At their regional endorsement meeting Sunday, local Democratic leaders and activists from throughout the 4th Assembly District recommended Davis Mayor Pro Tem Dan Wolk for the official endorsement of the California Democratic Party.

Wolk received the support of nearly 75 percent of the voting delegates at the pre-endorsement conference held at Green Valley Middle School in Fairfield.

“I am so proud to receive the recommendation of local Democratic leaders for the official party endorsement,” Wolk said. “As a lifelong Democrat, I have always been dedicated to our party’s ideals of justice, equality and opportunity. These are the values that I work for every day — and the values I will take with me to Sacramento.”

Wolk and three other Democratic candidates — Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza, Napa County Supervisor Bill Dodd and Napa County Planning Commissioner Matt Hope — are seeking to fill the seat being vacated by Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis.

All four pursued the endorsement and spoke to delegates on Sunday.

Wolk’s vote total was enough to bypass a caucus vote at the state Democratic Convention in Los Angeles. Instead, his endorsement will be placed on the consent calendar for the full membership of the Democratic State Central Committee in a non-contested vote on Sunday, March 9. Wolk received 68 votes compared to Pope’s 17, Dodd’s four and Krovoza’s two.

Assembly District 4 consists of most of Yolo County, all of Napa and Lake counties, and portions of Sonoma, Solano and Colusa counties.

    Wow! Two votes? It might be time for Krovoza to rethink his options.

    I won't be voting for Mr. Wolk based purely on his attempt to force fluoride into my water source. Tsk!
