Standing for AD 9

In 2019 Peter Brogan stood from AD 9 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.


Although I had only been in Sacramento for less than a year at the time, I ran to be a delegate three years ago with a team of progressive and labor activists in AD 9 and across the Sacramento region. I ran the first time and am running now because I believed that the California Democratic Party needs to be transformed into a democratic, grassroots vehicle for social justice and systemic transformation.

As a working-class kid raised by a single mom, who went from being a high school dropout that was on a precarious path in life to a PhD and a career as a union organizer in Sacramento, I work tirelessly every single day to build the capacity of workers to change the world by helping them to build their collective power in the workplace and in their communities.

Democratic socialism puts the needs of people before profit, which as newly elected New York Congress woman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has so beautifully said, means that, “every American should have stable, dignified housing; health care; education—that the most very basic needs to sustain modern life should be guaranteed in a moral society.” This is the world that we need to fight for and to do that we need a Democratic Party that is truly democratic and rooted in the power of neighborhoods, unionized workplaces, and in our Assembly Districts.

If re-elected, I will work with my fellow delegates on the Progressive-Labor slate to continue our work to deepen and expand this kind of progressive, grassroots power as the model for our Democratic Party and the kind of social, economic, and political institutions that we need to be a compassionate, just, and equitable society that meets the needs of all our people. A vote for me and my Progressive-Labor slate will help move us towards making such a world a reality.[3]

DSA victories

At the California Democratic Party 2019 District 9 election, Harjit Singh Gill, a No Party Preference voter and member of Democratic Socialists of America, registered as a Democrat to support his friend Peter Brogan, who won a seat. Sacramento Democratic Socialists of America endorsed the progressive slates in Districts 7, 8 and 9 – each of which won handily — and reported that 11 DSA members in the region won delegate seats.[4]
