OUR VERY SPECIAL SPEAKER IN OCTOBER
BETTY YEE, California’s Controller
“California’s Fight to Save Our Way of Life”
Every day it seems there is a new attack from Washington DC aimed directly and deliberately on the values we Californians hold dear – equal rights for all citizens, clean air and clean water, treating all immigrants - both legal and illegal – fairly and humanely, adequate health care for all people, managing public lands for the benefit of the public, fair treatment under federal tax laws. The list is endless and seems to grow daily. We are counting on our California elected officials to push back and fight for us. Betty is part of that fight and we love her for that.
We are proud to have endorsed Betty in her run for Controller in 2014 and again this year. We know Betty to be open, bright, honest and charismatic. Betty is a native of San Francisco, born to immigrant parents who ran a laundry and dry-cleaning business. Betty worked there when not in school, dealing with customers, translating for her parents and helping with their finances. Those early lessons that helped her in her current job of running California’s finances.

Betty graduated from UC Berkeley and has spent 30 years in public service in local and state finance and as a fighter for women’s and civil rights. We hope she will continue in public office fighting for the people of California – and the nation - for many more years.
Don’t miss our good friend in Sacramento, Betty Yee.
