Milk club endorses Ammiano re-election bid

The Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club this week gave an early endorsement to openly gay state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco).

Ammiano is seeking a third and final term in the Assembly this November, and so far, he is running unopposed. He is expected to easily win re-election to his Assembly seat this November.

The progressive queer Democratic Club voted to give its backing to Ammiano at its membership meeting Tuesday, February 21.

The progressive state lawmaker (seen speaking in the photo at right) grabbed headlines last month when he took part in an event with religious leaders to call for reforms in how the state participates in the “Secure Communities” or S-Comm deportation program.

One of his signature bills this legislative session is AB 889, the California Domestic Workers Bill of Rights. It would provide more than 200,000 domestic workers in the state with overtime protections, inclusion in workers’ compensation coverage and the right to meal and rest breaks – protections already given to almost every other worker in California.
