2010 Local General Election
The night of November 2nd proved to be exciting for some, disappointing for others, and inconclusive for a few. For MEA-endorsed City Council candidate,David Alvarez, the early election results left him cautiously optimistic, which then turned to elation as each electoral update put him further and further ahead. By the time all of the District 8 precincts were counted, David had garnered more than 58% of the vote.
MEA is proud to have supported and endorsed David prior to even the primary election. His intellect, passion and commitment set him apart from the very start, and we are looking forward to working collaboratively with David to find meaningful and long term City solutions.
We would also like to congratulate MEA-endorsed candidates Toni Atkins and Ben Hueso, who were both successful in their bids for State Assembly. We wish them the best and know that they will both represent the region with the utmost commitment and enthusiasm.
Lastly, MEA would like to acknowledge all of the members and staff who donated their time to volunteer on our candidates’ campaigns. A great deal of the candidates’ success was a direct result of the calls you made, the precincts you walked and the time you spent talking to your friends, neighbors and co-workers about the importance of this election. We greatly appreciate your time and efforts to help get dedicated, qualified and intelligent candidates elected.
