Early political career

Angelides' passion for politics was ignited in 1971, during his college freshman year, when he met anti-war activist Allard Lowenstein.[4] His work with Dukakis led him to serve as the chairman of the California Democratic Party from 1991 to 1993. His efforts not only helped Bill Clinton to become the first Democrat to carry California in 28 years, but also contributed to California becoming the first state to elect two female senators in the same election, Democrats Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein. His efforts have been beneficial for the California Democratic Party, because since 1992, California has consistently been a Democratic-leaning state in each subsequent Presidential election, and both Senate seats have remained Democratic. Allard Kenneth Lowenstein, (January 16, 1929–March 14, 1980) was a liberal Democratic politician, a one-term congressman representing the 5th District in Nassau County, New York from 1968 until 1970. ... 1991 (MCMXCI) was a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar and marked the Beginning of the International Decade to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination (1993-2003). ...

California State Treasurer

As Treasurer, Angelides is a trustee of the California Public Employees' Retirement System and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (the nation’s first and third largest public pension funds[5]). He has been a leader in the corporate reform movement[6] and has advocated for investment in socially and environmentally conscious businesses and for businesses with increased standards of financial disclosure.[7] [8] For example, on April 7, 2006 CalSTRS board members unanimously supported Angelides’ motion to divest from Sudan to pressure an end to the government backed Genocide in Sudan.[9] His Green Wave Initiative invested $950,000,000 into environmental businesses and technologies[10] and his Double Bottom Line Initiative invested 14 billion dollars into inner-city and underserved communities. [11] In 2003, the CalPERS investment committee approved of Angelides' Investment Protection Standards, which require that investment banking firms who do business with CalPERS separate their research and investment banking practices.[12] New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer complimented Angelides' plan saying, "I applaud Treasurer Angelides for his actions. Today’s announcement is an important first step in ensuring that these reforms become the new market standard." [13] Angelides, along with 10 other state treasurers and controllers, has also called on the SEC to approve a rule giving shareholders the right to nominate candidates for corporate boards of directors.[14] The California Public Employees Retirement System (CalPERS) provides pension fund and other retirement services for 1. ...

Gubernatorial campaign

In early 2005, he announced his intention to run against Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006, having made little secret of his ambition for the Governor's Office from the time that Schwarzenegger was elected in 2003. [15] On April 29, 2006, Angelides was endorsed by the California Democratic Party at the California State Democratic Convention in Sacramento. Despite this, polls from around that time showed that his opponent in the race, California State Controller Steve Westly, had an advantage in the primary. Angelides' campaign built momentum since the California State Democratic Convention, winning the endorsements of the Sacramento Bee [16] and the Los Angeles Times, [17] two of California's largest newspapers, and the California League of Conservation Voters [18], after a head-to-head debate with Westly. He also received the endorsement of the liberal San Francisco Bay Guardian. [19] A Field Poll held on June 2, 2006 had Westly leading Angelides by one percentage point, 35% to 34% with 26% undecided.

Angelides has also endorsed the Clean Money Initiative (Prop. 89).

Throughout the campaign, Westly and Angelides were both accused of engaging in negative campaigning. Angelides presented himself as a more progressive and liberal candidate, and accused Westly of working too closely with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, whom Angelides shall face in the November elections. Westly accused Angelides of being an anti-environment real estate developer. Westly's ads in that matter were later criticized by the executive directors of Vote the Coast, Sierra Club, California League of Conservation Voters, and California Coastal Protection Network in a letter saying "All of the environmental organizations who do endorsements believe Phil has the vision to be the greenest governor California has ever had. Don't let Steve Westly's attacks prevail over the environmental movement's best judgement in this election." Garry South, Westly's campaign manager, who also presided over Gray Davis' rather negative campaigns in 1998 and 2002, was also criticized over using such tactics, with the environmental groups chiding him for using "false accusations."

He’s right to say that and I’m here to tell you we all need to vote for the Democratic candidate, Phil Angelides for Governor in November 2006."[30] Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger[1] (IPA: ) (born on July 30, 1947) is an Austrian-born bodybuilder, actor and Republican politician, currently serving as the 38th Governor of California. ...

Quotes

  • For us to live in an oil-dependent society is to live in fear. The fear of terrorism funded with the very dollars we spend at the gas pump. The fear of war to defend or defeat oil-fueled regimes in the Mideast. The fear of what happens to our families and our jobs when, inevitably, oil prices soar out of sight. The fear of what is happening to our planet and the legacy we are leaving to our children and grandchildren.[37]
  • I believe President Bush is running deficits in Washington very deliberately. His plan is to finally run up so much debt that it inevitably creates pressure on the funding of things that count, in terms of the long-term strength of the society: educating kids, retirement security for American families. A mini version of that is going on in Sacramento.[38]
  • It takes more than empty soundbites to educate a child, more than scorched-earth rhetoric to balance a budget, more than celebrity swagger to care for the sick and the aged.[39]

  • In a 2000 episode of The Simpsons entitled "Pygmoelian," there is a character who takes Moe's picture for the Duff calendar, introduced by Duffman as "Duff's Vice President in charge of calendars and fake IDs, Phil Angelides." When asked about the episode, the real-life Angelides acknowledged Simpsons creator Matt Groening as "a friend" and said "By the way, that made me very popular among my three daughters. It raised my hip status among all my daughters and their friends." [40] [41]
  • According to seized Enron emails, during the California energy crisis, Jeff Dasovich, Enron's Director for State Government Affairs[42], called Angelides a "chowder head" and said that he was throwing a "tantrum" after Angelides wrote a letter to the president of the CPUC, urging the commission to end direct access for large business energy consumers.[43]

California Treasurer Phil Angelides on Wednesday won the state's Democratic primary to become the party's challenger to Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in November.
Angelides has been Schwarzenegger's harshest partisan critic in Sacramento since the Hollywood action star won office in the 2003 recall election of former Democratic Gov. Gray Davis.
Angelides, a liberal, had won early and eager support of unions at odds with the governor.
Phil Angelides - dKosopedia (651 words)
Angelides (pronounced "Ann-jel-EE-dees") is the California state treasurer, elected to that position in 1998.
Angelides called on the California State Legislature to pass AB 2584, which calls for an end to the loophole that allows corporations to escape taxes by relocating offshore.
Angelides says the push to privatize public pension funds is largely in response to the new trend of public pension funds calling for socially and environmentally responsible investments.
