Oakland Tribune Endorses Tony Thurmond for Assembly
In Assembly District 15, two Democrats advanced to the general election: Tony Thurmond and Elizabeth Echols. In a district with 65% of voters registered with the Democratic party, this should not come as a surprise.
While both candidates are registered Democrats, Thurmond has demonstrated a deep understanding for his district and the people he hopes to represent.
"Thurmond, the only one with elective office experience, has a critical understanding of local government issues that Echols lacks -- a knowledge base that will serve him well in Sacramento.” - The Oakland Tribune
