For our October General Meeting, we have invited Joy Silver, Candidate for the 28th California Senate District, and Jesse Melgar, Deputy Secretary of State, to speak.
According to Joy SIlver’s website, she’s “running for State Senate to fight to protect our progressive values and work to find practical solutions to the challenges we face.
“We can’t afford more political games and extreme right-wing agendas in Sacramento. We need practical solutions to the issues that matter to our communities – job creation, housing, universal healthcare coverage, building the new clean energy economy, and safe and secure retirement. And we need the courage to stand up for our American values of equality, justice and opportunity.”
Jesse F. Melgar serves as Deputy Secretary of State under Alex Padilla.
A Riverside native, Melgar is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles where he double majored in Political Science and Chicano Studies. He is a candidate for a Master’s of Public Policy from the University of California, Riverside’s School of Public Policy.
