Councilwoman Liz Lawler Runs for Open Assembly Seat

By Roger Riffenburgh

Monte Sereno Councilwoman Liz Lawler is running in the new Assembly District 28, which is now an open seat. Five-term incumbent Assemblyman Mark Stone, a Democrat from Santa Cruz who was expected to run, recently announced his retirement rather than running in the reconfigured district.

“I am running for State Assembly to restore common sense, accountability and cooperation to Sacramento,” says Lawler. "I am driven by the needs of our residents, not ideology." Among her priority issues are: helping students succeed by allowing parents "the freedom to choose the best schools for their children"; building needed homes through locally driven decisions rather than state dictated policies; and stopping violence by holding violent and habitual criminals accountable.

“Government needs to deliver the basics: public safety, infrastructure and education,“ explains Lawler. “The Democrats have had control of our state for the better part of 60 years, and we are now living with the consequences of policies that are about political expediency, not results.” . . .  read more
