Capps Endorses Williams for Assembly Seat

Elected officials gather in Oxnard for the announcement

Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, announced Monday morning her support for Das Williams, the Democratic candidate for the 35th Assembly District.

“I am confident Das will be a real champion for Central Coast communities in Sacramento,” Capps said. “He has the right experience and a proven track record of getting things done on the issues that matter most to the residents of this district — improving schools, balancing budgets and creating jobs.”

Capps and other elected officials — including Ventura County Supervisor John Zaragoza; Oxnard Mayor Pro Tem Andres Herrera; Ventura City Councilman Carl Morehouse; Stephen Blum, president of the Ventura Unified Education Association; Debbie Golden, president of the Ventura Unified School District; Jess Ramirez, Oxnard Harbor District board president; and Susan Lacey, former Ventura County supervisor — gathered at Plaza Park in downtown Oxnard for the announcement.

Williams emerged with a primary-election win in June after a fierce campaign battle with Susan Jordan. He will face off against Republican Mike Stoker in November’s election.

— James Joyce is an organizer for Das Williams for State Assembly 2010 (District 35).

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
