Derek's Endorsements

We can’t build a better future for California’s 23rd without the support of the community. That’s why Derek is proud to be endorsed by these community leaders and organizations!

Derek Marshall has proven himself to be a progressive champion for California’s Inland Empire and I’m happy to endorse his campaign. The hard working families of CA- 23 deserve a representative that’s dedicated to bringing good-paying jobs, healthcare and education for all, and much needed infrastructure and affordable housing home to the district. From day one of his campaign, Derek has been fighting for the interests of his community — not the corporate or special interests and that’s exactly the type of leadership we need to see more of in Washington.

As a community organizer and advocate, Derek Marshall is a proven fighter for California's new 23rd District. Derek's vision for the Inland Empire is focused on addressing the needs of the hard working people of CA-23, not the bottom line for big corporations. Derek is focused on bringing good-paying jobs, infrastructure, and desperately needed affordable housing to his community. We need more champions for working families like Derek in Washington and I'm happy to endorse his campaign.

Congressman Ted Lieu

"I’m proud to endorse Derek Marshall for Congress. Derek is a progressive community leader who is focused on helping California's working families get ahead. I urge every Californian in CA-23 who wants better-paying jobs, more affordable housing, and health care for all to support Derek Marshall for Congress."

Senator Alex Padilla

“Now more than ever, we need leaders in Washington who will fight for California's families. I believe Derek Marshall will deliver for our hard-working families who are in desperate need of better-paying jobs and more affordable housing. The Inland Empire can trust Derek Marshall."

Assembly Majority Leader Eloise Reyes

“I’m happy to endorse Derek Marshall for Congress because the families of the Inland Empire deserve a representative in Congress who is focused on bringing jobs and resources to our neighboring communities. Currently, CA-23 is represented by a man who has voted against price gouging protections at the fuel pump and a bill to help end the baby formula shortage all while catering to corporate donors – the 23rd district deserves more. Whether it’s his support for popular policies like healthcare for all or a Green Jobs guarantee, Derek’s Marshall’s progressive vision is solely focused on the needs of working people. It's time to send Derek to Congress to give the people of CA-23 a champion.”
