Tepring's Message on Assemblymember Ridely-Thomas
Statement of Tepring Michelle Piquado, Democratic Candidate for Assembly in California’s 54th District, on Assemblymember Sebastian Ridley-Thomas’ Resignation.
I thank Assemblymember Ridley-Thomas for his years of service to our community and wish him a speedy recovery.
Today, I begin my campaign. Years of thought, education and hard work have gone into my decision to transition from a scientist to an elected official. I have a strong calling to serve my community and be a fighter for us today and a thoughtful leader for tomorrow. I will grow my support by listening to you, the members of our community. With your support, I promise to think critically and act compassionately to improve the lives of everyone in our community.
