Lois Carson Endorses Danny Tillman for U. S. Congress

Lois Carson Former San Bernardino Valley College Trustee Endorses Danny Tillman for Congress


Published: Saturday, March 1, 2014 4:43 PM PST
Ms. Lois Carson
It takes courage and a history of independence  to run for elective office, especially if you are African American because you must work so much harder and stand up to the detractors whose first words are “you cannot win”. I know; I have been there.


I am sure Danny Tillman went through the discernment required to make such a decision long before declaring his intention; he did not come to the decision lightly or quickly. So, nothing can stop him now—not organized party power, not “doubting Thomas'” nor those seeking favours from the eventual winner.


I first met Danny as a teenage student at Valley College and I was a member of the Board of Trustees; he was already exhibiting  attributes of a leader then and now at age 50, he is a proven leader as demonstrated by his front-runner and top vote getter school board elections and very effective Board governance. His business and technical acumen led to his successful investigation of the district finances where he found 40 million dollars in school funding in his first year as a school board member. Much of the responses to meet the needs of a changed community can be attributed to Danny who spends a great amount of time in the community. He is now ready to serve at the national level.


One of his major priorities is children, those in the district and those outside the district. He currently serves as president of the non-profit Black Future Leaders, Inc (BFL) which promotes high achievement for high school youth across the Inland Empire; the students participate for four years as long as they maintain a 3.0 GPA and perform 50 hours of community service per academic year. They are offered a summer residence program at Cal State every year. With a goal of academic excellence and community service, BFL is now in its 28th year. He cares about people, especially the young.


Danny was not recruited by the establishment but saw a need as Bobby Kennedy once said, and  “sought to fill it”. While Danny clearly understands and values the concept of compromise so necessary in politics, he will never capitulate because he thinks for himself. He is an open book, candid and honest. What you see with Danny Tillman is what you get. More than that he is prepared to serve at any level of government and he has chosen the Congress. I support his choice and hope the readers will too. 


Lois J. Carson


"Of course I am so honoured to have such an esteemed and ranking member of the Inland Empire endorse me for U. S. Congress, words can never express my gratitude. I will continue to work hard for the Inland Empire when I am in Congress."

Working Together with California Teacher's Association


I recall my first serious interaction with the Teachers Association was when two members of my church had been unjustly fired as teachers after working for San Bernardino City Unified School District for over 20 years. They had been relieved of their duties which included their retirement and all other benefits.

I walked door to door inquiring about these teachers with parents and students, there were no negative reports against these teachers. Together, I and other community members addressed the Board and the teachers were reinstated with full benefits and tenure.

It was at that time the Teachers Association asked me to run for office, I agreed. I have been endorsed and supported by the teachers association for the past five times I have been elected. I won my first election as the top vote getter and in my first year I found 40 million dollars. Those needed funds allowed the District to build its first High School on the Westside of San Bernardino and every teacher received a stipend that year. We have built more than 17 new schools since I was first elected which produced thousands of jobs for San Bernardino and its surrounding areas.

Since my 19 years as a school board member there have been no impasses, that can only be attributed to being a fair board member who is trusted by both classified and unclassified employees. My board colleagues have entrusted me with the leadership of being the President and Vice President for multiple terms each. As your elected Congressional Representative I will work honestly and fairly with my Congressional colleagues to ensure that our Country and District receives the benefits and funds due to them.

Since I have been on the board we have had a balanced budget, which is close to a half billion dollars. I refuse to allow our students, parents, teachers and taxpayers to be robbed of the funds that are owed to them. Under my leadership the district has not fallen prey to entities overpriced products and services. The State and Federal Government has millions of dollars designated for education. I always do my due diligence to ensure our district gets that money. I will do the same as your Congressman. I will be aggressive in finding those Federal dollars available to our community for jobs, education, healthcare and safety.

I am most proud of my collaboration with California Teachers Association because together we have worked successfully in San Bernardino and I will take that same unity and hard work to Washington D C to do even more.

Raising the Minimum Wage


President Obama just signed an Executive Order to raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10. He had to use the Executive Order because House Republicans would not vote to raise the minimum wage for all hardworking Americans.

When I am  elected to Congress I will make it a priority to fight for working Americans and raise the minimum wage to ensure a higher standard of living.


California, as one of the most progressive states in the Union, has raised the minimum wage to $9.00 an hour effective January 1, 2014 and $10.00 an hour effective January 1, 2016.

I will not stop there, I will continue to work with our Unions to ensure the middle class catches up to the economy's cost of living.

I will fight to increase the minimum wage to a true living wage.


But I cannot do it without your help. I need your support; so pledge to volunteer for my campaign, to donate to the campaign and to VOTE Danny Tillman for Congress District 31 June 3, 2014.

31st: Is this Rep. Gary Miller's Idea of Border Security



Whenever Gary Miller gets protestors at his office to push for immigration reform he trots out his Chief of Staff Chris Marsh to reiterate the same Conservative talking points about border security first, immigration reform second, and a path to citizenship never.

However, I just recently found out about the Detention Bed Mandate operated by the privately owned prison in Adelanto from local news reports. The detention bed mandate requires a quota of 34,000 undocumented immigrants be kept awaiting deportation AT ALL TIMES. I first heard about it on NPR and was shocked that this is happening in the Inland Empire.

The cost to taxpayers is about $2 Billion dollars a year.

Make no mistake this is what Rep. Gary Miller is talking about when he talks about border security.

California Report: Solar Projects and Its Impacts in the Inland Empire

My apartment complex where solar panels have been installed.




I'm still an advocate of solar projects the energy savings and jobs they will bring. I just never considered its impacts on rural or desert communities. Local energy should stay local and/or if sold some of the proceeds should go to residents who are impacted by these projects. We should do all we can to reduce environmental impact while expanding our energy resources.

Long-shot Congressional Candidate Danny Tillman Unfazed by Long Odds - Danny Tillman won't be discouraged by snub from Democrats

Tillman bucks party establishment in bid for California’s 31st District

41st CD: Thank You, Mark Takano for Progressive Leadership in the Inland Empire



I think Rep. Takano broke the mold when he was first elected in 2014. He was the first (openly) Progressive candidate to get elected in the Inland Empire. I have to admit I was a bit envious because I was hoping that it would have happened in San Bernardino County first. I think since his election we have seen more Progressive stances on issues coming from the Inland Empire and really challenging the Conservative narrative that permeates the policy making in this region.

In addition, his leadership has really put the Inland Empire on the map and makes him a thought leader on Progressive issues. Whether it be gay marriage, immigration reform, defending Social Security he has been on the forefront of these fights to ensure that the silent majority is heard.

Here is an oldie but goodie on immigration reform:
