Torrance, CA -. The race for the 66th Assembly seat is widely considered to be the number one priority and opportunity for the state Assembly leadership to regain a Democratic seat. In 2014, The 66th Assembly District, a moderate, bipartisan District, elected David Hadley, an extreme Republican and tea party member who refuses to denounce his party’s Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump for his racist and sexist comments, largely due to the fact that many Democrats stayed home in the off-year elections. Fortunately, the voting electorate is expected to be much different in 2016, as Democrats return to the polls for the Presidential election.

It’s a likely boost for Al Muratsuchi, a former Assemblymember for the District and Democratic candidate for the seat in 2016, who is a moderate Democrat much better suited for the District.

“One person, one vote” protections Ensure Equal Protection for all voters, including immigrants and other non-voters

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Assemblyman David Hadley is continuing to show his extreme, right-wing colors by refusing to support “one person, one vote” protections. These protections, ruled upon affirmatively by the U.S. Supreme Court just last month, ensure that population apportionment is determined by total population rather than just voting population. That means every person, including those who cannot vote or choose not to vote, is given equal representation.

Apparently Hadley hasn’t gotten the memo that all people, not just his Republican cronies, matter equally under the law.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Assemblyman David Hadley is continuing his tradition of accepting thousands of dollars in oil company money to fund his campaigns. His campaign has taken in $25,000 from oil and energy companies, including Chevron, whose Richmond, California refinery explosion caused 15,000 people to seek treatment at local hospitals, and the Independent Petroleum Association, funded by E&B Oil, the company behind the residential oil drilling proposal in Hermosa Beach.

And the presence of oil money shows. He refused to take a position on the Torrance ExxonMobil explosion, saying instead he would “study the issue.” Further, he never even took a position on oil drilling off the coast of Hermosa Beach. Instead, as has become his go-to strategy, he ducked the issue again - saying he would let the voters decide the issue.
