2014 Endorsements

On July 9, the Ward 21 Democratic Committee met to consider endorsements for contested races in the 2014 Democratic primary. After thoughtful discussion, we voted to endorse:


Members cited Warren Tolman's progressive record, including strong support for women's reproductive rights and leadership on environmental protection; his demonstrated commitment to campaign finance reform; and his plans for the Attorney General's office, including increasing efforts to combat gun violence and sexual assault on college campuses.

No other candidates received enough votes for the Committee's endorsement, but in the other statewide races, our votes were similar to the Democratic state convention, with Steve Grossman placing first for Governor, Steve Kerrigan for Lieutenant Governor, and Deb Goldberg for Treasurer.

We encourage our community to visit warrentolman.com and votestevetompkins.com to learn more about our endorsed candidates and then vote for them on Tuesday, September 9.
