Tomorrow, 11/6, in the city of San Bernardino three individuals are seeking to keep the city moving towards an agenda of progressive leadership. These three leaders - Rachel Mendoza Clark, Carolyn Tillman, and Rikke Van Johnson - all share common values of community building, with attention focused on safety, modernization, and respectful governance.
San Bernardino faces a moment in which it can choose to turn towards an era of building cohesive leadership, an era that finds itself working in collaborative action instead of mired down in bitter battles, and an finally era of representation at the city level that where justice and accountability matter.
According to the Riverside Press Enterprise's endorsements,
"San Bernardino City Council: Carolyn Tillman would give the 5th Ward an articulate voice, a strong background of community involvement and skills in building cooperation on the council. Rikke Van Johnson offers the 6th Ward solid support for programs to improve the city, good communications with residents and a citywide outlook."
And "San Bernardino city clerk: Incumbent Rachel Clark is a solid administrator who understands the duties of the office. She modernized city record-keeping, helped consolidate city elections and is converting City Council minutes to a paperless system. Her challenger, Joseph Turner, misunderstands the scope of the office and wants to use it for an activist platform. Clark's record and vision for the job make her the clear choice."
We echo these feelings! In San Bernardino let's get out to vote tomorrow for fairness, dignity, justice and progress!
And let this be a jump start to neighborhood organizing and community building, not only in San Bernardino, but in all CA communities where issues like those that these candidates seek to change remain un-addressed. In these three - Rachel Mendoza Clark, Carolyn Tillman & Rikke Van Johnson San Bernardino can have it's own "leaders for change."
