Standing for AD 38
In 2019 Joe Ayala stood from AD 38 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.
I am currently serving my third term as Vice President of NABET/CWA Local 53. My union local represents most of the technicians and engineers who work in the broadcast industry in Los Angeles. Prior to that I served on our local union executive board, and as a shop steward for many years while I was a television news director and KVEA-52, a Los Angeles Telemundo network affiliate. I am a delegate to the Los Angeles County Labor Federation, a member of the Simi Valley Democratic Club, and a voting member of the Ventura Democratic Party Central Committee.
I became politically active in high school, where I worked on a mayoral campaign in my hometown of Laredo, Texas. More recently, I worked with the Katie Hill, and Christy Smith campaigns, as well as the Simi Valley city council and mayoral races. I am seeking re-election for delegate because I believe that I have helped our party get back in touch with the needs of its constituents, but the work is far from over. Working families in California have long been a strong political force for good, and I believe that my standing within the labor community has helped our party to better empathize with California voters.
