Meet Club Endorsed Josh Becker, Running for the California Senate

Endorsed by Coastside Democrats

The Coastside Democrats and friends will have the opportunity to hear Josh Becker, the Democratic candidate for the California Senate, District 13, speak on Sunday the 13th, from 2-3 pm. District 13 has been represented by Club friend Senator Jerry Hill, who is termed out and cannot run again. Josh is opposed by a Republican and is very likely to win the seat. Our Club endorsed his candidacy last week.

This is an excellent opportunity for Club members and guests to hear directly from Josh and to ask him questions. He comes from Menlo Park and is interested in learning more about the issues on the Coastside.
