Standing for AD 41
In 2019 Tina Fredericks stood from AD 41 for the California Democratic Party Central Committee.
I’m a second generation Chinese American. My mother went to UC Berkeley when CA public colleges were tuition-free. I’ve lived in Pasadena with my husband and two girls for 8 years. I’m a former public school math teacher. I was a stay at home mom for 8 years and a small business owner for 3 years. Currently I’m a software engineer. Since 2016, I’ve worked on a dozen Democratic campaigns, beginning with Bernie Sanders until the 2018 campaigns for Katie Hill and Gil Cisneros. My first action in supporting Bernie was driving to Las Vegas with my then 8 year old knocking on doors. I’ve hosted dozens of phonebanks, canvassing, and volunteer meetings. I became the President of Democrats of Pasadena Foothills in 2018 – doubling its membership. I wrote a letter to the CA Senate Health Committee in support of SB 562 Healthy CA Act and got 25 delegates to cosign the letter. As a renter and member of Pasadena Tenants Union, I worked with retired people on fixed incomes, young people struggling to make a living, and long-time residents experiencing steep rent increases.
Those midwest Democrats who voted for Obama twice and voted for Trump in 2016 are not racist – they desperately need a party that fights for them. They need a party that fights for policy that improves their lives in an economic way. This party needs to actively grow its base. More people of color. More working families. More. Young. People. A Bold Platform is the answer to Trump and a sustainable model for Democrats to lead the country into the future. If we are to save the planet in 12 years, status quo with some tweaks is not going to cut it.
Taking back the House in the 2018 midterms should be a testament to our great potential. That if enough of us try, the impossible becomes possible. Americans are waiting to find out what the Democrats are fighting for. Let’s not wait for 2020 to give them an answer. My top priorities for 2019-2021 are supporting rent control/just cause eviction, Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and passing the Schools and Communities First Act to bring billions of dollars to public schools and social services.
