Hadley Primary Results Show District Strength, Strong Position for General.

Hadley shows broad support and $858,000 cash-on-hand, Muratsuchi lags far behind with $213,000

TORRANCE – Assemblyman David Hadley (R - Torrance) advanced to the November General Election with a strong showing in Tuesday’s “top two” Primary Election, demonstrating that his independent leadership and South Bay common sense are appealing to voters across the political spectrum.

Hadley also reported $858,000 cash-on-hand for his re-election campaign as of May 21, 2016. This is four times the cash-on-hand of his opponent, Al Muratsuchi, who ended the period with $213,000 on hand. Hadley has continued to receive more financial support from individuals living in his district – the people he represents – than has any other legislative officeholder or candidate in the entire state.

“The Primary Election results clearly demonstrate I’ve successfully engaged with a lot of Democrat and independent voters,” said Hadley. “People in the South Bay are more interested in my non-partisan, common sense approach than the partisan registration of the candidates.”

Saying he expected to come in second in the Primary Election, Hadley stated, “due to the hotly contested Democratic presidential primary, there was a great deal more Democratic voter interest in this June election than Republican turnout. The absentee ballot returns in the South Bay skewed much more heavily Democratic than they did in either the 2014 or the 2012 Primary elections, and we expect election day results will show the same dynamic.”

“I also want to congratulate candidate Mike Madrigal for his candidacy,” added Hadley. “He is a very decent man who I had the pleasure to meet during this campaign and he should be applauded for his civic engagement.”

“Unlike Al Muratsuchi, who ran a very negative, untruthful primary campaign against me, we ran a positive race,” continued Hadley. “For example, Muratsuchi deceitfully said Donald Trump was my choice for President, but I didn’t endorse Trump nor did I vote for him. Trust me, we will be calling out Al Muratsuchi’s deceptions in the General Election,” concluded Hadley.

The Daily Breeze Editorial Board Endorses David Hadley for Re-election to State Assembly

TORRANCE – Assemblyman David Hadley (R - Torrance) today received the endorsement of The Daily Breeze for his re-election to the State Assembly. The editorial board also endorsed Hadley’s candidacy in 2014.

"I am so incredibly honored to receive The Daily Breeze’s endorsement for re-election,” said Hadley. "After reviewing former incumbent Al Muratsuchi’s performance in office, the editorial board did not endorse him for re-election in 2014 and concluded I was the right candidate for the job,” added Hadley.

“Now that The Daily Breeze has seen me in action in elected office,” added Hadley, “they have confirmed they made the right call in 2014 and endorsed my re-election to the State Assembly.”

“Fashioning himself a fiscal conservative focused on school reform, Hadley has done a good job of finding issues where there is common ground, most prominently [government] transparency,” writes the Breeze’s editorial board.

“Yes, a vote for Hadley . . . would ensure that Democrats alone couldn’t . . . raise taxes,” continued the Breeze, “[and] be a show of support for a legislator who sought to find a middle ground within a divided Legislature. [Hadley] will serve his district well.”

The Daily Breeze editorial board cites Hadley’s passage of legislation that protects school children from sexual abuse and increases accountability for government agencies. Click here to read The Daily Breeze’s full endorsement of David Hadley for State Assembly 2016.

California High Speed Rail Authority Forfeits Cap and Trade Money
Assemblyman Hadley bill redirects funds to local transit

Lost in the recent announcement that the California High Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) is shifting its initial route to northern California was the fact that this route is ineligible for $600 million in cap and trade funds. In the 2014 budgetary process, the legislature designated cap and trade funds to the High Speed Rail project on the basis that it would provide pollution relief to underserved communities in the Los Angeles Basin. The new route now excludes these underserved communities and removes the entire basis for High Speed Rail receiving these cap and trade funds.

Today, Assemblyman David Hadley (R-Torrance) announced the introduction of Assembly Bill 1717, which will redirect those forfeited cap and trade dollars to fund local transit projects that directly benefit disadvantaged communities.

“The High Speed Rail Authority’s decision to build the northern California route breaks the promise made to Southern California taxpayers. My legislation will ensure that cap and trade dollars go to the disadvantaged communities they are meant to help,” said Assemblyman Hadley.

