Lancaster Councilmembers Endorse Lackey in Assembly Race
PALMDALE- Tom Lackey’s growing support for his race in the 36th Assembly District continued with the endorsements of Lancaster City Council Members Marvin Crist, Sandra Johnson and Ken Mann.
“Tom has proven himself to be a leader during his time serving on the Palmdale City Council and numerous other local government boards and committees,” said Councilman Crist. “I know this hands-on experience gives him the tools to be effective in Sacramento, and he will use them to focus on the most important issues facing our community: reducing unemployment and improving public safety.”
Lackey has served on the Palmdale City Council since 2005 and is also a delegate for the Antelope Valley Transit Authority, Citizens Advisory Committee for California State Prison- Los Angeles County and is a director for the Metrolink Southern California Regional Rail Authority.
“For too long the State Capitol has ignored the importance of creating a business-friendly environment, and here in the Antelope Valley we have paid the price with double digit unemployment,” said Councilmember Johnson. “Electing Tom Lackey is the first place to start in reversing this.”
Lackey is running to replace Assemblyman Steve Fox in what will be one of the most closely monitored legislative races in California.
“I am honored to gain the support of Councilmembers Crist, Johnson and Mann,” said Lackey of the endorsements. “I am working hard to build a strong coalition of community support and the outpouring I have received has been a true blessing.”
Until his retirement with the rank of sergeant in late December 2013, Tom was a California Highway Patrol Office since 1985.
