Candidates for Alameda County Supervisor District 3
San Leandro, Alameda, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Hillcrest Knolls and the Fruitvale, San Antonio and Chinatown communities of Oakland
I have advocated on behalf of California's children, their families and the elderly for over 40 years. During my 12 years as former Alameda County Supervisor District 3 and Assemblywoman, I focused legislative attention on issues that matter to everyone - healthcare, education, affordable housing, living-wage jobs, senior services, environmental health and economic development. I run again for the office of Alameda County Supervisor District 3.
In the Assembly, I authored and passed more than 55 bills into law, including increasing access to pre-school opportunities and a $100M budget allocation; stopping hospitals from gouging uninsured families; banning hazardous chemicals from sofas, mattresses and other household goods; expanded health insurance to 800,000 uninsured children; extended Industrial Development Bonds to help local businesses.
As an Alameda County Supervisor, I forged broad partnerships and led many initiatives, including converting Alameda Hospital to a health district to keep it operational; creating a community collaborative for youth and their families in San Leandro and Alameda; securing funding for constructing Alameda Library and for County childcare programs; leading Alameda County's effort on Prop.10 which brought $16M annually for child healthcare; helping merge San Leandro firefighters with the County firefighters; conducting Oakland workshops to promote local business contracting opportunities

I am the ideal candidate for the Alameda County Board of Supervisors District 3.
After 12 years on the Alameda City Council - eight as Mayor - I am the best-prepared candidate to tackle the complex issues confronting our County.
My endorsements include Senator Loni Hancock, Assemblyman Sandre Swanson and former state Senate President Don Perata.
I have real experience in economic development and job creation. During my tenure in Alameda, I have overseen a range of important projects including the development of a new main library and the restoration of a 1930s-era movie theater. I have also directed the renovation of Alameda's major shopping districts and helped recruit Peet's Coffee and Donsuemor Cookies to the city.
If elected, I shall - fight to save San Leandro Hospital and find a sustainable county-wide solution for our ailing healthcare system; promote short- and long-term county policies to spark job creation and economic development; support the full funding of county services for our seniors and at-risk youth; fight to reduce Alameda County's carbon footprint and its impact on global warming and climate change.
Please consider casting your vote for Bev Johnson on June 8. Thanks!

As an elected official, I shall support and oppose legislation on the California economy and any other issues requiring legislative enactment. Before supporting any legislation proposed by any platform, I shall examine cost.
Both federal and state governments have failed to enact or mandate any forum of equality within their tax-revenue distribution systems. The disastrous consequences are evident with taxpayers subsidizing taxpayers.
History dictates that tax-producing taxpayers cannot continually subsidize non-tax producing taxpayers, especially when government increases taxes mostly for the benefit of non-tax producing taxpayers.
Elections, voters, candidates and/or campaigning rights go hand in hand with constitutional rights, such as supporting or opposing whatever might be the voters' selection other than any endorsement and, most likely, endorsing is in violation of political free speech.
Lou Filipovich, as a candidate for public office, welcomes support and respectfully declines endorsements.
