California Governor Jerry Brown Endorses Congresswoman Julia Brownley for California’s 26th Congressional District
Ventura County, CA- Today, California Governor Jerry Brown officially endorsed Congresswoman Julia Brownley for California’s 26th congressional district, which encompasses most of Ventura County and a portion of Los Angeles County.
“I am endorsing Julia Brownley for Congress because she is a strong independent leader,” said Governor Brown. “She has a solid record of fighting for women, veterans, and middle class families. I urge Ventura County voters to support Julia Brownley on November 4th because she’ll always stand up to special interests and represent Ventura County values in Washington.”
Brownley has served as Ventura County’s congresswoman since 2012 and for her first committee assignment, Brownley requested to serve on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs where she works closely with Ventura County’s veterans community and Naval Base Ventura County. Brownley was also elected as the Ranking Member of the Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Health, and she also serves on the Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity.
“I am honored to receive Governor Brown’s endorsement,” commented Congresswoman Brownley. “He knows my record when it comes to fighting for California in Congress. From statewide drought issues to local environmental concerns, I am committed to working towards bipartisan solutions that put California first—not special interests.”
Happy early St. Patrick’s Day from Ventura! We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to join the Elks Lodge in their 29th annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.
It was wonderful to see so many Ventura County residents turn out for the Planned Parenthood rally last week. There is no doubt that President Trump and the Republicans are hellbent on taking away a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions and to take back critical protections in current healthcare legislation. Our voices are being heard. We must continue to speak out.
