Former Democratic Party Regional Director Endorses Jordan for Assembly

Sue Broidy expresses admiration for the candidate's 'activism, intelligence, integrity and clarity of vision'

Former Democratic Party Regional Director Sue Broidy has endorsed Susan Jordan for Assembly District 35.

“It is with firm conviction that I endorse the candidacy of Susan Jordan for the 35th Assembly District. I felt strongly that I was not in a position to endorse either candidate in the race while I was still Region 10 director, as my role was to support, encourage and provide resources for all Democratic candidates,” said Broidy, who recently stepped down from the position because of an impending move to another state.

“The situation has now changed and I am free to endorse Susan. I support women in public office as I believe they bring a different intelligence to public life which is urgently needed in Sacramento. Second, I admire Susan’s history of activism, her intelligence, integrity and clarity of vision.

“Susan Jordan also has my endorsement for her grace under fire and her firm adherence to her principles on the environment, health care and education.”

Region 10 includes Assembly Districts 33, 35, 37 and 41.

Broidy is also the co-founder of the Democratic voter registration group Vote Blue, and was an aide to former Assemblywoman Hannah-Beth Jackson.

Jordan expressed her admiration for Broidy’s many contributions to Democratic goals.

“Sue’s steady leadership and wisdom has been invaluable,” Jordan said. “She has been a true friend, and her presence will be missed by everyone in the party.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
