District 8

→ In the race to represent Sacramento area voters, Dave Jones brings with him a track record of upholding progressive values, as well as a commitment to supporting community demands, and rejecting corporate influence. During his political career, Dave Jones has served as a legal aid attorney, city councilmember, Assemblymember, and statewide Insurance Commissioner. In his tenure as an elected official, he has earned the respect of many progressive advocates. During his time in Sacramento City Council, he worked with ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) to champion an affordable housing ordinance. It’s because of his allegiance to working-class reforms that he’s being targeted by corporate shell PACs, like Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, which is funded by Chevron. Corporate interests are spending big to prevent Dave Jones from winning a Senate seat, because they’re threatened by an elected who’s accountable to the people.
