Candidates Endorsed at June 11, 2024 Meeting

Tuesday, June 11, 2024, members of Fresno Stonewall Democrats met to hear from local candidates and then voted by secret ballot to decide endorsements. Most of the candidates completed the club Questionnaire which seeks to inform members of the candidate’s positions on LGBTQ+ issues and includes a special section just for school board seats. Endorsements are won by a 60% vote of members present — Zoom attendees are allowed to vote using the anonymous polling feature.

Congratulations to these candidates who received the club’s endorsement:



  • State Center Community College District Trustee Area 2: Nasreen Johnson
  • State Center Community College District Trustee Area 3: Danielle Para
  • Fresno County Board of Education Area 3: Itzi Robles
  • Fresno Unified School Board Area 2: Elizabeth Jonasson-Rosas

Please refer to our Endorsements page for a full list that includes candidates previously endorsed for the March Primary. Candidate names are linked to their campaign websites if known.

Also refer to our Candidate-Information page for a list of all candidates who submitted the FSD Club Questionnaire. These forms provide insight into a campaign which you might not find on their website.

This month:

  • Candidates in attendance to discuss their campaigns
  • Endorsement Voting by members in good standing
  • Guest Speaker: Hugo Morrison on Voter Engagement

Please come out Tuesday night for our June meeting as we will have several candidates in attendance to announce or discuss their campaigns. They will each have 3 minutes and allowed up to 2 minutes for Q&A.

As announced at our May meeting and in email sent out that night, we will be voting on additional endorsements for the upcoming November Election. Candidates were invited to complete our club questionnaire which is always available to download from our website. We very much appreciate the time taken by candidates to answer our questions.

Please read through each questionnaire to familiarize yourself with the candidates seeking our endorsement:

Previously Completed Questionnaires:

Questionnaires help to inform our members of candidate’s positions on important LGBTQ+ issues. The questionnaire is not required for endorsement but it is obviously helpful in understanding the candidates. Please take the time to read the questionnaires that have been submited before considering your vote for endorsement on Tuesday.

Candidates invited (links to websites if known):

Guest Speaker: Hugo Morrison – Many of you know Hugo through Fresno’s Democratic Central Committee and other community projects. Hugo will speak to us about voter education and engagement. His insight and efforts in this area are important in understanding today’s voters and what November might be like.
