Assembly candidates Dan Wolk and Bill Dodd have collected organizations from statewide groups in the past week.
The California Nurses Association, California School Employees Association and Service Employees International Union have thrown their weight behind Wolk, Davis’s mayor pro tem.
“I am honored to have the support of these health care workers, school support staff, social workers, state workers, security officers, college professors, home care workers and janitors because they share my commitment to standing up for the California Dream,” Wolk said in an email message to supporters.
“I look forward to working with them to fight for California’s working families and middle class.”
The Peace Officers Association of California, made up of 880 member organizations representing more than 64,000 officers, will back Napa County Supervisor Dodd. He also picked up the support of the Lake, Napa, Solano and Sonoma Deputy Sheriffs’ Associations.
“Bill Dodd has a long record of supporting public safety; he understands what works and what doesn’t,” said Jon Thompson of the Napa Deputy Sheriff’s Association in a news release.
Said Dodd in the release, “As a Napa County supervisor, I’ve gotten to know the people of the Sheriff’s Department and the tough work they do, day in and day out. In Sacramento, I will bust my tail to give them what they need to do their jobs.”
Wolk and Dodd will face their fellow Democrat, Davis Mayor Joe Krovoza, in the June 3 primary. The top two vote-getters advance to November’s general election.
