Democrat Luis Lopez is clearly the best choice for the 51st district assembly seat. A tireless local progressive, Luis knows the ins and outs of the district, its people and our needs. He is committed to be a strong voice for us in the capitol.
In the Assembly he will continue the work he’s done in the community for the past decade: Standing up for women’s health, HIV services and healthcare for all. Supporting the arts and parks when many would cut them into non-existence. Promoting local job creation through smart development that attracts businesses while addressing neighborhood concerns. Improving schools for students, teachers and the communities. Encouraging pet adoptions and animal rights. Speaking up for marriage equality and equal rights for all Californians. He will fight for our priorities because they are his priorities, too.
More than 300 community leaders support Luis, and he is endorsed by many local service and labor organizations. He is also uniquely qualified to help break the partisan logjam in Sacramento as he is a rare progressive Democrat with the respect and support of many Republicans and independents, without ever wavering in his convictions. He will reach out to all parties who share his vision of moving our district and state forward.
Luis is beholden only to the district residents, and more than 80% of his campaign contributions have come from individuals. By contrast, his opponent, Jimmy Gomez, has gotten more than 80% of his contributions from PACs, corporations and outside interests, strings firmly attached. Indeed, Gomez has so little invested in the district that he himself seems unsure of exactly how long he has lived here. We deserve better than a carpetbagger using our district as a vote for special interests; we deserve a representative like Luis who has proved he's prepared to work hard and deliver for us, the people.
Vote Luis Lopez for Assembly on November 6.
