North Coast Young Democrats Endorse Stacey Lawson for Congress
(San Rafael, CA) — Educator and small business owner Stacey Lawson announced the endorsement of the North Coast Young Democrats today.
“Stacey Lawson was the only candidate to really address the issues we support in our policy platform. Our members are energized by a progressive Democrat who has a message that really speaks to young people,” said Patrick Sullivan, Campaign Director for the North Coast Young Democrats.
North Coast Young Democrats is affiliated with California Young Democrats and Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee. Its mission is to develop, support and sustain a network of local young Democrats in their efforts to raise the awareness of pressing issues and help mold the future of the Democratic Party.
“I look forward to working with the North Coast Young Democrats to rebuild America’s middle class so that their families and every family in America can benefit from the opportunities that mine did,” said Lawson. “I am honored by their support.”
Lawson, the only candidate in the race with real-world experience creating jobs and helping small businesses grow, has published a detailed plan to create middle-class jobs – Making More in America: How Restoring America’s Manufacturing Strength Can Help Rebuild America’s Middle Class. The plan is available at www.StaceyLawson.com, iTunes and Amazon.com.
Lawson grew up in a rural, coastal community in Washington State and moved to northern California after college. She watched her father start a small trucking business from a single truck he drove himself and lift their family into the middle class. A student of public schools who became a chemical engineer and then went on to graduate from Harvard Business School, Lawson has started small businesses, run major departments inside large companies and created hundreds of jobs.
Lawson co-founded and teaches at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology at UC Berkeley, and started a company that created technology to help U.S. manufacturers compete in the global marketplace — and keep middle-class jobs in America.
