Progressive State Senator Enters Race to Fill California’s 11th District; Lauds Rep. Miller’s Record Calling Him “One of California’s Strongest Champions for Working People & the Middle Class”

CONCORD, CA— Today State Senator Mark DeSaulnier announced that he will run for California’s 11th Congressional district seat, which will be vacated by Rep. George Miller next year.

“I considered Rep. Miller one of California’s strongest champions for working people and the middle class,” said Senator DeSaulnier. “I’ve always greatly admired Rep. Miller’s tireless work ethic, his dedication to the residents of his district, along with his deep devotion and perseverance in fighting for the progressive values and issues that matter most to Californians.”

Senator DeSaulnier added, “Rep. Miller will be missed, but his legacy of working to create good jobs, increase access to healthcare, improve our schools, and help California flourish in a global economy, will live on forever.”

“It’s truly been an honor working closely with Rep. Miller for over 20 years on a variety of critical issues. We’ve partnered together during my tenures as a local City Councilman, County Supervisor, member of the State Assembly, and recently in my current job as a member of the State Senate.”

“I’m running for Congress to help bring an end to the brinkmanship and gridlock in Washington, so that we can move forward with President Obama’s agenda of creating more good paying jobs, growing our middle class, investing in our infrastructure, increasing access to healthcare, advancing the use of renewable and homegrown energy, enhancing our education systems, and making the United States a leader in innovation around the globe.”

“I plan to hit the ground running hard in this campaign.  I am ready to run and ready to serve the people of the 11th District,” explained Senator DeSaulnier.

Currently, DeSaulnier represents California’s 7th State Senate district, which covers 70% of California’s 11th Congressional district. Previously DeSaulnier represented California’s old 11th State Assembly district, and prior to his time in the legislature, he served as a Contra Costa County Supervisor and Concord City Council member.

No difference what so ever. Miller is disgusting and Mark is just a shirt tail away.

For why Jan 13, 2014 - 5:29 pm

It should be against the law for an elected official to run for another elected office while holding his/her elected office. They should resign so their seat can be filled during the same election. If the are unsuccessful then they can be unemployed like those they represent.

Mcnerney should run for his seat, then he wouldn’t have to lie about where he lives anymore!

Desaulnier needs to find another profession. If he gets elected we have some real stupid voters.
The damage he did to Contra Costa will remain for years and years. I’d vote for Taylor before him.

In 'da Know Jan 13, 2014 - 8:28 pm

Of course you would Johnny. You are about as bright as Taylor. In fact I’d put ‘ya both in the same category. You two deserve each other.

BTW, instead of innuendos next time, maybe you can produce a rational thought? Like exactly what “damage” Miller did to CC County?

ECVsBrother Jan 13, 2014 - 9:30 pm

In the idiot,
First of all why you call me Johnny and second Miller never did anything to Contra Costa. Desaulnier did, fool.
