Lieutenant Governor

Eleni Kounalakis has lived up to her campaign promises from four years ago, and has done a fine job as lieutenant governor, earning re-election and your vote.

Secretary of State

Shirley Weber, who became secretary of state after Alex Padilla was appointed to the U.S. Senate, is doing an important job with vigor and should be returned to office.

Attorney GeneralAlthough Rob Bonta has been on the job a relatively short time, he has amassed a solid record as being fair-minded – something the previous two attorney generals were not. Bonta deserves your support in November.

State Controller

Lanhee Chen would bring competence and independence to the office of controller, the state’s official accountant. He has drawn support from across the political spectrum, and deserves your vote.

State Treasurer

Jack Guerrero has an impressive resume, which includes helping expose a financial scandal in his city. He also has the financial background and fiscal know-how to become California’s next state treasurer.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

California has the lowest literacy rate of any state, according to a recent survey – one reason why our broken education system needs a major shakeup. Electing Lance Christensen the next superintendent of public instruction would provide just that.
