Eric Stamps Receives National Recognition
Named a Bold Progressive Champion by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee
September 6th 2019 For Immediate Release — Eric Stamps, who is running for the Virginia House of Delegates, was named a 2019 Champion by the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which recognizes candidates from around the country who are fighting for progressive priorities and looking out for the needs of everyday families.
“Our 2019 Champions across the country are committed to solving big problems affecting their communities,” said Marissa Barrow, a spokesperson for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. “Selected for their bold vision, these candidates are highly capable leaders ready to make change.”
"The candidates on our Champions List are running great campaigns powered by the grassroots, not corporate interests," said Stephanie Taylor, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. "We're proud to support them as they take power back for their communities and turn big ideas into action for working families."
Eric said “Since day one I have been running an unapologetically progressive campaign. Raising the minimum wage, protecting workers rights, and fixing our broken healthcare and education systems have been resonating with voters all over District 14. People are tired of the “good old boys club” throwing money at wealthy corporations who never bring the jobs that they promise. People are tired of being told that everything is okay while so many continue to struggle. Years of broken promises have kept many voters on the sidelines, because they feel as if no one is speaking up for them. We don’t need anymore false promises and photo ops, we need solutions. Voters have to ask themselves if things are better for them now than they were 5, 10, or 15 years ago. If the answer is no, then it is time to go in a new direction.”
The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) is a million-member grassroots organization building power at the local, state, and federal levels, and advocating for economic populist priorities like expanding Social Security, debt-free college, Wall Street reform, and Medicare for All. The PCCC has raised over $29 million to support progressive candidates and committees from small-dollar, grassroots donations, including $1.1 million to support Elizabeth Warren’s Senate run in 2012. Last cycle, PCCC supported nearly 1200 candidates at the federal, state and local level across the country. Find out more at BoldProgressives.org.
