SANTA CLARITA VALLEY DEMOCRATS ENDORSE CHRISTY SMITH FOR CONGRESS, PILAR SCHIAVO FOR ASSEMBLY, CECIL RHAMBO FOR COUNTY SHERIFF
The Santa Clarita Valley Democrats are proud to announce the first of their endorsed candidates for the 2022 election cycle: Christy Smith for U.S. House, Pilar Schiavo for California State Assembly, and Cecil Rhambo for Los Angeles County Sheriff.
Members of the Santa Clarita Valley Democrats voted unanimously to endorse the three candidates on February 26, 2022.
“From her work with the Valencia Valley Technological Education Foundation to her service in the California State Assembly, Christy Smith has served our local communities for decades, and we trust that she will truly represent the values of middle-class families in Congress,” said Jackie Thomas, Vice Chair of the Santa Clarita Valley Democrats. “We’re proud to endorse Smith because our district needs a representative who is deeply familiar with our communities and prioritizes working families, not an out-of-touch politician who parrots extremist, corporate talking points.”
“Pilar Schiavo has dedicated her life to uplifting working families,” said Andrew Taban, Chair of the Santa Clarita Valley Democrats. “Everyday Californians need a seat at the table now more than ever, and we know from her years of experience advocating for good, mortgage- and rent-paying jobs and for accessible quality healthcare that we can trust Schiavo to fight tirelessly for the priorities of the Santa Clarita Valley’s working families in the Assembly.”
“The people of Los Angeles County deserve a County Sheriff who approaches the great responsibility of the office with compassion, integrity, and honesty,” said Andrew Taban, Chair of the Santa Clarita Valley Democrats. “Chief Cecil Rhambo has demonstrated that he will do exactly that.”
The Santa Clarita Valley Democrats is an organization chartered with the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. SCVD is dedicated to connecting neighbors, supporting Democratic leadership, and serving the communities of the Santa Clarita Valley and surrounding areas.
