Jaime Raul Zepeda Announces End Of Campaign For State Senate, Endorses Hayward City Council Member Aisha Wahab For The Seat

Zepeda’s People-Powered Campaign Enlisted Over 60,000 Supporters, Supported Exclusively by Over 700 Individual Donors from Across the Country

(Castro Valley) – Today, Jaime Raul Zepeda announced he was ending his people-powered, corporate PAC-free campaign to bring a voice to working class communities of State Senate District 10, on June 7, 2021. He ran as a Democrat.

“Unfortunately, the new district maps approved late last year have removed Castro Valley, the city that me and my family call home, from District 10. This means that I am no longer allowed to run for the open seat that will be available after Sen. Bob Wiekckowski finishes his current term,” Jaime Raul Zepeda said.

“I am proud to have run a campaign that was squarely focused on putting our people and our planet first. That is also why I am very excited to endorse Hayward Councilmember Aisha Wahab for State Senate District 10.

Councilmember Wahab is a fighter who cares about giving everyone a voice in Sacramento. She is focused on solving our biggest challenges around education, climate change, and building healthy and thriving communities. We need a real Democrat who will fight for working families as our next State Senator.”

Over the course of 6 months, Jaime was able to enlist over 60,000 supporters in-person and online. Over 700 of them became important contributors that fueled his corporate-free campaign. And he used his platform to promote policies focused on supporting the middle class, healing our planet, re-building our education system, lifting people out of poverty, and advocating for all working families.

Jaime’s vision is to rebuild better after COVID-19 by making education a top priority every year, launching a Marshall Plan for all working families, creating a transparent and responsive government, building a truly green economy, and erasing the obscene income inequality in our state. He knows Councilmember Wahab will carry that vision forward. Aisha Wahab is the best candidate in this race and will fight for the needs of our beautiful and diverse district.
