Hi RFK Democrats . . .

We Meet on Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Program - Josh Newman - The California State Senate

Josh Newman served in the California State Senate for the 29th District until June 2018.  At that time, he was recalled.  The 29th District includes 16 cities across Orange, Los Angeles, and San Bernardino counties.  Josh was originally elected in November of 2016, in what turned out to be the closest (and most expensive) legislative district in the entire state. 

Senator Newman won this election almost three weeks after election day, after counting all of the absentee and provisional votes.  It was a close election and gave Democrats a 23 vote Supermajority in the California State Senate.  He was also the first Democrat to represent this district in over four decades, making him an obvious target for Republicans.  When the California legislature raised California’s gas tax to make repairs to California’s transportation infrastructure, the Republicans filed a Recall petition.  It succeeded.

As Josh likes to put it, he may be out, but he’s not down.  He is now gearing up for the campaign to reclaim his seat in 2020.  Josh is a graduate of Yale University, an Army veteran, and the founder of a non-profit initiative to help young vets find career-oriented work upon completion of their service.
