ORANGE COUNTY, CA – – Diane Dixon’s campaign for the 74th Assembly District continues to gain momentum as Diane Dixon announced the endorsement of Irvine Mayor Christina Shea.
The City of Irvine is split between the 74th and 68th Assembly District but still represents the largest voting bloc in the 74th District. Other communities in the district include Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Laguna Woods and Laguna Beach.
“As a resident of the 74th District, I’m proud to support Diane Dixon. As a local council member, Diane Dixon is someone that understands how state mandates and policies directly affect us,” said Mayor Christina Shea. “Diane will lead with a local voice and her understanding that control at the local level is paramount to any politics at the state level is something we really need right now.”
With Sacramento politicians working on legislation out of step with the voters of the 74th District, Diane Dixon is gaining key endorsements recently from local community leaders such as the Orange County Deputy District Attorneys Association, Senator John Moorlach and now Mayor Christina Shea. The 74th District is quickly becoming one of the top battlegrounds for Republicans in the 2020 election cycle.
“The world has changed dramatically over the last few months and a lot of feedback I’m getting from the local community is that people are tired of being given direction from Sacramento which gives blanket policies and mandates that treat every community in California the same. We are unique here in this community,” said Dixon. “Sacramento wants to control everything from how we protect ourselves from the pandemic, send our children to school, run our businesses, or even spend our free time at the beach. People have had enough and they feel like Sacramento is good at handing our direction but not listening to their voice and I plan to be that voice for them. I will work with people like Mayor Christina Shea to be a voice for our community in Sacramento.”
