My name is Barry A. Snell, and I am running for California Assembly District 51 delegate on the Progressive Slate. I pledge to advocate for policies that advance social, environmental and economic justice for all.
I am a Certified Public Accountant, small business owner and active community volunteer. I currently serve as the Chair of the Santa Monica College Board of Trustees, which I have been a member of for the past eight years. I served previously as a schoolboard member of the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District. My advocacy and support for public education as a way to address racial and economic inequities has always been a passion that drives me.
My effort on increasing State funding for Pre-K through 14 education, along with housing for community college students are policies that I support and will continue to advocate for. My goal is to continue to advance racial equity in our education system, by addressing the racialized trauma, microaggressions and triggers that continue to be unacknowledged by policy makers and institutions.
As a CPA and a board member for Downtown Santa Monica Inc. I have continued to work on policies to increase workforce and economic development. I am also a major renters’ rights advocate and will continue to work on affordable housing policies at the local and state level.
In my last three terms as a delegate to the California Democratic Party, I have worked with delegates across the state to craft and adopt a platform approved by all delegates. I also serve as a Trustee on the Community College League of California working with other Trustees statewide developing best practices for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for all students.
As a delegate, I will use my expertise to advocate for economic opportunity for all, workers’ rights, racial justice, the Green New Deal and more progressive policies. I ask that you vote for me, Barry A. Snell and the Progressive Slate for AD 51.
