The following is a paid political message from Melissa Melendez for State Assembly - 67th District

Navy Veteran, Small Business Owner, Successful Mayor

Our state and country are hungry for new leadership. That’s why I ran for City Council in 2008 - to make a difference. Now, I’m running for the State Assembly because I know we can do better in Sacramento. In Lake Elsinore, we got the job done. We established an annual tax holiday, saving our local job creators over $100,000 in fees, we reformed public pension benefits for city employees, and we lead the nation in implementing tough immigration policies such as E-Verify at the local level.

I am honored to have served our country for 10 years in the U.S. Navy as a Russian translator for intelligence-gathering missions at the height of the Cold War. I was also chosen to be one of the first women to fly aboard an EP-3 Renaissance aircraft. After serving in the Navy, I started my own successful small business.

In 2008, I was elected to the Lake Elsinore City Council. In 2010, as Mayor, I led the city through a number of reforms to improve the way government conducts business. Every policy decision that crosses my desk is put to the test of whether it increases transparency, ensures government accountability, and exemplifies fiscal prudence.

I met my wonderful husband Nico while we were both serving in the Navy. We’ve been married for 15 years, and have five amazing children. I was president of the local PTA, president of our Homeowner’s Association, and a member of the American Legion and the Lake Elsinore Woman’s Club.

Together, I know we can get the job done in Sacramento. I know we will get California’s economy back on track, improve our education system and protect our quality of life.

On November 6th, I ask for your vote to represent California’s 67th Assembly District.
