Eddie Ytuarte for Assembly, 16th District

Eddie Ytuarte

Eddie Ytuarte of Oakland is running for state Assembly in the 16th Assembly District, which includes most of Oakland, all of Alameda and Piedmont, and part of Emeryville. He has filed a statement of intention with the Secretary of State's Political Reform Division, so it is legal for him to accept donations to his campaign.

His statement for the June ballot pamphlet that went to all registered voters in the 16th District was:

I am Eddie Ytuarte, a first time candidate for public office. I want to talk about our country in ways the Republicans and Democrats donít. These two parties have prioritized government resources in ways detrimental to working class people. The war in Iraq is one example, with its huge costs in money, damage to that countryís institutions, people, and troops. Worse yet, the war endangers world peace by boosting terrorism and by increasing international contempt for the U.S. government.

We must fully fund California schools. The stateís businesses have saved enormous amounts of money by having public schools educate and train millions of their current and future workers at no cost to the employer. The state should tax businesses more heavily so that they pay more of their share of this employment preparation.

I support doubling the current minimum wage and will work with labor unions in fighting any unfair and coercive legislation.

I strongly oppose any further privatizing of public services, especially the running of schools by outfits like Edison.

I am opposed to the death penalty in all cases.

I will also work on behalf of stronger protections for tenants.

The disability community needs a champion in the legislature who brings a strong disability perspective and consciousness to Sacramento. I support expanding health care coverage for all Californians as one way to assist the disability community.

I am currently the Oakland Tenants Unionís coordinator and co-producer of a disability oriented show on KPFA radio.
