Says Muratsuchi is Best Candidate to Protect Women's Reproductive Rights
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Al Muratsuchi's campaign to retake the 66th Assembly District seat continues to gain momentum as Planned Parenthood of California endorses him.
"Al Muratsuchi has a strong record of supporting women's reproductive health, and we know that he will continue to expand upon that record when he gets back to Sacramento. Al trusts women to make their own health care decisions, and supports access to life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, and safe, legal abortion. Women and families in the 66th Assembly District can count on him to be their advocate in our state's Capitol." says Celinda M. Vazquez, Vice President of External Affairs, Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County.
Muratsuchi represented the 66th Assembly District from 2012 to 2014, and is widely considered the number one priority and opportunity for state Assembly leadership to regain Democratic seats.
"Muratsuchi has the record, the infrastructure, and the grassroots support needed to take back this seat," said campaign consultant Mike Shimpock. "Republicans barely defeated him in their best year in recent memory. Turnout and expected Democratic performance in 2016 means Muratsuchi will be the next and future Assemblymember from the 66th District."
Muratsuchi has lived in the South Bay for the past twenty years with his wife and daughter. He is a Deputy Attorney General with the California Department of Justice, a former Torrance School Board member, and a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and UCLA School of Law.
