Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement on the election result for Assembly District 39:
“On behalf of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, I thank Assembly Member Raul Bocanegra for his service to the 39th Assembly District. As a state legislator and a community leader, Bocanegra has worked hard to revitalize the local economy, invest in small business growth, increase film tax credit and keep filming in California, and fight cuts to after-school programs for our kids. I am sure he will continue to be an active voice for our community and have a bright future in public service.
“I congratulate Assembly Member-Elect Patty Lopez on her election. We look forward to working with her to tackle the critical issues ahead and to continue moving the San Fernando Valley forward.”
