    Tell Asm. Tom Daly: 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 Tom Daly 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. Daly holds the distinction of being the LEAST progressive Democrat in the Assembly, despite his district’s clear support for more progressive policies.

    He has received hefty support from the oil and energy industry, including Chevron, PG&E, and Sempra Energy. This comfy relationship with Big Oil and Big Energy may explain why he voted against two game-changing climate bills -- SB 32 and AB 356 -- in direct conflict with his constituents’ support for fighting climate change.

    Asm. Daly also voted against a bill that would have curbed an unjust, racist policy called Civil Asset Forfeiture (SB 443), and a bill that would pay workers more fairly for working on Thanksgiving (AB 67), 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.”
