Al Muratsuchi’s campaign to retake the 66th Assembly District seat continues to gain momentum as dozens of Los Angeles and South Bay elected officials endorse him.

“It’s no coincidence that so many South Bay and Los Angeles leaders are supporting Al Muratsuchi for Assembly. He is a strong supporter of schools and teachers, creating jobs and protecting the environment and coastline. What’s more, he will reach across the aisle to work with leaders from all parties to best represent his moderate, bipartisan district. He is the best choice to represent the South Bay in Sacramento,” says Los Angeles City Councilmember Joe Buscaino.

Muratsuchi represented the 66th Assembly District from 2012 to 2014, and is widely considered the number one priority and opportunity for state Assembly leadership to regain Democratic seats.

“Muratsuchi has the record, the infrastructure, and the grassroots support needed to take back this seat,” said campaign consultant Mike Shimpock. “Republicans barely defeated him in their best year in recent memory. Turnout and expected Democratic performance in 2016 means Muratsuchi will be the next and future Assemblymember from the 66th District.”

Muratsuchi has lived in the South Bay for the past twenty years with his wife and daughter. He is a Deputy Attorney General with the California Department of Justice, a former Torrance School Board member, and a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and UCLA School of Law.
