Candidate for
California State Assembly District 18
Campaign website
Joel Young was a 2012 Democratic candidate for District 18 of the California State Assembly.


Campaign themes


Young's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Bring jobs here to our community
Excerpt: "I’m going to make sure that state agencies are buying goods and services from California businesses. The $7.2 billion dollar Bay bridge span was built overseas by thousands of workers."
  • Bring high tech start-ups to the East Bay
Excerpt: "Other Bay area cities are outpacing Oakland, Alameda, and San Leandro in creating green and information technology jobs. We have the potential to attract high tech firms. We have a workforce that is ready to lead the way."
  • Bring early childhood education to every child in our community
Excerpt: "We know that young men of color start to fall behind at an early age, and that as each year goes by it becomes harder and more expensive to intervene, right up to the point that they land in prison. We know that every dollar we invest in early childhood education saves almost three dollars in prison spending down the road. We know that, and yet we’ve failed to act. "
