Assemblymember Isadore Hall Announces Run for Re-Election in the New 64th Assembly District
Compton, CA -
Assemblymember Isadore Hall announced today he would seek reelection to theState Assembly in the new 64th District. The 64th Assembly District includes the cities andcommunities of Compton, Carson, Watts, Wilmington, Willowbrook as well as portions of LongBeach and Los Angeles.
Statement from Isadore Hall:
“I am proud to announce that I am running for re-election to the Assembly to continue to fight for California, our local communities, schools, neighborhoods and families. My singular focushas and will always be to stand up for the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party—our devotion to justice, to equal opportunity, and to human rights; our belief in the potential of people to change things for the better; and our commitment to help working families by providing affordable healthcare, good public schools, safe streets and a clean environment.Earlier this year, I announced my candidacy for Congress after it appeared a new district wasdrawn that included all of the cities and communities I have so proudly represented for many years. I answered the call from many friends and constituents to take our fight to Washington,D.C. on behalf of the working families, children and older Americans who have suffered from theRepublican Congressional leadership’s obstructionism and right-wing radicalism. I believed then,as I do now, that our community deserves a representative who will fight cuts to education, jobtraining and social security and Medicare. We need someone who will partner with President Obama to create family wage jobs.Weeks after my announcement, the Redistricting Commission changed the district boundaries,ultimately creating a district that two incumbent Democratic members of Congress are now seeking. The fact is, the race for Congress was never about me. It was never my intention toengage in an expensive intra-party war. It was about my constituents—real people I have been proud to serve and can continue to serve as a member of the State legislature.The Democratic Party needs unity. We need to stand together and stand up to those whothreaten our values. As Democrats, we understand that in 2012, the test of our progress will NOT be how many millionaires we make richer, but how many millions of Californians we helprise from the depths of poverty and dependency to find jobs for themselves, and a future for their families.
