J Street Politics

J Street PAC announces:

Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet is a progressive Democrat running for his first term in California's 45th Congressional District. Elected Mayor in 2007, Steve Pougnet is openly gay...[Steve Pougnet came to prominence in Palm Springs when he was elected to the City Council in 2003 along with Ginny Foat and then-Mayor Ron Oden. Their victory significantly changed the Palm Springs City Council from one of latent conservative leanings to one with a Gay-Lesbian-Bisexual-Transgender (GLBT) majority and a active GLBT agenda]

Mayor Pougnet is running as an outsider who can be a pragmatic leader that takes on decisive issues. He has stated that if elected he will look to J Street for guidance on issues relating to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the broader region. Pougnet supports the two state solution as the only path to lasting peace that will end the cycle of violence in the region. Mayor Pougnet supports a multilateral approach to Iran and believes that the international community must work together to be successful.

J Street is proud to endorse Mayor Steve Pougnet in 2010.
