“…Dallas Denise Fowler, is a Democratic activist who has injected an unwelcome level of partisanship into a non-partisan race.” --- Los Angeles Times, 2/13/2017
I’ll take that and run with it—literally all the way to ballot box. I’m a Democrat and a Progressive and I’m proud of it. My opponent belongs to the party of our new president and frankly, voters know that there are fundamental differences between the agendas of Republicans and Democrats with regards to education and fiscal management. So maybe in their rush to endorse three men and not a single woman for the Los Angeles Community College Board, the Los Angeles Times either failed to or just ignored the fact that today is a new day and voters care about who they are electing to office—even if that office is "nonpartisan." Voters understand that after last November we are literally in a fight at all levels of government—local, state and federal—to make sure that we have elected people in office who will uphold our core values and beliefs as Americans. I am committed to ensuring that we are making Los Angeles Community Colleges accessible for all to attend. My campaign is building a movement of voters who want to see the community brought back into our community colleges. I am a passionate fighter for equity in higher education and I plan to pursue an agenda that puts the communities of Los Angeles and our students first.
Sincerely yours—the Female Progressive Democratic Activist 🙌🏾 💪🏾 ♀
