Cindy Chavez Wins Special Election; Run-off Slated for July 30th
Former City Councilwoman Cindy Chavez won handily against Water District spokeswoman Teresa Alvarado in the June 4th special election to replace District 2 County Supervisor George Shirakawa. Chavez, who received the SCCDP's sole endorsement, beat Alvarado by a full 10 points, 41% to 31%. (Check out this great page at the County Registrar of Voters to see complete results. Make sure to click on the map!)
Because neither candidate received more than 50% of the vote, the two will meet in a run-off July 30th. Our phone-banking and precinct-walking had a real impact in getting out the positive message about Cindy's commitment to the district and her record of accomplishment, especially in the face of a concerted barrage of negative attacks. But our hard work isn't over. Let's make sure that Santa Clara County gets a strong progressive voice. Let's make sure that Cindy wins again on July 30th.
