THE DAILY CALIFORNIAN: California Secretary of State Alex Padilla endorses Buffy Wicks for state Assembly District 15
“In the statement released Thursday, Padilla said Wicks has been a ‘lifelong community organizer’ who prioritizes voting rights and civic engagement. She is also endorsed by U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and gun-violence prevention advocate Gabby Giffords, among others.
‘I wholeheartedly endorse Buffy Wicks for state Assembly,’ Padilla said in the statement. ‘She is a strong, progressive leader who will get results on the public policies we all care about — affordable housing, better education, public transportation and more.’
Wicks’ platform includes addressing housing costs through increasing construction of low-income, middle-income and market-rate housing, paying teachers more and investing in early childhood education, allocating more resources for public transportation and reducing fossil fuels by supporting renewable energy and incentivizing electric cars.”
