Al Muratsuchi wrote laws that helped bring thousands of good aerospace and other jobs in California. In the Assembly he will continue the work of fighting for jobs, job training, and the kind of economic investments that create good paying jobs in the South Bay. That’s why he was named Legislator of the Year by the California Solar Energy Industries Association and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, and that’s why he’s supported by the California Small Business Association.
As a former Assemblymember and Torrance School Board member, Al Muratsuchi has a record of delivering the funding our schools need to help our students succeed. As a Torrance school board member, he fought to create a rainy-day fund to prevent cuts to classrooms in future economic crises. In the Assembly he helped restore more than $10 billion in funding to our state and local schools slashed during the recession and wrote laws to crack down on predators in our schools. That’s why he’s supported by parents and classroom teachers.
Police officers and firefighters support Al Muratsuchi for Assembly. Al is a career prosecutor who will crack down on crime and protect our children, families, and neighborhoods. He will put the safety of our communities first – and ensure our first responders have the tools and support they need to protect our community.
Al Muratsuchi will stand up to powerful special interests to keep our air, drinking water, and beaches free of pollution. He fought against oil drilling in Hermosa Beach, opposed Measure O, and fought for a safer Torrance refinery. He wrote a law to help fund the protection of our coast. He will stand up to the oil companies and polluters to protect our beaches, water, and air. That’s why he’s supported by the Sierra Club.
