The California National Organization for Women has endorsed Democratic candidate Susan Talamantes Eggman for State Assembly District 13.
Announcing the endorsement, California NOW President Patty Bellasalma stated, “With the state budget cuts disproportionally affecting women and children, there has never been a more important time to ensure the Legislature is filled with advocates for women’s voices as well as communities that have been largely ignored. Susan clearly understands that challenge and our organization is confident that she will work to move our state towards a more level playing field.”
Bellasalma continued, “Susan has a track record on the Stockton City Council as a leader who works with all sides to get things done. She understands that strong leaders can’t turn their backs just because times are hard; we must work within our system of government and with the people we serve to find solutions to the problems our state faces.”
