“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.”

Al Muratsuchi’s campaign to retake the 66th Assembly District seat continues to gain momentum as the Korean American Democratic Committee (KADC) endorses him for the seat.

“Al Muratuschi understands the issues that matter to the people of the South Bay. He has a strong record of supporting women’s reproductive health, the environment, public safety and our schools, and we know that he will continue to expand upon that record when he gets to Sacramento in November. He is the right leader for the 66th Assembly District,” said Gene F. Kim, KADC President.

The Korean American Democratic Committee (KADC) is a countywide Democratic organization chartered by the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. It was founded in 1992 to engage and mobilize the Korean American community to participate in the local, state and federal electoral process.

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 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.

TORRANCE, CA – Democratic votes led Republicans by 10% as Al Muratsuchi handily won Tuesday's primary against incumbent Assemblymember David Hadley in the race for the 66th Assembly district, a race that is widely considered to be the number one priority and opportunity for the state Democratic Assembly leadership to regain a seat.

As California files criminal charges against the Texas-based oil pipeline company, Plains All-American Pipeline, for the oil leak in Santa Barbara last year, Assemblyman David Hadley continues to put the South Bay beaches at risk of becoming the next Santa Barbara. With his support of onshore drilling and fracking, he is refusing to acknowledge the inherent risk that any kind of oil drilling threatens the South Bay’s pristine beaches and the citizens who use them.

Al Muratsuchi Likely to Benefit from Democratic Turnout in Presidential Election Year

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Torrance, CA -. The race for the 66th Assembly seat is widely considered to be the number one priority and opportunity for the state Assembly leadership to regain a Democratic seat. In 2014, The 66th Assembly District, a moderate, bipartisan District, elected David Hadley, an extreme Republican and tea party member who refuses to denounce his party’s Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for his racist and sexist comments, largely due to the fact that many Democrats stayed home in the off-year elections. Fortunately, the voting electorate is expected to be much different in 2016, as Democrats return to the polls for the Presidential election.

It’s a likely boost for Al Muratsuchi, a former Assemblymember for the District and Democratic candidate for the seat in 2016, who is a moderate Democrat much better suited for the District.

“One person, one vote” protections Ensure Equal Protection for all voters, including immigrants and other non-voters

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Mike Shimpock, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Assemblyman David Hadley is continuing to show his extreme, right-wing colors by refusing to support “one person, one vote” protections. These protections, ruled upon affirmatively by the U.S. Supreme Court just last month, ensure that population apportionment is determined by total population rather than just voting population. That means every person, including those who cannot vote or choose not to vote, is given equal representation.

Apparently Hadley hasn’t gotten the memo that all people, not just his Republican cronies, matter equally under the law.
