Mis 3 prioridades principales

Biografía

 

Sandré R. Swanson served three successful terms as a Member of the California State Assembly. He was the Chair of the Assembly Labor & Employment Committee and was a vocal advocate for growing the middle class with sustainable jobs. Mr. Swanson also served on the Assembly Budget Committee, Sub-committee on Education Finance; Assembly Committee

on Utilities and Commerce and was the Speaker’s Appointee to the State Workforce Investment Board.

Mr. Swanson is passionate about the plight of troubled and at-risk youth.
As Chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Status of Boys and Men of Color, his committee’s work is widely used by the State today in its strategies for assisting young people. As a result of this work, in 2014 Mr. Swanson was invited to the White House by President Barack Obama and was requested to participate in the President's “My Brothers Keepers “ initiatives.

During his tenure in the Assembly, Mr. Swanson passed landmark legislation dealing with the atrocities of human trafficking—which he calls “modern day slavery.” His legislative work assisted with the development of programs for job training, housing and counseling for the victims of human trafficking—some as young as 12 years old. Several of his laws are prominently referenced on the California Attorney General’s web site. District Attorney offices are using these laws across our State to successfully prosecute human trafficking criminals in California today.

Following his work in the legislature, Mr. Swanson served as Deputy Mayor for the city of Oakland, California.
He worked successfully on growing the City's economy by developing small businesses and jobs. Before his election to the California State Assembly, Mr. Swanson served five years as Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Barbara Lee.

He also served as Chair of the Alameda County Employee’s Retirement Association, Chair of the Oakland Civil Service Commission, and Chair of the Oakland Re-Use and Redevelopment Authority.

Early key endorsements of his campaign for the California Senate include key legislators currently representing the people of the 9th Senate district. They include the incumbent, Senator Loni Hancock, Assemblymember Rob Bonta, Assemblymember Tony Thurman and his campaigns Honorary Chair, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, and more.

Filosofía política

The record will show, that as Chair of the Labor and Employment Committee and Member of the Assembly Budget Committee on Education, I worked hard to make Education California’s top budgetary priority. Thatis why the California Teachers Association (CTA) and The California School Employees Association (CSEA) have endorsed me for the State Senate. I was the leader in the fight to keep Redevelopment Agencies for affordable and senior housing because we are in a housing affordability crisis and I passed laws to reduce neighborhood crime.

I led the fight to keep the “Healthy Family Program” that provided healthcare for 740,000 poor children—and I worked for a healthy environment. The California Nurses Association (CNA) and the Union of American Physicians and Dentists support my record and have joined our campaign. I was the leader in the Assembly on protecting your pensions and retirement security. The Teamsters, SEIU, and AFSCME working families agree and are on our team. I am committed to student loan debt relief and have sponsored environmental justice efforts to stop the spraying of pesticides near schools, to stop illegal dumping in our community and support green jobs and wetland restoration. Our first responders, the City of Alameda and Oakland/Alameda County Firefighters have also endorsed me for State Senate.

I proudly led the State’s efforts to rescue our children from Human Traffickerssome children as young as 12 years old and I increased funding for wrap-around services for our most at-risk youth. I supported small business loans in underserved communities to increase employment opportunities and have been an advocate for Equal Rights and Civil Rights for everyone.

During the budget battles of the recession, I challenged those in leadership to keep the social safety net for the poor, the disabled, seniors and children.

That’s why I’m running for State Senate.

Why I’m running for State Senate

Summary

Progressive Values For State Senate

 

Dear Friend,

Our community has a rich history of progressive politics and for being the conscience of California. I would like to continue that tradition and give a voice to our progressive values in the State Senate.

The record will show, that as Chair of the Labor and Employment Committee and Member of the Assembly Budget Committee on Education, I worked hard to make Education California’s top budgetary priority. That
 is why the California Teachers Association (CTA) and The California School Employees Association (CSEA) have endorsed me for the State Senate. I was the leader in the fight to keep Redevelopment Agencies for affordable and senior housing because we are in a housing affordability crisis and I passed laws to reduce neighborhood crime.

I led the fight to keep the “Healthy Families Program” that provided healthcare for 740,000 poor children—and I worked for a healthy environment. The California Nurses Association (CNA) and the Union of American Physicians and Dentists support my record and have joined our campaign. I was the leader in the Assembly on protecting your pensions and retirement security. The Teamsters, SEIU, and AFSCME working families agree and are on our team. I am committed to student loan debt relief and have sponsored environmental justice efforts to stop the spraying of pesticides near schools, to stop illegal dumping in our community and support green jobs and wetland restoration.

During the budget battles of the recession, I challenged those in leadership to keep the social safety net for the poor, the disabled, seniors and children.

That’s why I’m running for State Senate.

I am respectfully asking you to join progressive champions like Congresswoman Barbara Lee, State Senate President Kevin de León, Senator Loni Hancock, Assemblymember Rob Bonta, Assemblymember Tony Thurmond and support our campaign for the California Senate.

I humbly ask for your support.
