East County Democrats for Action has endorsed Mark DeSaulnier for Congress. East County Democrats For Action (ECDFA) joins other local democratic groups in support of Mark DeSaulnier including the Antioch Democratic Club and the El Cerrito Democratic Club.
"The East County Democrats for Action overwhelming endorsed State Senator Mark DeSaulnier for the 10th District Congressional seat vacated by Ellen Tauscher," ECDFA President George Van Hasselt said. "The vote well exceeded the 60% majority necessary to obtain the club's endorsement. The members, some of whom were local Labor Leaders, not only showed great enthusiasm for State Senator DeSaulnier's candidacy but pledged to campaign actively for its success," Van Hasselt added.
"I am honored to receive the endorsement from the grassroots democratic group East County Democrats for Action in my campaign for Congress," State Senator Mark DeSaulnier said. "I am the only candidate in this race to have raised a family and run a business here, and have represented Contra Costa County as Mayor, County Supervisor, Assemblymember and State Senator. I understand the needs of local families and the challenges faced by local small business owners. When I am in Congress, I will continue to fight for issues that matter most to East County residents, including universal healthcare, improved transportation, and job creation."