In 2014, the legislature passed Senate Bill 862, which provided that 25 percent of all cap and trade dollars must go toward benefiting low income Californians. With 60 percent of the state’s disadvantaged communities in Southern California, the change in route for the High Speed Rail effectively makes this requirement impossible to meet.

“It's clear to me that SB 862 authorized funding only for the specific segment identified in the 2012 Business Plan. The bill did not contain language allowing CHSRA to change its mind in a future Business Plan on where funds can be spent,” said David Schonbrunn, president of the Transportation Solutions Defense and Education Fund (TRANSDEF).

In its 2012 business plan, the CHSRA made a commitment to the California Legislature when it asserted that in exchange for cap and trade funding, it would build the first leg of the High Speed Rail System south, and would accelerate construction of the Burbank to Palmdale segment.

In a letter addressed to Senator Fran Pavley on June 14, 2014, the HSRA committed to use the cap and trade funds granted to the agency through the Senator’s SB 862 to “accelerate work on the segment from Burbank to Palmdale... The Burbank-Palmdale segment, which potentially could become an operating segment on its own, would accelerate benefits to the Los Angeles region.”

AB 1717 will devote the cap and trade funding that HSRA has forfeited to fund the Transportation Agency for the Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program, which in turn will help the communities of southern California and contribute greatly to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions for the state.

Hadley Shows Huge $503,000 Cash-on-Hand Advantage Over Muratsuchi

TORRANCE – Assemblyman David Hadley (R-66th District) not only reported raising $869,838 in 2015 – with $673,163 cash-on-hand – for his re-election campaign, but he has $503,000 more cash than his opponent, Al Muratsuchi.

"I’m proud that I’ve earned more financial support this past year from individual South Bay donors – over $300,000 – than my opponent, Al Muratsuchi, has from all his sources combined,” said Hadley. "In 2016, my opponent will be even more dependent on out-of-district money than he was in 2014.”

Along with Hadley’s substantial fundraising advantage, 66th Assembly District registration has closed between the two major political parties. When Hadley defeated Muratsuchi in 2014, Democrats had an 8% registration advantage, but today, that gap has narrowed to a 7% difference.

As a first-term member of the State Assembly, Hadley authored and garnered bi-partisan support for legislation allowing broader public education opportunities for active-duty military families.

Additionally, Hadley has received an “A” from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and the endorsements of both the California Small Business Association and the National Federation of Independent Business. To read more about Hadley’s legislation, please visit ad66.asmrc.org/legislation.

Hadley Bill to Improve Military Family Public School Options Signed Into Law

SACRAMENTO - Assemblyman David Hadley, R-Torrance, announced that his bill to improve the public school options available to the children of our military service families was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown over the weekend.

"I'm excited to announce that our bill to help ensure that active-duty military personnel in California can enroll their children in the right public school for them has been signed into law," said Assemblyman Hadley. "I had significant help shepherding this bill through the Legislature - in particular I would like to thank my South Bay colleagues Assemblywoman Autumn Burke and State Senator Ben Allen. I am also grateful for the extensive collaboration in the South Bay that led to this becoming law. Our military families and schools will benefit for years to come."

"As current chairman and a long-time leader of the South Bay Association of Chambers of Commerce, I have been working for over 20 years to support the Los Angeles Air Force Base and ensure that this critical installation remains in the South Bay," said Michael Jackson, Chairman of the South Bay Association of Chambers of Commerce. "AB 306 will significantly improve the lives of many of the military personnel assigned to LAAFB. I thank Governor Brown for signing the bill and I applaud Assemblyman Hadley for his leadership in supporting the base."

Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District superintendent Don Austin added, "On behalf of PVPUSD and our Board of Education, I welcome the opportunity to provide a great education to some of the school-age children of military personnel who live in neighboring Fort MacArthur. We want to do our part to support our military heroes while we also enrich our student bodies with these military kids. I thank Assemblyman Hadley and his staff for being responsive to our ideas for how best to structure AB 306 to meet the goals we all share and look forward to the next steps."

