FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Torrance, CA – Tonight, Al Muratsuchi, candidate for Assembly for the 66th District, participated in the League of Women Voters’ forum at Toyota Hall in Torrance. He spoke about many issues, including his plan to bring and create jobs for the South Bay, how he will keep the Torrance oil refinery safe for the people of Torrance and his support of Proposition 13. He also spoke about his support of climate change legislation and a statewide ban on fracking.
“I am proud of my record in bringing jobs to the South Bay, especially in the area of aerospace. I chaired the Assembly Aerospace committee, and as the chairman of that committee I introduced two bills that were signed into law. One, AB777, was a bill that provided taxes as an incentive to keep private space exploration companies like SpaceX in the state in California. This came after my visit to SpaceX. They were talking about leaving California for Texas. I obviously did not want that to happen, and wanted to encourage and help to grow one of the most exciting companies in the Southern California and the South Bay to grow. I was able to get that signed into law. SpaceX has now grown to over four thousand manufacturing jobs. I also proud to have co-authored a bill that provided tax incentives that helped Northrop Grumman land the biggest Aerospace contract in decades that will bring over 5,500 thousand of jobs to Southern California. These bills are job creator bills that I am proud to have offered and signed into law.”
Here are examples:
Accusing Al Muratsuchi of making it more difficult to fire teachers who molest students and using pictures of children being dragged into the darkness by rapists.
TRUTH: Al Muratsuchi co-authored a bill to streamline firing of bad teachers, a bill endorsed by the L.A. Times and Crime Victims United. He cares about teachers and students, and the bill would have made it easier to fire teachers accused of improper behavior.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Torrance, CA – Republican David Hadley sure seems to like those anti-immigration Republicans in his party. Trump has called Mexicans rapists and has repeatedly called for building a wall with Mexico. Yet, Hadley never really forcefully denounced him. Now, Hadley has taken $1,000 from Governor Pete Wilson, a prime supporter of California Proposition 187, a 1994 law that would have denied public services to illegal immigrants if it had been found constitutional.
Pretty sure Hadley won’t denounce or give back that money from Pete Wilson. Why? Because he, too, agrees with their anti-immigrant beliefs. Hadley even proudly keynoted the notoriously anti-immigrant Freedom Center retreat with a speech called, “How Conservatives Can Win in California.”
“I’m sure the voters in the 66th District would like to know that David Hadley has been hanging around with these extreme anti-immigration Republicans. As the saying goes, you are the company you keep. He needs to denounce all that Pete Wilson stands for, and return that money. Otherwise he has just proven what we all know to be true: that he is hiding his true record. He is too extreme for the South Bay,” says Mike Shimpock, campaign consultant.

“Yet another flare-up at the refinery is just not acceptable for the people who live in Torrance," said Al Muratsuchi candidate for Assembly for the 66th District, which includes Torrance. “The refinery’s use of the highly toxic modified hydrofluoric acid, a chemical that if accidentally released could threaten the lives of hundreds of thousands of South Bay residents, is of great concern. That’s why I am calling for a ban on the use of modified hydrofluoric acid. This dangerous chemical does not belong in a residential community like Torrance. We need to find safer alternatives to this chemical."
Al Muratsuchi’s six-point Torrance Refinery Safety plan is listed below:
"I condemn Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s recently released 2005 taped comments he made on Access Hollywood about women in the strongest of terms. Not only are his comments demeaning to women, they also reference sexual assault. Unbelievably, Trump said that he could grab a woman as he pleases, just because he is a 'star.' Domestic violence and sexual assault, in any form, are unacceptable and cannot be tolerated. Because of this, and the many other degrading statements Trump has said about women throughout the campaign, I agree with many in his party that Trump should drop out of the race."
"I also call on Republican Assemblymember David Hadley to demand that Donald Trump drop out of the race. So far, he has not condemned the tape. What’s worse, he even attended a Trump-sponsored event at Trump National Golf Club on Friday, the same day that the tape was released. But then again, Hadley isn’t exactly a friend to women."
