DUNWOODY CERTIFIED AS QUALIFED WRITE-IN CANDIDATE BY SECRETARY OF STATE FOR 54TH ASSEMBLY DISTRICT SPECIAL

Campaign leafleting and instructional video are key part of push for April 3 election

LOS ANGELES, CA – Voters in the 54th Assembly District will be able to write-in Steve Dunwoody, to fill out the rest of Sebastian Ridley-Thomas’ term as Assembly Member for the 54th District, on April 3rd, the California Secretary of State’s office has declared.  Dunwoody has been certified as a qualified write-in, and the campaign is now engaged in a district-wide educational campaign to inform voters how they can write him in on their ballots.

The campaign is leafleting voters across the district with an instructional sheet, which can be viewed here.

And the campaign is promoting a video that walks voters through the process of the write-in.  That can be viewed here.

Besides being a candidate in the April 3rd election, Dunwoody is a candidate for the June 5th primary election to determine who will go on to run in November 6th for a full term as the district’s Assemblymember.  Dunwoody’s name will appear on that ballot, and no write-in campaign will be needed for that election.

Dunwoody says that while a write-in campaign has its challenges, he is confident.

“We’re not going to let bureaucratic red tape get in the way of this district having a truly progressive, independent voice speaking for them in Sacramento,” Dunwoody said.  “Our supporters are revved up and so are the many progressive organizations and community activists who have endorsed our campaign.  They’re ready for someone to be their champion, in Sacramento, not someone who will have to answer to the political establishment at the end of the day.  As the only campaign which is relying on in-district donors and not taking a cent of corporate contributions, we’re looking forward to giving voters a chance to decide on next Tuesday, April 3rd, and in the June 5th primary.”
