Harris Campaign Press Release - North Tahoe Dems Chair Coralin Glerum, Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Leader Alan Mandell Endorse Kamala Harris
"She is a model of strength and grace...and backs down from no opponent or challenge"
In the wake of a dominating debate performance last week, Kamala Harris is being endorsed by North Tahoe Dems Chair Coralin Glerum and Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe Leader Alan Mandell. Glerum is a leading northern Nevada Democratic leader and has been outspoken on issues relating to the environment, immigration, and equality.
Under her leadership, the North Tahoe Democrats helped turn Washoe County blue in 2018. Alan Mandell is a longtime leader of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe in northern Nevada and former chairman of the Pyramid Lake Tribal Council. Mandell's endorsement comes on the heels of Harris participating via video in the National Congress of American Indians and rolling out her plan to lift up Native American communities.
"Kamala Harris inspires me with her bravery, compassion, intellect and determination," said Coralin Glerum, North Tahoe Dems Chair. "She is a model of strength and grace, is proud of her lifelong commitment to the Democratic Party, and backs down from no opponent or challenge. Her prosecutorial experience is vital to call out and combat the rampant corruption in our current era. I'm humbled to endorse her candidacy for president of the United States and will do everything in my power to assist her campaign as we rescue the presidency and our nation."
"I'm proud to endorse Senator Kamala Harris," said Alan Mandell, Native American leader from the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe. "Her record on Native issues and plan for Native communities speak volumes to her understanding and the kind of president she will be: a champion and fighter for the people."
As attorney general of California and U.S. Senator, she has stood side by side with Native communities and fought the climate crisis. In her campaign for president, she has released plans to honor tribal sovereignty and solve the climate crisis. As president, Harris will honor the United States' historic government-to-government relationship with Tribal Nations and invest in Native American communities to secure lasting prosperity. She will also ensure that those responsible for polluting our environment and spreading toxins in our air and water pay for the harm they have caused to public and environmental health.
