Rep Barbara Lee Issues Statement On Nov 2020 Endorsements Counters Oakland Mayor Schaaf Voting Guide I received an email that contained a statement from U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee, and here's the text, verbatim: Statement regarding Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s Endorsements for the November 2020 Election Oakland, CA – Congresswoman Barbara Lee’s campaign released the following statement today regarding Rep. Lee’s endorsements in the 2020 election. "Congresswoman Barbara Lee has not endorsed any candidate running for the Oakland City Council, nor has she endorsed any candidate running for the Peralta Community College District Board of Trustees. Any reference to Congresswoman Lee on a voter guide or slate card endorsing Councilmembers or Trustees, or any reference to prior Congressional recognition by any of the candidates or the candidates' supporters, is inappropriate and misleading and should not be viewed as an endorsement in any form." For a list of Congresswoman Lee's official endorsements please see below: President & Vice President: Joe Biden & Kamala Harris Yes on 15; Schools and Communities First Yes on 16: Opportunity for All Yes on 17: Free the Vote Yes on 18: Vote for Our Future No on 20: Stop the Prison Spending Scam Yes on 21 : Keep Families in Their Homes No on 22: Protect Drivers and Customers Yes on 25: End Money Bail Yes on Measure SS: Oakland Police Accountability Yes on Measure II: Berkeley Police Accountability Yes on Measure Z: For an Inclusive, Affordable, and Livable Alameda Yes on QQ: A Vote for Oakland Youth The statement is a direct counter to this paragraph by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf in Oakland News Now, here: https://ift.tt/2IAcTRz ...and from her letter that's a voting guide: "I’m also super passionate about electing Derreck Johnson for At-Large City Council – as is Kamala Harris. A 3rd-generation, gay, African American Oaklander raised by a single mother in the Acorn housing projects, he graduated from an HBCU and started House of Chicken & Waffles in Jack London Square, where 70% of employees have been formerly incarcerated. He’s the former Chair of Oakland’s Workforce Development Board and in 2012 Congresswoman Barbara Lee presented him with the City of Oakland’s Citizen Humanitarian Award. His life experiences are particularly needed as Oakland meets this moment to advance racial justice and help our economy recover." Stay tuned.
