OP-ED: Holding politicians accountable at election time

As we head into a heated election season, with the 2020 Democratic California Presidential Primary right around the corner, we can expect to hear politicians up and down the state repeating their talking points and pandering to different subsections of voters. Unfortunately, far too often these politicians are saying one thing and doing another.

No Political Cover for Anti-Farm Worker Votes

As Pick Justice Action was working to champion the rights of farm workers, I was surprised to see the San Diego Farm Bureau extend an olive branch (or bouquet of flowers rather) to one of the chief opponents of farm workers rights legislation, Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez.

Did Lorena Gonzalez Vote Against Farm Workers?

Last month, Pick Justice Action launched a six-figure ad buy targeting Assembly Member Lorena Gonzalez across TVradio, print and digital advertising, to highlight what they deem as her anti-farm worker record.

But as Pick Justice Action points out, once you look at her record, her pristine pro-worker image gets blurry.

Opinion: Labor Advocate Lorena Gonzalez Betrays California Farmworkers

Last week, farmworkers’ rights group Pick Justice Action launched a six-figure public awareness campaign to highlight the anti-worker record of Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez. The assemblywoman has recently been elevated on the national stage as a champion of workers, but her past tells a different story.

Does Elizabeth Warren Endorse Rep. Gonzalez’s Anti-Worker Record?

“I have a plan for that!” has become Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) new trademark catchphrase to stand out in a crowded field of presidential hopefuls. To her credit, she has fired off numerous plans to cement her status as the field’s resident policy wonk. Whether those plans are prudent is a different story.
