Assemblyman Mike Morrell Announces Run for State Senate
Respected local businessman announces the launch of his campaign to represent the 23rd Senate District
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 12, 2013
(RANCHO CUCAMONGA) – Friday, Senator Emmerson submitted his resignation effective December 1, 2013. I would like to express appreciation for his service to the people of California.
These past few days have been busy; I’ve sought counsel from family, trusted-advisors and Republican Leadership. It is with great conviction that I announce my candidacy for the 23rd Senate District.
I believe that I will be able to seamlessly assume the duties of Senator and effectively represent the Senate District. In the State Assembly I have the privilege of already representing half of the seat. I’ve lived in the Inland Empire all my life – I know the people and their concerns.
Serving the public is an honor and a responsibility that I take seriously. When elected to the Senate, I will continue to work hard to make government more responsive to the people. Reducing red tape and costly regulatory policies to retain and create jobs will also be a top priority for me.
I am grateful to my family and friends for their support. I consider it a privilege to have represented the constituents in the 40th Assembly District and look forward to representing them as their Senator.
Lastly, thanks to a host of elected officials who endorsed me over the weekend: Mayors Michael of Rancho Cucamonga, Mayor Rigsby of Loma Linda, Mayor Larry McCallon, Mayor Pro tem Penny Lilburn and Councilmember Jody Scott of Highland. Additional endorsements will be rolled out in the days to come. I’ll keep you posted.
