California Donor Table and Voices for Progress Support Johnathon Ervin to Flip AD36!

We need more progressive Democratic state legislators to pass legislation in Sacramento to protect our climate and democracy while ensuring social and economic justice, and who reflect California's racial diversity. That’s why California Donor Table and Voices for Progress are supporting Johnathon Ervin in the 2020 primary election for State Assembly District 36. 


Ervin is a Black aerospace engineer, veteran, and reservist for the United States Air Force who previously served as a planning commissioner for the city of Lancaster and school board member of the Muroc Joint Unified School District. He champions environmental justice, expanded access to healthcare, criminal justice reform, and educational equity. As the leader of the local Democratic Party, he has also worked to elect women into office in the region, including U.S. Representative Katie Hill in 2018. Ervin is also endorsed by State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon.


California Donor Table and Voices for Progress previously endorsed Ervin when he challenged Republican incumbent Scott Wilk in State Senate District 21 in 2016 and came within 6% of defeating Wilk. He won the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster—the most significant part of AD36—by large margins. For this 2020 effort to flip a red district, he faces Republican incumbent Tom Lackey and two other Democrats, one of whom is a former Republican and assemblymember who engaged in workplace sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. Your early contributions will help Ervin triumph in the primary and flip this “Toss-Up” district. 


Please join us in supporting Johnathon Ervin! We hope you will give to his campaign at a level that is significant for you. $4,700 is the maximum allowable contribution per person for the primary.
