Press Release: BCA Endorsement Meeting Results

From Linda Godzi
Sunday September 16, 2012 - 10:16:00 PM

The following candidates have received the endorsement of Berkeley Citizens Action for the November 2012 election, selected Sunday September 16 at our candidate endorsement meeting. Candidates who were endorsed got at least 60% of the vote. If that threshold was not met, BCA makes no endorsement. 

Several people have asked that we publicize 2nd and 3rd choices. As the BCA rules did not envision this process, this matter needs to be take up at by the Steering Committee, which meets this Thursday at 7 pm. The spreadsheet and the actual ballots will be available for viewing at that time and will be retained until after the election is over. 

The BCA Measures and Propositions Endorsement Meeting will be held at the North Berkeley Senior Center on Sunday Sept 30 from 1:30-5
