The Japanese American Democratic Club is recognized by top local Democratic leaders as the official voice of Nisei Democrats in Los Angeles ... Congressman James Roosevelt has expressed delight in discovering that the Nisei has begun to take an active part in politics by the formation of the JADC ... The JADC was officially represented by six delegates at the State Democratic convention held in February at Fresno ... State Senator Richard Richards has taken part in our meetings as have State Assemblymen Ed Elliott, Bill Munnell & Jesse Unruh ...
