This is my 2nd blog in Patch.com and it has been a wonderful experience.
I live in El Sereno which is part of the new 51st Assembly District. A couple months ago I made my decision on which candidate I am supporting for Assembly. I support Jimmy Gomez.
As I opened my email today, I was greeted with fantastic news from Jimmy’s campaign on his new endorsements! Today Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard along with Congresswomen Linda Sanchez and Grace Napolitano announced their support for Jimmy Gomez!
You see, I’m a 21 year old guy who is passionate about politics and I was impressed with Jimmy Gomez. Just like many families from the 51st District, Jimmy did not come from a privileged family so he worked his way up to be a successful son. He started working at a nearby Target to help his family pay the bills and put food in the table. Then ten years after graduating from high school, he earned a Master in Public Policy degree from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Jimmy then went on to work as the Political Director for the powerful United Nurses Association of California where he worked to protect the rights of our Nurses and Health Care workers.
I’m supporting Jimmy Gomez because he will go to Sacramento a new and fresh style of how California ought to support Californians. Having to work right after High School, Jimmy understands the need for California to invest in Education and make college affordable for our students. His life experience will help him put your and my working family first instead of bending to special interests. Jimmy’s work with the United Nurses Association of California has prepared him to fight against big insurance companies who play with our health and our communities.
For all those reasons, my whole family will be voting for Jimmy Gomez for State Assembly. I hope he is able to garner your trust and support which is the most important endorsement to his campaign!
