Generation Change Endorses Eleven Millennials Running for Office in California
January 18, 2018
SACRAMENTO, CA - Today Generation Change, the first candidate incubator preparing millennial Democrats to run for office in California, released a list of eleven endorsed millennial candidates (and one ally) for state and local office. The candidates, ranging in age from 23- to 38-years-old, are part of a diverse and unprecedented wave of young people inspired to run since the 2016 election. Tanner Kelly, co-founder and president of Generation Change, released the following statement:
"Faced with skyrocketing housing costs, staggering student loan debt, accelerating climate change, and declining wages, Californians need bold leaders with fresh ideas that will fight for them. The young people we are endorsing have a deep understanding of the challenges Californians face today and are the right choices to build a better future.”
“We know that strong leadership in state and local office is essential to furthering progress for California’s young people. Our endorsed candidates are stepping up to serve and be a voice for families and their communities -- Generation Change is proud to stand with them."
