An Open Letter To My Fellow Democratic Delegates: Vote for Change, Vote Winograd

By Don Goldmacher
Democratic Delegate

After the 2004 election, many rank and file Democrats decided we needed to be part of the state Democratic party structures both in California and across the country, to insure that our party truly reflected the hopes and dreams of the rank and file voter.

I was among those elected from the 14th AD. Our goal was to bring the Democratic party back to its roots as the party that favored ordinary people, and not the huge multinational corporations that have dominated and distorted our democracy for the past 30 years.

As we approach this weekend in Los Angeles to endorse candidates, pass resolutions, and put forward a platform for our party and candidates, there is one particular race that is catching both state and national attention. It is the race between blue dog incumbent Congressional Democrat, Jane Harman, and Marcy Winograd, a member of Progressive Democrats of America.
