Democrats endorse Buchanan

Fifteenth District Assembly candidate Joan Buchanan announced last week that she has received the sole endorsement of the California Democratic Party. The unanimous vote was taken at the state convention in San Jose on March 29.

"I look forward to working for better schools, an improved health care system, and the protection of our natural resources," said Buchanan.

The 15th Assembly District, currently represented by Republican Guy Houston, is one of the most competitive districts in California. It includes Alamo, Danville, Walnut Creek, San Ramon, Brentwood, Livermore and a part of Pleasanton, as well as portions of the Sacramento Delta communities of Stockton, Galt and Elk Grove.

Questions for Joan,

I support Joan Buchanan in all elections. In this Assembly election, the key issues will include Joan's interests in education, healthcare and the environment, but a greater issue is our economy. California is more a Pacific Rim country than one of the United States and we must expand our role in global economy as part of the global community and humanity.

I would like to hear Joan translate education into technology development and leadership, healthcare into technology opportunity, and our environment into market leading technology application of solar, wind, alternative fuels, and residential/commercial integration to reduce commuting. What support would Joan give to these overriding economic demands for the global role of all Californians.
