While the Latino Caucus in the Legislature continues to grow, the number of Latinas has not kept pace. Six progressive Latinas (Ducheny, Escutia, Figueroa, Ortiz, Romero, Soto) served in the State Senate in 2003.
In January 2015 there will be nada.
The Assembly must add to its 5 progressive Latina members and AD 48 is ripe for a Latina representative. Whose work do you admire on a city council or school board? Who led a civic effort and succeeded where others shied away?
