South Bay Assemblyman David Hadley refuses to denounce Donald Trump
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On the day that GOP Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump addresses the California GOP convention, Former State Assemblyman and Democratic Candidate for Assembly in the 66th District Al Muratsuchi issues the following statement regarding Trump:
“Donald Trump is too extreme for both the South Bay and our country. I denounce Trump’s divisive and hateful campaign. He has repeatedly degraded women, immigrants, Latinos, and many others. Trump does not represent South Bay values.
“South Bay Republican Assemblyman David Hadley has failed to denounce Trump and his hateful campaign. As a self-proclaimed Tea Party supporter, Hadley is showing his true colors in failing to condemn Trump’s attacks against women, immigrants, Latinos and others.”
Hadley’s silent support for Trump’s extreme positions are just the latest example of how out-of-touch he is with this moderate, bipartisan district:
· Voted against funding for our schools
· Voted in lockstep with his extremist Republican colleagues against laws to protect our beaches and air from pollution and oil spills
· Refused to support “one person, one vote” protections for voters
· Took $25,000 from the oil companies and opposed clean air regulations
· Voted with Republicans to cut Health Insurance for children
· Opposed health care funding for patients suffering from AIDS/HIV
Republican David Hadley was elected by a 0.6% margin in the lowest turnout election in recorded California history with the aid of nearly $1.2 million in campaign spending from billionaire outsider Charles Munger, Jr., and has repeatedly voted against the interests of his moderate, bipartisan district.
