Infiltrating the Dems
Every two years, California Democrats elect delegates from across the state, who then convene along with appointed party officials at the party’s Assembly District Election Meeting (ADEMS). ADEMS determines what the party stands for, making this a significant opportunity for socialists to push the California Democratic Party to the left and away from the interests of union busters, the landlord lobby, fossil fuel polluters, the corporate hospital and pharmaceutical lobby, the prison industrial complex, the corporate donor class, and others that stand against our values.
Our members are running for ADEMS delegate seats so that we’re in the room when the Democratic Party sets its agenda and makes decisions on endorsing candidates for public office. We’re fighting for issues that matter to the working class in California, like Medicare for All, Green New Deal, and Defunding the Police.
The DSA members listed below (in alphabetical order by first name) are running for ADEMS delegate seats on slates across LA County and have pledged to fight for our democratically-decided socialist values.
Assembly District 41 - Elizabeth Trejo, Ellen Dalbey Finkelpearl, John Doyle, Jordan Vannini, Joshua Ulises Marmol, Marguerite Renner, Mindy Pfeiffer, Patricia Hernandez, Robert M. Nelson, Ryan Bell, Savanna Salter, Stephanie Schoen, Steven Gibson, Susan Castagnetto.
Standing for AD 41
In 2019 Jordan Vannini stood from AD 41 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.
My name is Jordan Vannini and I am running for re-election as an Assembly District Delegate in AD-41 where I have lived since 1982. As a lifelong Democrat I have worked in national and mid-term election cycles since 1980. My activities include voter registration, canvassing, phone banking at the SEIU and California Nurses Association, GOTV campaigns, erecting yard signs, staffing information booths at farmers markets, carpooling elderly and disabled voters, and a rotation as a local Block Captain. I am current President of my Neighborhood Association and an active participant in local affairs. I am a lifetime member of the ACLU and Common Cause.
Today I am ready to continue and increase my commitment to my community as a State Delegate. I am asking for your vote. For 40 years I have worked in the local construction economy starting as a common laborer. I understand the meaning of hard work. Today I am a senior project manager. In my role on public works projects I have negotiated union hires for local residents and have promoted minority and women-owned businesses. Every day I work with people from many cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
