→ Ever since his election to the Assembly two years ago, Alex Lee has been the kind of progressive elected official that he promised to be, and the kind of elected official that we need to see more of in California. In his first term, Alex Lee authored bills to create social housing, repeal the egregious Ellis Act, enact language justice in public meetings, tax the rich, and getting corporate money out of election funding. Even though many of those policies never crossed the finish line onto the Governor’s desk, they’re representative of the kind of bold action that is required to move us forward in the right direction. In addition to introducing courageous legislation, Alex Lee has been a reliable vote for progressive bills and progressive causes. And with a more progressive legislature in place, those bold ideas may be able to gain new traction.
