Education and public safety.

No matter what year it is, education and public safety are almost always the top two issues that citizens want our elected officials to work hardest on, along with jobs.

It makes sense, as they're the basis for creating -- and maintaining -- a growing economy.

And, this year, we have the chance to pass Proposition 47, which will make a seemingly small change to our criminal justice system that will pay big dividends for both public safety and our schools.

Click here to join the CDP in endorsing Proposition 47.

Prop 47 is a simple reform that will change sentencing for low-level, nonviolent crimes such as simple drug possession and petty theft from felony to misdemeanor punishments. It then directs the financial savings from reduced prison costs to K-12 schools, mental health treatment, and victim services.

That's why Prop 47 isn't just endorsed by the California Democratic Party, but also by prosecutors, police chiefs, district attorneys, and the education and labor communities.

We all know that this shift in our focus will help to protect public safety and focus our precious law enforcement resources where they're needed most -- on stopping violent and serious crimes. And at the same time, it will improve safety and economic opportunities by reducing the barriers that people with felony convictions face when seeking employment and housing.

That's a win-win for Californians -- and a smart investment in our future economic growth.

We're backing Prop 47. Are you with us?

Click here to endorse Proposition 47, too.

Thank you for standing up for smart sentencing and improved public safety.

Peace and friendship,
John Burton

Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Success of Endorsed Democratic Party Candidates in 2014 Primary Election

While votes are still being tallied, it’s important to note that in contests where the State Party’s delegates endorsed a candidate, those candidates performed exceedingly well. In fact, 96% of candidates endorsed by the California Democratic Party moved past the primary election and will be on the ballot in November – that’s an extraordinary success rate.

Our candidates' success speaks to the importance of the Democratic Party’s endorsement in the era of the “Top Two” Primary.

Below is a tally on the performance of endorsed candidates in the 2014 primary election:

Statewide candidates
Endorsed: 9 | Moving on: 9

Congressional candidates
Endorsed: 50 | Moving on: 49

State Senate candidates
Endorsed: 16 | Moving on: 15

State Assembly candidates
Endorsed: 63 | Moving on: 60

TOTAL Endorsed: 138
TOTAL Moving on: 133
