      CA State Controller Betty Yee on the state of the CA Democratic Party

      Join the Democratic Women of Monterey County as State Controller Betty Yee reflects on the strengths and challenges of the California Democratic Party. The public is welcome to attend.

      A courageous fighter for the rights of the under-represented, Controller Betty Yee has spoken out and written on a host of progressive issues. She has advocated for oil refineries to pay their fair share of property taxes, for marriage equality, for increased construction of affordable housing, for immigrant rights, and for a higher minimum wage. She has been passionate about environmental stewardship in the face of global warming.

      Ms. Yee has been a lifelong Democratic activist with many campaigns under her belt. Quoting Bill Moyers at the 2014 Democratic Convention, she said, "The only answer to organized money, is organized people." Ms. Yee demonstrated this truth in her historic statewide grassroots campaign to become California's 32nd Controller.

      Controller Yee serves on 79 boards, commissions, and committees. She chairs the Franchise Tax Board, is the fifth voting member on the State Board of Equalization, serves in the State Lands Commission, and on the boards of the California Public Employees' Retirement System and the California State Teachers' Retirement System overseeing more than $500 billion. Ms. Yee is known for her record of fairness, transparency, integrity, and ability to resolve complex policy issues. Ms. Yee has received broad recognition for her work specializing in finance and tax policy and has represented California before the U.S. Congress on multistate tax issues.
