Charlotte "Char" Bland

Executive/Community Leader

As a wife, mother, grandmother, and community leader, I know how much families across Assembly District 41 and the nation are hurting in response to COVID-19. I’m a proud lifelong Democrat who is dedicated to making change in our community.


Throughout my life, I have been a passionate volunteer for various Democratic causes and community efforts, including:
-Chair of the Pasadena Commission on the Status of Women
-Board Member of the Los Angeles City College Foundation
-Board Member of Peace Over Violence
-President of the Eaton Canyon Homes Homeowners Association
-President of Los Angeles CARES Mentoring Movement
-Chair of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion workgroup 3 of California Community Colleges

Earlier this year, I decided to take my passion for social and environmental justice to city hall when I ran for Pasadena City Council, where my family and I have called home for over 20 years. Because of my record as a leader with progressive values who takes action to deliver results for our neighborhoods, I earned the endorsements of then-U.S. Senator and current Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, ACT and the Arroyo Democratic Club, Democrats of Pasadena Foothills, National Women’s Political Caucus of the Greater Pasadena Area and San Gabriel Valley, as well as labor unions.


While my campaign for city council was not ultimately successful, I am so grateful I had the opportunity to run a Democratic-backed campaign with a platform of healthier families and healthier communities, because that’s what I stood for then and it’s what I stand for now. Now more than ever, our party needs bold leadership that will take a stand to fight for human rights, racial justice, social justice and environmental justice, and I am committed to being part of that leadership. I humbly request your vote for AD 41 delegate, and I hope you will support all 14 candidates so that we may truly have a party that will work for Justice for All.
