856’s Public Policy Coordinator Elected as Delegate


Malia Vella with Assemblymember Rob Bonta

Congratulations to Teamsters 856 Public Policy Coordinator Malia Vella who was re-elected as a delegate for Assembly District 18 (Alameda, Oakland, and San Leandro) on Saturday.

Vella is part of Assemblymember Rob Bonta’s labor-friendly slate who will attend the California Democratic Party Conventions this year and in 2016. Pro-working family candidates were also elected as district delegates in San Francisco, and Assembly District 17 (which includes parts of Alameda and Contra Costa Counties).

“With these victories labor will have a bigger coalition and a stronger voice in who the California Democratic Party endorses and what issues are prioritized,” said Vella.
