Buckles under pressure and then decides to not take a stand at all
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Assemblymember David Hadley has decided again to duck and run when it comes to decisions that matter to the people of the South Bay. In a pattern that has become his signature move in Sacramento, Hadley sidesteps an issue by taking no stand at all and then pretends like he has actually taken a stand. In this case, he announced, in an Op-ed, that he would make a non-decision in the Presidential race by voting for neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, his Republican party’s nominee.

The California Fair Political Practices Commission confirmed it is investigating allegations that Assemblyman David Hadley illegally coordinated with an independent expenditure committee supporting him.
“ExxonMobil’s repeated violation of air pollution standards is unacceptable. Children and working families in Torrance and the South Bay are being repeatedly exposed to emissions exceeding AQMD standards. Clearly the fines appear to have been inadequate as a deterrent. AQMD needs to crack down more effectively on air pollution violations and do a better job of monitoring and sharing information on the air that we are breathing.”

Candidate for the 66th District Assembly, Al Muratsuchi, came out on top in the June 7 primary, but turnout, as in the 2014 race, will decide whether or not he takes the seat back from incumbent Assemblyman David Hadley in November.
Muratsuchi won the primary by 4 percentage points—4,540 votes—by carrying Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Gardena and West Carson by healthy margins of 5 percent. He won Lomita and Torrance by 2 and 3 percentage points respectively. Muratsuchi lost Manhattan Beach by a slim margin. He lost the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Hadley by wide margins.
