Hello! My name is James Daniel Bacon and I want to become your ADEM delegate.
I am 23 years old and a lifetime resident of San Clemente. I have not been, however, a lifetime Democrat. I have been won over by the rhetoric and more importantly the actions of those Democrats who have shown that there is deep injustice and inequity in our society and have taken actions to correct it.
I support policies which bring relief and empowerment to marginalized communities and working class people. Healthcare, protecting our environment, racial justice and protections for LGBTQ+ people are central issues for me. In addition, I believe corporate influence has no place in our politics, and as a former gig worker, stand for protections for gig workers in our state. As a beneficiary of an excellent public school education up to and including college, I believe in ensuring all Californians have access to the same excellent education.
Personally, I consider myself both an activist and a professional. I have been a rideshare and delivery driver, a volunteer for various organizations and campaigns, and am now a full-time professional and proud union member. You can reach out to me at JamesBaconforyou@gmail.com or at my social links below. I would love to hear from you personally both how I can win your support and how you can help me if you connect with my message and story.
