Fighting Progressive fights for Inclusiveness & Diversity:

Ellen Corbett was a Senator leading the house when Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 154 (Gray) was introduced and passed by the California legislature. Under her leadership at that time, the bill sailed through the Senate also. Relative to pupil instruction and filed with Secretary of State August 21, 2014, this measure would acknowledge and applaud the Modesto City Schools’ initiative and achievement in teaching the unique World Geography-World Religions class as a grade 9, which also include Sikh religion. This was a required course successfully taught for the last 15 years in the Modesto City School District only, and would recommend that the class be considered for adoption by other school districts throughout the California state. This was considered helpful while the curriculum is being updated in the 2017 text books.

Now changing hats Ellen Corbett has been elected for East Bay Regional Parks Board. Under the new regime taking charge after the Presidential Election, this is going to be a very challenging position indeed.

Knowing her strength, we expect her to use her passion and valuable legislative experience to protect, preserve and enhance our environment we and our children live in. I congratulate and wish her all the very best in her new position. I am delighted to share her email after her win:

Dear Pashaura,

I want to thank all of you for your encouragement, generosity and support during the last few months of my campaign for East Bay Regional Parks Board. Because of your help, we won! I look forward to bringing my lifetime of legislative experience and environmental advocacy to our park system. When I entered this race, I vowed to protect and preserve our precious open space and parklands. In light of the results of the Presidential Election, we need progressives at every level of government to defend our values more than ever. While we achieved our goals and ran a very successful campaign, we have many challenges ahead. I am grateful that because of your support I will be able to continue to represent you as a steward of our environment. I cannot thank you enough. We did it!
Sincerely,
Ellen Corbett