AB 306 removes the authority of California school districts of residency to deny or veto inter-district transfer requests in the cases of children of active-duty military personnel. This allows military families to concentrate their efforts on securing positions in school districts that are right for their children, without worrying about waivers or vetoes from their home school districts. AB 306 passed the Assembly with no opposition before being signed into law by the Governor.

Assemblyman Hadley Names Rosalinda Garcia 2015 South Bay Woman of the Year

SACRAMENTO - Assemblyman David Hadley, R-Torrance, today honored Rosalinda Garcia as the 2015 Woman of the Year for the 66th Assembly District.

"I am delighted to recognize Rosalinda Garcia for her amazing service in the South Bay, and I am so pleased she was able to join us in Sacramento today," said Assemblyman Hadley. "My team and I reached out to community leaders throughout the South Bay to get their input. We learned about several incredible candidates, but we could only honor one so we did some more homework. The decision was not easy because we learned about a number of incredible women in our communities. Rosalinda absolutely rose to the top of our list!"

Rosalinda Garcia is the Chief Programs Officer for the Pediatric Therapy Network (PTN). She is a parent of a former PTN client and was a member of PTN's Hearts and Hands Committee, later becoming a member of PTN's Community Advisory Board where she served for two years. In addition to her involvement with the PTN, Rosalinda is a successful businesswoman who started her own company over a decade ago.

Rosalinda currently serves as the chairperson of the Parent Advisory Board for the Southwest Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA). For the past two years, she has served on the Redondo Beach Unified School District's Strategic Planning Committee. Rosalinda is the current Financial Secretary for her local PTSA. She also volunteers her time for the Redondo Sunset Little League and the VIP program (Special Needs League) for AYSO Region 34.

Garcia was recognized on Monday at a special ceremony at the State Capitol, alongside honorees from each of the state's 80 Assembly districts. The honorees are women who have each performed exceptional acts of community service, and possess rare personal qualities that make them so special to the communities they serve.

"I am honored to receive this unexpected recognition from the Assembly," said Rosalinda Garcia. "I have always loved helping children and serving my community. It was so inspiring to meet other women from around the state who share my passion for service."

The Woman of the Year event was started in 1987 by two Assemblywomen - one Republican and one Democrat - who held the first event as a way for the Assembly to commemorate Women's History Month.

Assemblyman Hadley Co-Authors Legislation to Reinstate Felony Penalties for Date-Rape Drugs

SACRAMENTO -Assemblyman David Hadley, R-Torrance, has joined with Republican and Democratic lawmakers, law enforcement officials and crime victim advocates to support legislation reinstating a felony sentence for possession of date rape drugs. The possession of these drugs was reclassified as a misdemeanor when Proposition 47 passed in 2014.

"I am the father of three teenaged daughters, and I cannot imagine that the state of California would allow anybody to possess drugs likes this: drugs whose only real purpose is sexual assault," said Assemblyman Hadley during an interview.

Assembly Bill 46 would allow prosecutors to charge a person possessing date rape drugs with a felony, rather than a misdemeanor. Under current law, a person convicted of possessing GHB or Rohypnol is unlikely to do any jail time. If passed and signed by the Governor, AB 46 would be placed on the ballot for voter approval.

"To protect my daughters and women throughout California, it is essential that we give voters the opportunity to correct this error in Prop. 47," said Hadley.

Five Days to Go - A Personal Message from David

Dear Friends,

It's less than a week to election day! So it's a good time to consider the serious issues raised by this campaign, and to inspire you to help finish the job on November 4.

An honorable man focused on the future of California

I was born and raised in Fullerton and have lived in the South Bay almost 19 years. I am a small businessman - I founded my business 15 years ago and we have advised over 100 companies that have created thousands of jobs. Suzanne and I have been married for 22 years and we have four teenage children. Our son Jack is a cadet at the US Military Academy at West Point. Our daughters Claire, Ellen and Faith are in our local public schools. We have been very active in our community.

