Carlsbad’s Democratic Delegate: Carla Mays

by The Editors on August 25, 2008

Carla MaysCarla Mays is representing the 50th Congressional District at the Democratic National Convention. And she is from Carlsbadistan. She is also blogging the convention for the San Diego Union-Tribune. Here is a small piece of her first report:

. . . As a Carlsbad resident, and young black professional woman, folks always try to link me with liberal Democratic politics. I like Barack as a progressive centrist, who believes in socially responsible business development, economic and community development that protects and stimulates small business and entrepreneurship (the real engine of our economy), affordable and quality health care and housing , and to protect social security and retirement investments. . . . Those of us in Generations X and Y are too often thought of as slackers and know-it-alls, but that could not be further from the truth. We are the most educated unemployed and/or underemployed generation.

Follow the link for the rest as well as ongoing coverage from Carla as the convention rolls on.
