California’s leading consumer protection group joins a broad coalition uniting behind Mariko Yamada for State Senate

Today, Mariko Yamada’s campaign for State Senate District 3 announced a new endorsement from the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC).

CAOC is a statewide organization of nearly 3,000 attorneys that work to protect consumers by taking on larger corporate interests. CAOC’s announcement comes on the heels of the National Union of Healthcare Workers (NUHW) endorsement earlier this week.

Mariko Yamada said, “I appreciate the support of California’s consumer attorneys. Their work and advocacy is crucial in the fight for justice and corporate accountability.”

She continued, “I’ve dedicated my career to protect consumers, seniors and veterans by standing up to corporations, pharmaceutical companies and predatory lenders who take advantage of people and families who are the most vulnerable. Unlike my opponent who has taken a walk on key votes that would protect consumers, I will take a stand against polluters, big banks, insurance companies and automobile manufacturers. Californians need leaders who can’t be bought.”

CAOC adds its name to a broad coalition of supporters

that also includes California Nurses Association, California Federation of Teachers, California League of Conservation Voters, National Union of Healthcare Workers, EMILY’s List, California Women’s List, National Women’s Political Caucus of California, numerous local Democratic clubs and Democratic leaders like State Controller Betty Yee, California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, State Treasurer John Chiang, Congressman John Garamendi along with hundreds of elected officials and community leaders throughout California.

    I am thrilled to see this latest endorsement for Mariko Yamada.

    As a long time consumer activist, I understand that this large group of consumer attorneys is there to protect the interests of consumers…. and they are a fitting group to stand for Mariko.
