Steve Glazer: Being Independent Means Representing People Over Party
Democratic state Senator Steve Glazer spoke at the California Nonpartisan Primary Summit on Wednesday.
The event, hosted by the Independent Voter Project and California Forward, focused on the impact of California’s relatively new nonpartisan, top-two primary system.
Glazer shared his first-hand experience with nonpartisan primaries and how he managed to successfully endure negative attacks from his own party. He faced fellow Democrat Susan Bonilla in a special election to replace Mark DeSaulnier, who is now a member of Congress.
