2021 ENDORSEMENTS

PALAD issues endorsements in local, municipal, statewide, and national elections. Consequently, PALAD takes positions on statewide and local ballot measures and may also endorse in nonpartisan elections such as judicial office elections.

 

Per our Bylaws last amended on January 23, 2020, PALAD may not endorse candidates or ballot measures in contradiction to those endorsed by the State or County Democratic Party, however, non-endorsed candidates or ballot measures seeking our support may ask for our “no endorsement” vote. If CADEM and/or LACDP has not made an endorsement in a race or ballot measure then PALAD can make an endorsement. The Endorsements Committee shall be composed of members of the Board. 

 

Only candidates endorsed by PALAD may be eligible to receive campaign contributions from PALAD. If you have any questions, please email the PALAD Board at hello@palad.org
