Contra Costa ACCE Wins Big at the Ballot

CONTRA COSTA - ACCE Contra Costa ran a phone bank that contacted many thousands of voters in Contra Costa County that helped elect ACCE organizer, Melvin Willis, Claudia Jimenez and Gayle McLaughlin to the Richmond City Council, Taylor Sims to the Pittsburg School Board, ACCE member, Eduardo Torres to the Ambrose Park and Rec Board and Tamisha Walker to the Antioch City Council! We also helped pass Measure U in Richmond which is a business tax and Measure X, a countywide sales tax. Since the election we have met with all of these elected officials to move ACCE members’ agenda. We are also working closely with our coalition allies to make sure Measure U and Measure X funds are used to fund services our community needs.
