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."
Al Muratsuchi has called for greater oversight of the Torrance Refining Company and has created a detailed, six-point refinery safety plan to help keep families in Torrance safe. This plan, includes a ban of modified hydrofluoric acid, real-time air quality monitors, a community disaster preparedness plan and an effective alarm system that can warn residents of any emissions.
