Rancho Palos Verdes, CA – Today, at a rally near Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, which falls in the 66th Assembly District, Al Muratsuchi, Candidate for Assembly in the 66th District, Congressman Ted Lieu, Eric Bauman, the Los Angeles County Democratic chairman, teachers and activists, all called on Assemblyman David Hadley to take a stand against Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump. Hadley recently chose to repeat his pattern of indecision and lack of leadership by announcing that he won’t vote in the Presidential election. The speakers also pointed out the shared values between Donald Trump and David Hadley, as outlined on hadleytrump.com.
The event was broadcast on Facebook live, which can still be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/almuratsuchi/videos/1078194358916781/

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In a pattern that has become his signature move in Sacramento, Republican Assemblyman David Hadley has once again shown how afraid he is to take real stand.. In this case, his indecision in the Presidential race is really just a mask hiding the truth: that he actually politically agrees with much of what Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump stands for. As the website www.Hadleytrump.com shows, their shared values includes positions that are clearly too extreme for the South Bay, including Hadley’s 17 percent rating from Planned Parenthood, his opposition to clear air regulations and support of fracking.
With a historic presidential election rapidly approaching, it is time to take a real stand for the South Bay and our country.
Our next president of the United States is going to be either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, with all due respect to third-party candidates. The choice between Clinton and Trump could not be more clear. The stakes could not be higher — for our children, our families, and our nation.
This is no time to stay on the sidelines of this historic election with your finger in the wind. We cannot afford to sit this one out or cast a protest vote. This election is too important.
Assemblymember David Hadley’s decision to not vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in this historic election is not just any regular, average non-decision that he tends to make in his life as a representative of the South Bay. No, this one is much, much bigger.
Because this time, his non-decision could help put Donald Trump into the Oval Office.
Yes, that Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. Yes, the one who just called President Obama and Hillary Clinton “the founders of ISIS” and implied in a speech that gun owners should shoot Secretary Hillary Clinton or the judges that she nominates as President. Yes, the same Donald Trump who, since he announced his candidacy, has called for punishment for women who seek abortions, called Mexicans “rapists,” made fun of a disabled reporter and said he wants to ban Muslims from the country.
Buckles under pressure and then decides to not take a stand at all
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Assemblymember David Hadley has decided again to duck and run when it comes to decisions that matter to the people of the South Bay. In a pattern that has become his signature move in Sacramento, Hadley sidesteps an issue by taking no stand at all and then pretends like he has actually taken a stand. In this case, he announced, in an Op-ed, that he would make a non-decision in the Presidential race by voting for neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, his Republican party’s nominee.

The California Fair Political Practices Commission confirmed it is investigating allegations that Assemblyman David Hadley illegally coordinated with an independent expenditure committee supporting him.
“ExxonMobil’s repeated violation of air pollution standards is unacceptable. Children and working families in Torrance and the South Bay are being repeatedly exposed to emissions exceeding AQMD standards. Clearly the fines appear to have been inadequate as a deterrent. AQMD needs to crack down more effectively on air pollution violations and do a better job of monitoring and sharing information on the air that we are breathing.”

Candidate for the 66th District Assembly, Al Muratsuchi, came out on top in the June 7 primary, but turnout, as in the 2014 race, will decide whether or not he takes the seat back from incumbent Assemblyman David Hadley in November.
Muratsuchi won the primary by 4 percentage points—4,540 votes—by carrying Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Gardena and West Carson by healthy margins of 5 percent. He won Lomita and Torrance by 2 and 3 percentage points respectively. Muratsuchi lost Manhattan Beach by a slim margin. He lost the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Hadley by wide margins.

One optic trick Republican party leaders in Cleveland are using to present a unified image for TV audiences is to put California’s 172 delegates front-and-center on the convention floor for the four-day gathering.
