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.”

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.
