The Berkeley Progressive Alliance, Berkeley Citizens Action and the Berkeley Tenants Union are co-sponsoring a meeting on Sunday February 11 to endorse candidates in the June 2018 Primary Election for California Assembly District 15, which includes all of Berkeley, and is which is currently represented by Tony Thurmond who is not seeking re-election. We will also be considering endorsement of a candidate for Alameda County District Attorney.
BPA-BCA-BTU Endorsement Meeting, South Berkeley Senior Center, 2939 Ellis Street, corner of Ashby, Sunday February 11, 2018 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Who Can Vote: To vote on the endorsement of candidates, you must be a member in good standing of at least one of the sponsoring organizations.
BPA members must pay dues for calendar year 2018 to receive ballots. Those dues, as adopted at our October membership meeting are $25.00 a year regular dues; $10.00 low income and student. Dues may be waived in cases of hardship. People may also pay at a sustaining rate of $50.00 (or more) if they wish. Anyone who is already a member (you have paid dues at some time since the organization’s founding in Nov. 2015) may renew their membership at any time prior to the meeting and may pay their 2018 dues when they sign in.
How To Renew Your Memberhip: We encourage members to renew their membership in advance of February’s meeting by using our online payment page: https://berkeleyprogressivealliance.org/joinrenew/
Any dues payment from this date forward will be considered payment for calendar year 2018 and will entitle the member to participate in voting at all membership meetings and nominating and endorsement meetings that take place in 2018.
We have a questionnaire for candidates and we will post their responses online prior to February’s meeting.
