Greetings,
The landslide election victory of Barack Obama is nothing less than an
amazing event in the history of our nation. We have, as a people,
overwhelmingly rejected racism, fear mongering, and every sort of lie, to elect a
President that, from the perspective of our union, is probably the most workerfriendly President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected in
1932. President-elect Obama is the first Democrat since John Kennedy to be
elected who comes from outside the South and probably the most progressive
Democrat to win our highest office since FDR. He has pledged to reverse the
disastrous direction that this country has taken for the last eight years and move
our country towards a future where our government truly cares about its peopleall its people-not just the wealthy, the connected, and the extreme conservative.
In California, there are a number of close legislative races, but it appears
that the Democrats will pick up a seat in the State Senate with the election of
Hannah Beth-Jackson to the 19th Senate District seat in the mid-coast area. This
will give the Democrats a 26 to 14 majority in the State Senate, just one short of
the two-thirds majority necessary to pass a state budget. In the Assembly,
Democrats Marty Block of San Diego, Manuel Perez of Indio, and Joan
Buchanan of Danville were elected to seats long held by Republicans. However,
the Democrats lost an Assembly election in the Central Valley, where Democrat
Fran Florez lost to Republican Danny Gilmore in the seat being vacated by
termed-out Assembly Member Nicole Parra (D). One more Assembly race is
still too close to call. Alyson Huber is just about 1,000 votes behind Republican
Jack Sieglock to succeed term limited Assembly Member Alan Nakanishi (R) in
the
foothill
district
just
east
of
Sacramento.
It appears that the balance of seats in Congress may stay
unchanged. Democrat Charlie Brown is about 500 votes behind Republican
Tom McClintock in a hotly contested race to succeed scandal ridden
Congressman John Doolittle, who resigned earlier this year. There may be a
recount
in
that
race.
With regard to the initiatives, there are two initiatives that passed that affect
the Teamsters. Proposition 1A will fund a high speed rail project to go from Los
Angeles to Sacramento, which will not only mean jobs for Teamster members in
construction but for our members who belong to the BLET-IBT and who operate
trains. In addition, Proposition 11, which narrowly passed, will fundamentally
change the way legislative district lines are drawn by moving that responsibility
from the Legislature and Governor and giving it to a citizen's commission. It
remains to be seen how such a Commission will work and how it will affect the
partisan split in the Legislatures of the future.
