California Assembly District 12 Candidates Forum

Help Decide Who Represents Oakmont in Sacramento

Redistricting has put Oakmont in a new State Assembly District with a hot race for an open seat.   On September 12th at 6:30 p.m. in the East Rec Center, the Oakmont Democratic and Progressives Clubs will jointly host a Forum for the California State Assembly District 12 candidates. Both final candidates, Sara Aminzadeh (D) and Damon Connolly (D), will attend.  The Forum will be hybrid and all Oakmonters are welcome.

Climate change, Women’s Rights, Education, Guns, Taxes, Senior Health Services are among the key issues the next State Assembly will address. In a four-person primary race, Marin County Supervisor Connolly won over California Coastal Commissioner Aminzadeh by about 1,000 votes.  Both have a boatload of endorsements, and the November election should be a nail-biter.  The September 12th Forum begins at 7:00 p.m. and will be preceded by a Social at 6:30 p.m.  A zoom link and more information will also be available on either the Progressives’ website ( or the Oakmont Democrats’ website (  Meet the candidates and decide who you think will best represent our community.
