Endorsement Meeting Results

AD 15 Endorsement Forum

About 115 members of Berkeley Progressive Alliance, Berkeley Citizens Action and Berkeley Tenants Union attended today’s forum to hear from Candidate for District Attorney and Assembly District 15.

Alameda County District Attorney:

Pamela Price won the endorsement for District Attorney

Total valid votes: 65
Pamela Price: 52 votes 80%
Nancy O’Malley: 8 votes 12%
No endorsement: 5 votes 7%
(Doesn’t total to 100% because of rounding)

California Assembly District 15:

Jovanka Beckles won the endorsement for Assembly District 15, in the 2nd round of ranked choice voting

Total valid votes: 74

Results for first choice count:

Jovanka Beckles: 44 votes 59%
Ben Bartlett: 9 votes 12%
Dan Kalb: 7 votes 9%
Andy Katz: 5 votes 7%
Judy Appel: 4 votes 5%
Rochelle Pardue-O 3 votes 4%
Owen Poindexter 2 votes 3%
Buffy Wicks no votes (Her child was taken to the hospital so she was not able to attend)
Cheryl Sudduth no votes
No endorsement: no votes
(Doesn’t total to 100% because of rounding)

When the second choice votes of Owen Poindexter’s 2 first choice voters were counted, Jovanka Beckles picked up the additional vote that she needed to reach 60%. Counting of votes stopped at that point. Poindexter was dropped first and his second choice votes were counted first because he had the lowest number of votes. Beckles certainly had additional second choice votes that she didn’t need.

Head counts suggest that about 115 people attended including candidates and those of their supporters who were not members of any of the sponsoring groups.
