Wendy Wayne 2012 General Election Voter Education and Registration Grant Preliminary Report

In June of 2012, CSEE awarded five grants to community-based organizations and coalitions to fund voter education, registration and engagement activities.  Activities were to begin after the primary elections and conclude at or before the November 6 General Election with reports due on November 30.  Grants ranged from $500 to $2,000 with a matching contribution requirement.

As of this writing, grant reports have been turned in by three of the five grantees.  Reporting of exact numbers impacted was much better this year than in the previous election grant cycle, but still has some room for improvement.  CSEE’s logo was included on almost all of the documentation and sign in sheets used and distributed at these events.  While CSEE’s visibility did not increased to the point of community-wide recognition, all of the volunteers working on these grant activities certainly are aware of CSEE now.  Our message is clearly reaching parents, providers and community members that early care and education is an important political issue and parents need to be actively engaged in the political process.

Early Education Champions Win Big in June Primary

CSEE PAC-Endorsed Assembly Candidates Holly Mitchell, Anthony Rendon, Richard Pan, and Roger Dickinson move on to the November General Election

SACRAMENTO– Four state assembly candidates endorsed by the Californians for the Support of Early Education’s Political Action Committee (CSEE PAC) have qualified for the November General Election, with a fifth contest possibly advancing an endorsed candidate as well.

 

The primary-leading candidates include incumbents Holly Mitchell (Assembly District 54), Richard Pan (AD 9), and Roger Dickinson (AD 7), as well as first time candidate Anthony Rendon (AD 63). In the hotly contested Assembly District 46, CSEE PAC-endorsed candidates Andrew Lachman and Brian Johnson are in the top four, with less than 100 votes separating the runners-up and a recount likely. These successful campaigns demonstrate that even in a time of severe budget shortfalls, voters will reward leaders who have a strong platform to support high quality early education for all of California’s children.
