Tom Ammiano says:

"As I've said before It’s not about votes or vetos, it’s about building movements, and Gayle McLaughlin is indeed a movement-builder. She co-founded and led the Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) and the California Progressive Alliance (CPA), organizing and mobilizing for the transformation of Richmond and California. She successfully challenged Chevron's corporate control over Richmond, she protected immigrants against ICE and stood against the big banks in support of homeowners facing foreclosure, and she was a principal signer of Richmond's rent control law. She stands with all who suffer injustice and oppression including the unhoused, the LGBTQ community, and the BLM and police reform movement. Gayle is the person Richmond needs for these difficult days. She builds community and grows the movement for change. I endorse Gayle for Richmond City Council. Vote for Gayle! ~

Tom Ammiano, Past President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors from 1998 to 2002. Member of the California State Assembly from 2008 to 2014
