AD33 - San Bernardino County
What are Assembly District Delegates?
Every two years, the CA Democrats elect 7 self-identified females and 7 other than self-identified females from each Assembly District in CA as delegates to the state party. Those who are elected will have a chance to vote for the new party chair and other leadership. The race is hotly contested and will determine how welcoming, grassroots-focused and innovative the party becomes or how beholden it will remain to big money interests.
Delegates elect Party officers, endorse candidates for statewide, legislative and congressional office, attend the annual convention, network with other Democrats, represent your constituency, promote the California Democratic Party agenda, and vote to endorse resolutions and ballot measures.
You get 14 votes for delegates, 1 of which you must also vote for Executive Board Representative.

Your Progressive Executive Board Candidate
Vote for Delegate AND Executive Board Rep.
My name is Stevevonna Evans, and I am asking for your vote for AD 33 delegate and AD delegate Executive board.
As a 24 year resident of Adelanto, I have been a voice for my community. Knowing first hand that actions speak louder than words, I’ve passionately been involved in bringing awareness of the needs of my community to those government entities that have neglected us for far too long.
My frustration with that negligence led me to realize the only way to bring resources and change to my community was to step into the shoes of those who govern.
In 2017 I set the goal to become an elected official in my city. The decision was not hard to make. The disparity of resources and the deliberate policies that were keeping opportunities unattainable for my friends, family, and neighbors was clear. That sobering realization solidified my mission and I was confident that I needed to fight for them.
In 2018 I started my grassroots campaign on a financially tattered shoe string. However, the outpouring of support from so many both near and afar energized and renewed me and together WE were able to get my message out and accomplish what so many said was impossible.
Today I am the newly elected councilwoman for the city of Adelanto and the first African American woman to ever hold this seat.
I now want to represent our Assembly district 33 as your AD delegate and your Executive board representative to continue to advocate for our district.
Affordable higher education
Making our government transparent and accountable.
As your delegate I will be responsible for supporting and endorsing candidates for State office and vetting propositions for California.
As your choice to represent our district I will bring the same commitment, drive, and passion to succeed in bring our district to a noted and respected district in California.
Please vote Stevevonna Renee Evans for AD33 Executive Board and Delegate.
I’ve been working for change in the High Desert, let me tell you a little about myself: I am former special needs teacher of 5 years, a mother of 2 boys who attend our public schools, and have been working for change in our area. I led the March for Our Lives march to bring attention to gun violence in our area and demand officials address this issue. I volunteered on the 2018 campaigns, lending my time and expertise. I have had the opportunity to speak with people about their concerns and their dreams at their homes. I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to contrbute as a campaign manager for a local candidate.
I am a concerned resident of the Hi Desert region since 1992 who sees that the Hi Desert can be a better place to live for everyone by 2030. Our elected leaders have neglected our concerns and our hopes and dreams that we have for our families and children. We have the tools to change from ‘Victimville, Desperia, Felony Flats, etc., we just need the people to do it.
The Hi Desert needs a voice in the supermajority Democratic Party and needs to push for policies that affect our area: livable jobs, adequate transportation funding for road safety and managed growth, and bring more services, such as using the homeless funds and bringing more healthcare up here. I have been volunteering in this area for several years, I want to continue to work for the people of the High Desert and give a voice to our oft-forgotten region and needs. I urge you to vote for me as assembly delegate and be a part of improving lives in the High Desert Assembly District 33.
I am getting involved because the 33rd assembly district and the 23rd senate district must elect Democrats to local offices. We have many local issues here that are not being represented properly and I am sick and tired of the elected representatives ignoring their constituents.
We, the Democrats of AD33, representing the High Desert and Mountain Regions are coming upon a historic crossroads in the coming elections in 2020. We will have the opportunity and responsibility to decide the direction our State and Nation will take.
The choices you make today will decide those delegates who will proudly carry the banner of progressive ideals and be the voice in Sacramento, the State Democratic Party and our State and Nation.
Politically, I have been instrumentally involved in local, State and Congressional campaigns.
A member of the County Central Committee.
The State Democratic Veterans caucus, the African American caucus, Chicano Latino caucus and a honorary member of the High DesertYoung Dems.
Member of the Tri-Community Democrat Club, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference HD and the NAACP Victorville chapter.
As a disabled Vietnam War Veteran I bring a unique perspective of the needs of our veterans.
As a Retired Public Transportation Supervisor I see the challenges to bring resources to our communities.
A resident of the high desert (AD33) for more than 24 years, I have seen the growth of our communities and how the opportunities have not kept up.
We lack sustainable jobs, housing, health services and education.
As your delegate, joined with others, we will vet and lay our endorsements for candidates who will address these issues and vote on propositions affecting us all in California.
My Commitment; I have the time and resources to faithfully attend all required meetings and conventions and promise to voice our needs.
I humbly and it is my honor to ask for your vote to represent Assembly District 33, as your delegate to bring forth a new positive change to our State.
My name is Jay Johnson and I’m a 14 year resident of the High Desert and specifically a 7 year resident of Adelanto, The City of Unlimited Possibilities. I’m a community activist and advocate for social justice, and equality. I’m a currently an executive Board member of the High Desert SCLC as the Director of Legislation.
As we arrive at the intersection of sweeping International change, we can no longer sit at the red light watching other cars pass us by. As a member of Assembly District 33 our light has now turned green but it is up to us to drive this vehicle of change in the direction that will bring forth the most positive and long-lasting benefits to the residence and inhabitants of this District that has been so long forgotten about. The face of our democracy has changed. The diversity has increased and voices are being heard across the nation. Assembly District 33 is not a exception of that diversity, but rather a reflection thereof. Let’s no longer be complicit with being overlooked. There is strength and power within this district that needs to be utilized and put into action. The light is green. Let’s put the pedal to the metal, and vote for me as one of the people behind the wheel as we take this voyage to demanding the representation we both need and deserve. I pledge to be your voice, and your choice for change.
2018 will stand to be the historical pivotal point in our State Politics. Orange county a long time held Republican bastion has fallen to our Democratic ideals.
2020 will be our challenge to flip San Bernardino county, more specifically Assembly district 33 aka the High Desert and mountain region to Blue.
This challenge will be met by our AD delegates who will be responsible for the endorsements of candidates and state propositions. This is a crucial and important process in our State to insure our values and priorities are being voiced by the chosen candidates within our party.
My name is Paul Marsh and I would be honored to represent you and our district as your AD delegate. A resident of over 50 years has given me the unique perspective of seeing our community grow over the years.
However, I have also seen the emergence of poverty, injustice, homelessness and so many other social ills. These issues must be strongly held priorities in our future elected officials both local and Statewide.
As an activist in our community I have been a member of the NAACP, previously held the vice president seat. Currently the president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference High Desert chapter. Currently hold a seat in the Victorville City Planning commission. A veteran of the US Army and advocate for veterans’ benefits.
I have actively organized and participated in local actions against injustices against individuals and our communities. We need representatives who recognize the needs of our area and are willing to carry that message to Sacramento. As your Delegate I will pledge to you I will only vote for the benefit of our communities. Please vote Paul Marsh AD 33 delegate.
