David v. Goliath: A Win by Coronado Could Break California Records

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIF. – Today, Dr. Alexandria Coronado released the following statement regarding her bid to represent California’s 65th Assembly District.

“First and foremost, I would like to thank the thousands of supporters that have rallied behind our campaign.  Your support has meant the world to me, and my family, and this David v Goliath campaign could not have been competitive without you.

For the past several years, I have watched self-interested politicians create harmful policies that have negatively impacted our state. Their hypocrisy and failed leadership have led to higher crime rates, an increase in homelessness, and harmful regressive taxes that are crippling middle and lower-class families. And it hasn’t stopped there, my opponent’s heinous voting record with regard to criminal justice policies have handcuffed our police officers and protected sexual predators. Not only have her campaigns been funded by high-profile sexual predators but she has also voted to silence children who were victims of sex crimes.

This ends tomorrow.

Despite being outspent by over $1.5 million dollars (most of it including special interest money), I am happy to report that it is still anyone’s race and I predict we will see victory on Tuesday. No more will we let selfish, Sacramento politicians determine the future of our communities. No more will the safety of our children be put at risk for petty party politics. This Election Day we will take back our state. Thank you for your support and I’ll see you at the polls! ”

Coronado Supports Assemblyman Harper’s Effort to Protect Survivors of Domestic Violence

Dr. Alexandria Coronado is joining forces with California State Assemblyman Matthew Harper to advocate on behalf of survivors of domestic violence

(Sacramento, CA) This morning, 65th Assembly Candidate Dr. Alexandria Coronado announced her support for Assemblyman Matthew Harper’s effort to protect survivors of domestic abuse. The bill, AB 2462, would require judges to take into consideration whether a victim was allegedly strangled or suffocated prior determining bail amounts.

“Domestic violence is one of the most serious issues facing women today. While some existing laws protect the right of survivors, there are dangerous loop holes in the system that must be addressed,” said Dr. Coronado. “Similar to other methods of analyzing the severity of dangerous crimes, like a gun in a robbery, judges need to take into consideration strangling or choking, in relation to domestic violence. Survivors of domestic violence are often too scared to defend themselves. Today, I’m standing up to support innocent women and children who are traumatized and victimized by these criminals, every day.”

The bill will be considered in a hearing at 9am on April 10th by the Assembly Public Safety Committee. Dr. Coronado will be attending the hearing to show her support.
