From our friend Dr. Joaquin Arambula, candidate for California Assembly:
As you may have heard, Assemblymember Henry T. Perea has announced that he plans to resign from the State Assembly at the end of the year. As a father of three young daughters, I understand his desire to support his growing family, and wish Henry and his family the best.
With this surprise announcement, there will be a Special Election to fill out the remaining months of Perea’s term, likely in early April. While the shortened time frame means extra work to deliver our message and turn out voters, we are in a good position to run a strong campaign.
I’m excited! As an Emergency Room doctor, I am used to dealing with the fast-paced, high stress environment of the ER. So, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
Thanks for all your support thus far. I will need your help now more than ever to ensure we are ready.
Elizabeth and I hope you have a blessed and happy holiday season. We thank you for your support this past year and we look forward to meeting all the challenges of the coming year.
