State Senator Loni Hancock and former Mayor of Berkeley Tom Bates

Oct 6, 2018 | Blog, Endorsements

I’m incredibly honored and humbled to announce former State Senator Loni Hancock and former Mayor of Berkeley Tom Bates have endorsed my campaign for State Assembly! Senator Hancock and Mayor Bates pushed the progressive movement in California forward for decades, leading the charge for environmental protection, equity in education and criminal justice, embracing diversity, and rejecting violence and unnecessary war. I’m so proud to have their support.

“After attending small meetings with both candidates, carefully reading their websites, talking with supporters of both and finally watching this week’s League of Women Voters candidate forum, we have decided to endorse Buffy Wicks as the best choice for the people of Assembly District 15.

Between the two of us, we have had the opportunity to serve 34 years in the California Legislature. We believe that the person representing this District has a great opportunity to get progressive legislation enacted. It takes the ability to more than talk a good game. It takes the ability to take a good idea and turn into a law. It means working with a broad range of interests and legislators from both sides of the aisle to build winning strategies. We believe that Buffy Wicks has the experience, progressive values, and a demonstrated ability to provide the leadership this District deserves.”
