run for the AD16 Assembly seat. They are pictured here with the current the AD16 assembly member, Joan Buchanan, who will be termed out this year. Joan gave Sbranti her full endorsement, noting his experience as an educator and background in local government were a great fit for this district. Like Joan we expect Tim Sbranti to be a great advocate for ACSS. If you have some time to volunteer see Frank Ruffino’s 10/2/14 post on our website and find out how you can help in this or one of the other critical elections seats we are targeting.

To help out and volunteer for Tim Sbranti's campaign, contact Calvin Sherwood, Sbranti's Volunteer Coordinator, at (925) 212-7915.

On September 12th, Executive Vice President Elnora Fretwell and Vice President of Governmental Affairs Frank Ruffino, attended an event for Lt. Gov. Newsom.  They were able to talk one-on-one with Newsom and share our goals for ACSS, it was encouraging to know that he knew about ACSS and was willing to work with us.
