CAMTB 2024 March Primary Voter Guide

CAMTB 2024 March Primary Voter Guide

CAMTB is excited to share its 2024 California primary voter guide and election endorsements. In this year’s primary election, we are endorsing candidates for the state Assembly and local positions. We support these candidates for their particular stance on and commitment to outdoor recreation and environmental stewardship in California.

Why Primaries Matter

The big picture – primaries are how we decide which candidates will move on to the November election. All candidates for voter-nominated offices are listed on one ballot, and only the top two vote-getters in the primary election – regardless of party preference – move on to the general election. In districts with more than two candidates, voting in the primaries will help ensure that your preferred candidate makes it to the November ballot.

To learn more about our criteria for endorsement, read our Advocacy Pillars.


Alameda County

Alameda County Board of Supervisors District 5: John Bauters. CAMTB backs candidates who are strongly support bicycles, active transportation, and outdoor recreation. We proudly endorse Bauters’s campaign for Alameda County Supervisor – District 5. John is an Emeryville City Council member, where he gained a national reputation for his policies. He is affectionately known as “America’s Bicycle Mayor” for his very visible work advancing equitable access for cyclists. Read more in our endorsement statement.

Marin & Sonoma Counties

State Assembly (AD-12): Damon Connolly. We support Assembly Member Connolly for his second term. He has supported access to the outdoors, preservation of open space and improvements to our trails and bike paths for all users, adequate funding for California State Parks, and ensuring the Parks are partners with neighboring jurisdictions on wildfire prevention, forest health, and sea level rise adaptation.

Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties

State Assembly (AD-28): Gail Pellerin. Assembly Member Pellerin has a record of working on Addressing Environmental Impacts and Climate Change and is a supporter of funding for trails, State Parks, and improving the policies for better access.

Santa Barbara County

State Assembly (AD-37): Gregg Hart. Assembly Member Hart captured our attention in 2023 with the submission of Assembly Bill 1212, the Scenic Bikeways and Trails Act. While this bill did not advance to law, we were excited to see this kind of creative solution to improving bikeways and trails for all Californians. We look forward to more creative bills in 2024 by Asm. Hart.

Ventura County

State Assembly (AD-38): Steve Bennett. Assembly Member Bennett has a record as an environmental leader and a trail supporter. In this past session, he was the key player in getting increased funding and improved planning for natural surface trails.
