Smith is a Fierce Advocate for Women and Families
As a long-time resident of California’s 25th Congressional District, I am writing to express why Assemblywoman Christy Smith is the best candidate to represent our communities in Congress.
While I was disappointed to see the Antelope Valley Press endorse Steve Knight ahead of the March primary, it’s not too late for voters to make the right decision by supporting Christy Smith in the upcoming Special Election on May 12.
As a member of the state Assembly, Smith has proven to be a fierce advocate for women and families and a champion for reproductive freedom. She has devoted her career to public service, moving the state forward on healthcare and education and fighting tirelessly on behalf of the communities she represents.
Unlike Mike Garcia, Smith will faithfully represent the 84% of Californians who believe women should be able to make personal decisions about pregnancy without interference from politicians.
Voters were loud and clear in 2018 when we flipped this seat from Red to Blue and sent a Democratic majority to Congress. In 2020, we will once again reject anti-choice, anti-science candidates like Mike Garcia, whose values could not be more out-of-touch with the communities he seeks to represent.
For these reasons and many more, I highly encourage the voters of the 25th District to cast their ballots for Christy Smith.
