State Assemblyman Bill Dodd today reported receiving endorsements from Progressive Women of Napa Valley, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA), and the Faculty Association of California Community Colleges (FACCC) in his race for state Senate, District 3.
Progressive Women of Napa Valley is the latest Democratic group to endorse Dodd who has been a champion of women’s issues including authoring several measures to close the gender pay gap and ensure that women are paid equally as compared to their male counterparts for the same work.
