In just four days we are going to celebrate the beginning of my next political goal. Come join us!
But first, here's what some folks are saying about my decision. These folks are coming on June 30th to kick things off, are you?
"When local government needed a champion, Anthony was there. As a former Mayor, he understands how important it is to work closely with the cities in his district and he didn't forget where he came from when he went to Sacramento. This takes courage and conviction rare in politics today and he has earned my support."
- Hon. Mary Ann Lutz, Mayor of Monrovia
"Anthony is one of the finest representatives I have worked with during my time in public service. Claire and I are very pleased to support him for the State Senate. His work helping to complete the Gold Line is of particular note and warrants the support of Pasadena residents and the greater San Gabriel Valley."
- Hon. Bill Bogaard, Mayor of Pasadena
"Anthony is a perfect fit to succeed Carol Liu in the State Senate. He works hard, brings people together and solves problems. I'm proud to call him a friend and I know he will do an excellent job representing the 25th State Senate District."
- Hon. Paul Krekorian, Former Assemblymember 43rd District and
Current Los Angeles City Councilmember
"Anthony and I worked together when we were both on City Councils. He's a man of integrity and hard work. He has my complete support."
- Hon. Marsha Ramos, Former Mayor Burbank
"I support Anthony because I know he deeply cares about every child in our school system. He's not just there for one child or one community. Whether it's a foster youth, gate student or students with challenges, he tries to do what's right. That's why he has my support."
- Hon. Renatta Cooper, President Pasadena Unified School District
As you know, the last two years were valuable time I could never get back if I didn't spend it with my mom. The continued quality time with Bella and Sofia is priceless. This adds up to a perfect three year period before the 25th State Senate District opens up in 2016 when my good friend and very able representative Carol Liu terms out of office. Frankly, there is a lot of unfinished business that needs to be done in Sacramento and I aim to do it.
I am very grateful for the support and trust I have received thus far. Your continued support will help me make my voice heard and respected. I'm having a very special district event on June 30th, 3-5 p.m. at the spectacular home of Mary and Bill Urquhart, 1210 Chelten Way, South Pasadena.
June 30th is the first important financial reporting deadline.
Your contribution today is invaluable to my success.
Please use this link to RSVP and help me create the early momentum needed to win. This was our game plan when I ran for the Assembly and it worked. Please help today as the first financial reporting deadline ends Sunday night at midnight.
Please help me show strong early support and/or join us on Sunday afternoon for the party.
If you are willing to let me use your name as a public endorsement, just respond to this e-mail and say,
Yes, you have my permission to list me as a public endorser for State Senate to succeed Carol Liu!
Your support would be great and much appreciated.
