After months of searching for a Democratic candidate to run in the 37th Senate District special election next month, the filing deadline came and went without our Party finding a candidate to file.
However, upon learning that no Democrat would be on the ballot, Louise Stewardson has stepped up as the write-in candidate for this race.
While it's too late for DPOC to officially endorse, we are providing the following information so that voters who want to elect a strong progressive candidate know to vote for Louise.
As a nurse and mother, Louise is passionate about community, families, and the environment. She will fight for those who do not have a voice in government and is committed to ensuring that Orange County and all of California is a better place for our children and grandchildren.
If you have friends, colleagues and/or family in the 37th State Senate District (Anaheim Hills, part of Orange, Villa Park, Tustin, Irvine, Foothill Ranch, Lake Forest, Laguna Woods, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, and South Huntington Beach), please be sure to remind them about the March 17th special election date and encourage them to vote for Louise.
Turnout in special elections like this tend to be very low so every single vote will matter. Please help us spread the word about Louise and her write-in campaign.
With only a few weeks until Election Day, social media will be vital. Please visit her Facebook page (www.facebook.com/Louisesenate37) and share her posts with your circle.
