“Steve Dunwoody is a distinguished former serviceman who knows what it takes to make progressive change happen"
LOS ANGELES, CA - Our Revolution, the grassroots group founded by Senator Bernie Sanders after his 2016 presidential campaign, has announced its endorsement of Steve Dunwoody for California State Assembly representing District 54. He is also endorsed by the local Our Revolution group, The Monkey Wrench Brigade.
Dunwoody grew up the son of union auto assembly workers and community business owners. During his time at Kent State University, he enlisted in the Air National Guard which helped him pay for college.
“Steve Dunwoody is a distinguished former serviceman who knows what it takes to make progressive change happen,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “From his experience serving in the Obama Administration, to working on Sen. Bernie Sanders’ campaign, and with Vet Voice, Steve has a strong record of advocating for working people and will work hard in the state legislature to pass policies that benefit everyday people, not special interests."
“This campaign is all about sending a fighter to Sacramento, to never back down when it comes to advocating for the people of our district, and to reject the corporate special interests who have bought too many of our politicians, and drowned out the voice of the people,” said Dunwoody. “I am ready to head to the state capital and fight in a way that the people need now more than ever. I am so proud to have the endorsement of progressive warriors, like Our Revolution, who will help our campaign win.”
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates up and down the ballot, they are transforming our political and economic systems to make them responsive to the needs of working families.
