AD73: San Clemente & Dana Point Area

What are Assembly District Delegates?

Every two years, the CA Democrats elect 7 women and 7 men 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.

Detailed Information

William Summerville

My pursuit in this area of public service comes from taking on previous and current societal roles that consist of: pastor, military chaplain, hospice chaplain, hospital chaplain, doctoral student, grief counselor, veteran, Lyft driver, father, son, brother, and husband. Last but not least, I was fortunate enough to earn the top position of elected delegate in representing the 48th Congressional District of California at the recent Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PA.
