    Tell Asm. Matt Dababneh: Stand up for the will of your constituents, not corporate interests

    The growing influence of corporate money in Sacramento -- from wealthy donors to corporate backed independent expenditures and political action committees (PACs) -- is making it harder and harder for California to lead as a model for the nation.

    Assemblymember Dababneh is part of the problem. While accepting corporate contributions, he has a record of voting against the desires and best interests of his constituents.

    In fact, Asm. Dababneh’s voting record ranks him as one of the LEAST progressive Democrats in the Assembly, despite his district’s clear preference for more progressive policies.

    He has received sizable contributions from Big Oil, Big Tobacco, and Big Insurance. These cozy relationships all potentially influenced how unaccountable he has been to his constituents, voting NO on a bill to help secure equal pay for women (AB 1017) and another which would require double-time pay for workers on Thanksgiving (AB 67).

    Asm. Dababneh also voted against two important healthcare bills (SB 260 & AB 533) and a bill that would have stopped deportations for minor drug offenses (AB 1352), among other legislation he opposed that would uphold the values of his constituents and the Democratic Party.

    We must join together to hold him accountable.


    “I am appalled at the excessive influence corporations and the wealthy have in the halls of our state Capitol. Their priorities and profits are consistently placed over the well-being of everyday Californians. Based on what I’ve seen on The People’s Report Card of California, I believe that you are part of the problem. I respectfully ask you to stand up to these moneyed interests and demonstrate courage by representing your constituents, as well as the values of the Democratic Party.”
