Patrick O’Donnell has been a leader in the community as a classroom teacher, father, city councilman, and an active member in organizations dedicated to the advancement of Long Beach. Born and raised in Long Beach, O’Donnell is the Independent Voter PAC endorsed candidate to represent Assembly District 70.
O’Donnell's background as a teacher for 19 years provides him with the necessary understanding to be an effective advocate for our schools. As such he has fought for better access to education.
As a City Council member, O’Donnell quickly established himself as a leader. He was Vice Chair of the Budget Oversight Committee and helped produce the first budget surplus in Long Beach in over a decade. In this position on the City Council he has proven his commitment to accountability, acting as the only council member to hold a monthly meeting for constituents to directly speak with him about concerns and community updates.
His dedication to his constituency, a passion for creating a better tomorrow for our children, and his proven record of accountability are characteristics we need in Sacramento. The Independent Voter PAC proudly endorses Patrick O’Donnell for Assembly District 70.
