Today, just one week after announcing the support of S.F. District Attorney Chesa Boudin, BART Board Member Lateefah Simon, and AC Transit Board Member Jovanka Beckles, Jennifer Esteen’s campaign for Assembly announced the endorsement of former AD20 candidate and union organizer Alexis Villalobos.
Villalobos challenged Asm. Quirk in 2020, when it was clear the community was ready for a new leader who would bring their values to Sacramento. Only raising $25,000, Villalobos was still able to earn 43% of the vote, an impressive haul for someone with minimal funding to challenge an incumbent. The performance by Villalobos showed that people want a change and are looking for a progressive leader who can deliver.
