Press release from the Clinton/Gore Campaign Clinton Announces Top Latina Leader As Campaign Co-Chair SAN FRANCISCO, July 28 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Gov. Bill Clinton announced today the appointment of Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina as national campaign co-chair. Molina will be joining National Campaign Chairman Mickey Kantor and Co-chair Maxine Waters. "I'm grateful that Supervisor Molina has accepted the position," said Clinton before leaving California for Illinois. "Her experience and commitment to grassroots organizing brings added energy to this campaign." Molina will have a leadership role in the decision making process. As co-chair she will serve as a top advisor to the campaign. "I am very pleased to become part of the Clinton/Gore team," said Molina. "Americans are tired of a government that has failed them. Bill Clinton has a plan that will put people first by creating jobs, improving education and providing health care for every American. That's why people across the nation are responding to Clinton's call for change." Molina was elected to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in February of 1991. Previous to that she served in the L.A. City Council (1987-91) and the California State Assembly (1982-87). Through her public service Molina has built a reputation for her strength, independence and dedication to community empowerment. "I'm looking forward to assisting the campaign in formulating the strategy that will take Clinton's message to all Americans and get them to the polls in November," said Molina. As a top Latina leader in the nation, Molina will also be a voice for her community in the campaign. Elected in a predominantly Hispanic district in Los Angeles, Molina exemplifies the growing Latino voting power in the United States. "Molina's high level appointment demonstrates the campaign's commitment to reach out and be inclusive of everyone," said Kantor. -30- -- The opinions expressed are not necessarily those of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Campus Office for Information Technology, or the Experimental Bulletin Board Service. internet: or
