Quirk-Silva Votes Against Bill to Save Californians Thousands of Dollars

(Fullerton, CA) – Recently, Sharon “Gas-Tax” Silva (D—Fullerton) voted against an amendment which would have eliminated a mandate saving Californians an average of $10,000. The mandate enacted by the California Energy Commission would require the installation of solar panels on every new home in California.

She has shown consistency in voting for special interests in Sacramento time and time again,” said Dr. Alexandria Coronado, candidate for the 65th Assembly District. “Our residents struggle with the lack of affordable housing in California and it is upsetting to see Asm. Silva continue to fail middle and lower-income families throughout California.”

Quirk-Silva Campaign Spends Half a Million Dollars in Primary Election Tie

By | Press Release, Statement | No Comments

Opponent Coronado Spends $25,000 in Primary and Coasts into General Against the Champion of the Gas Tax

(Cypress, CA) – Incumbent Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva had a disappointing showing at last night’s Primary election after spending half million dollars in an attempt to secure her position in California’s 65th Assembly District. In contrast, republican challenger Dr. Alexandria Coronado, spent $25,000 and received 49% of the vote.

“Last night was a referendum on the champions of the Gas Tax, Senator Josh Newman and Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva,” said 65th Assembly Candidate Dr. Alexandria Coronado. “My opponent spent a small fortune covering up her failed record that put politics over the people. This goes to show you that all the money in the world does not make up for selling out your constituents.”

“Over the last few months, we watched hundreds of thousands of dollars in special interest money pour into Sharon Quirk-Silva’s campaign coffers; and with the exception of removing money given to her campaign by alleged sexual predators, she spent half a million dollars just to remain competitive,” said Campaign Spokesman Alex Avetoom. “While we suspect Sharon Quirk-Silva will continue to run a dirty, negative campaign, Dr. Coronado is chomping at the bit to get out there and win for the people of her district. Last night, Josh Newman lost his seat because of the gas tax, and come November, Sharon Quirk-Silva will lose hers.”
