They are responsible for creating, debating, and voting on legislation that addresses issues within their district. The California State Assembly has 80 districts.

Those elected in or after 2012 are allowed to serve 12 years total across both the state Senate or Assembly.

Of the registered voters in this district, 50% are Democrat and 15% are Republican, and the district’s demographic breakdown is 16% Latino, 54% Asian, and 4% Black.

    The Race


    Assm. Alex Lee is running for reelection to this seat, which he won in 2020. He is being challenged by a former assemblymember, Democrat Kansen Chu, a current at-large member of the Berryessa Union School District Board of School Trustees who held this seat from 2014 to 2020. Lee’s campaign has raised more than $450,000 and is not funded by corporate PAC, fossil fuel, police, or real estate money. While Chu received a Courage Score of 100 in 2021, Chu’s campaign is funded by police, corporate, and insurance money.

    In 2020, Chu abstained from voting on a measure that allows voters to decide whether the state’s ban on affirmative action should be repealed.

  • Endorsed By: Courage California
  • Elect Pamela Price to push Alameda in the right direction.

     

    The Position

    Each of the 58 counties in California elects a district attorney to manage the prosecution of criminal offenses related to the violation of state and county laws. The district attorney has investigative authority, manages the apprehension of individuals identified through the investigative process, and holds charging and prosecutorial power. The work of the district attorney includes Municipal and Superior Court operations, and serving as a legal liaison to the grand jury. The county Board of Supervisors provides financial oversight to the district attorney’s office, but holds no operational power over their work. District attorneys are elected to four-year terms in office.

     

    The District

    Alameda is California’s seventh most populous county, with a population of over 1,600,000. Alameda’s district attorney oversees an office of 150 deputy district attorneys, and the prosecution of criminal offenses across the county and unincorporated areas. Alameda County has a demographic breakdown of 22% Latino, 26% Asian, and 13% Black.

     

    The Race

    There are three candidates running for this seat, including Pamela Price, Chief Assistant District Attorney Terry Wiley, and Deputy District Attorney Jimmie Wilson. Incumbent Nancy O’Malley is retiring after 12 years as the Alameda DA. During the 2017 Alameda DA elections, O’Malley and 31 of her employees, including current challenger Terry Wiley, were alleged to have violated campaign ethics by using government email accounts to discuss campaign issues and seek donations to fund attacks against Price, who was challenging O’Malley. O’Malley’s office has not commented on the complaint. Price’s campaign has raised over $193,000, raised by more than 850 individual donors, and is not funded by corporate PAC, real estate, fossil fuel, or police money. Wiley’s campaign has raised $344,000, and received significant early donations from four former employees of the DA’s office. He has also received donations from real estate interests. Moreover, while Wiley has pledged not to accept donations from police associations and unions, he would accept endorsements. Price has said she would accept neither. Jimmie Wilson’s campaign raised more than $200,000 in 2021, and his biggest donor is a former CEO of credit card company VISA, while much of his other support comes from defense attorneys and current and former prosecutors.

     

    The Recommendation

    Pamela Price, a civil rights attorney, is a longtime resident of the Bay Area. According to campaign materials, Price is running for election to provide justice to the community, address ineffective and inequitable fines and fees related to criminal justice, and implement effective reentry programs for returning citizens, assisting in removing barriers to employment and education.

    Price is a survivor of the Ohio juvenile justice and foster-care systems who went on to graduate from Yale and UC Berkeley Law School. Price started her professional career as a criminal defense attorney in San Francisco. In 1991, she started her own firm in Oakland, and for 30 years represented victims of wrongful termination and sexual assault, as well as discrimination based on sex, age, religion, disability, and race. In 2016, Price was elected to the Alameda County Democratic Central Committee, and was reelected in 2020. She is a longtime supporter of gender and racial justice. As a community activist, Price co-founded the Bay Area Defense Committee for Battered Women and was appointed to serve on the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, which protects the rights of poor and immigrant communities. Price has received multiple congressional awards for her community service.

    Price is endorsed by many progressive groups and leaders in the district, including Dr. Angela Davis, Alameda Progressives, Our Revolution East Bay, and Progressive Democrats of America - Oakland Chapter. Based on our analysis, Price’s track record and policy positions demonstrate that she will be a progressive champion for the constituents of Alameda and will govern effectively in the best interest of this diverse district.
