Los Angeles City Controller Laura Chick was named Friday as a co-chairwoman of California Women for Obama. “Barack Obama has the experience we need to take on the special interests and challenge the conventional thinking in Washington so that we can turn the page on the Bush-Cheney years,” Chick said. “Just like Barack Obama organized communities in Chicago that were shut out of the political process, we are organizing women across California who know we’ve got to take action ourselves if we want to change America.” – City News Service 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