From the beginning, my campaign has focused on the big issues that will determine whether the next generation of Californians can thrive here:

  • Business climate. Despite California's amazing advantages, we have the highest poverty rate and the fourth-highest unemployment rate in the US. Toyota's announcement this spring that it is leaving Torrance was a body blow to the South Bay. I am a small businessman who will work to improve California's business climate so companies big and small can stay and thrive here. I have been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the voice of small business nationwide.
  • Public schools. I am a proud father of four public school kids. Our South Bay public schools are some of the best in the state - but they are at risk. The funding formula that my opponent supported in 2013 has resulted in South Bay schools being among the most poorly funded in the state. The (so-called) rainy day ballot measure my opponent supports will strip our local school districts of their cash reserves, leading to catastrophe in the next recession.

    I will fight for fair funding and local control of our schools, and I will extend that local control to the cities of Gardena and Lomita that deserve their own school districts. I will ensure that our school children are protected from sexual predators. I will fight so that merit - and not race - is rewarded in college admissions.
  • Protecting taxpayers and Proposition 13. California is the fourth most taxed state in the US. We have the highest sales tax, the highest gas tax, the highest income tax and our gas prices will go up another 15 - 76 cents per gallon on January 1 due to cap-and-trade. That money will then be wasted on high speed rail. I will protect Proposition 13, and I am proud to have been endorsed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. My opponent has received a grade of "F" from the HJTA because he has voted to weaken Proposition 13.

California is an amazing place, we will always have rich people on our coast. My vision for California is one where companies like Toyota and small businesses stay here and create strong middle-class jobs that sustain our communities. And where the graduates of California's public schools statewide are qualified for those great opportunities.

Because I have the experience, the judgment and the integrity to represent the South Bay effectively, I have been endorsed by many of our most respected local leaders. Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto, Redondo Beach Mayor Mike Gin, Gardena Mayor Paul Tanaka and many others have supported my candidacy. You can see the list at www.davidhadley.com. I am also very proud to have earned the endorsement of the Daily Breeze.

A Campaign of Platitudes, Distraction and Deception

My opponent is engaged in a largely content-free campaign. He makes claims about "working across the aisle" when 90% of his bills have no Republican co-authors. He brags about "small ball" legislation such as more HOV stickers for car pool lanes that are unobjectionable but do nothing to address the serious challenges we face.

Meanwhile, he and his allies are spending millions on outright false or intentionally deceptive ads attacking me. To set the record straight: I have never laundered funds in my business or my campaign, and my opponent knows it. I am not the "pro oil spill" candidate; I simply respect the judgment and good sense of the voters of Hermosa Beach. I am a center/right candidate, a mature and level-headed husband, father and businessman who has learned how the world works. See my endorsements above.

In perhaps their most morally bankrupt campaign tactic, my opponent's Sacramento allies are trying to deceive voters by producing "fake support" mailers and videos. These pieces purport to support my campaign, but are really designed to mischaracterize me as a right-wing nut who is going to lead the Tea Party takeover of California.

South Bay movement vs. a Sacramento Machine

I am proud to be leading a South Bay movement. We have received well over 1,300 campaign contributions. Through September 30 our campaign raised over 80% of its money from people and almost 60% of its money in the South Bay. We won the primary against the incumbent on June 3. We have won the "lawn sign war" by maybe 10:1.

The Sacramento special interest machine has run to the defense of my opponent. From the beginning he has relied on PACs, unions, the state party and other out-of-district money for over 90% of his support. He takes oil money funneled to him by the state Democratic Party, even as his campaign puts out fictional emails about how "big oil" is spending big money to defeat him. Many of you are getting 2 - 4 mail pieces a day paid for by this machine.

Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an independent, I hope you agree with me that the South Bay should choose our own representative. We don't need Sacramento to choose one for us and spend a few million dollars to rent the seat for another two years.

Conclusion

California has big problems, but even bigger opportunities. I am an honorable and effective adult who will work in good faith with the other 79 members of the State Assembly to improve our business climate, protect our South Bay schools, improve schools statewide and protect taxpayers.

The ferocity of the response my campaign has triggered means that we have struck a nerve, that we can be a powerful movement for change in California. I would greatly appreciate your support in making that change and I will not let you down.

This is going to be a close, low-turnout election - every vote will count! Please cast your ballot on or before November 4, and make sure that your family members and neighbors do too. I am grateful for your support.

Thank you,
David's Signature

BREAKING NEWS: Daily Breeze Endorses David Hadley for State Assembly

Torrance, CA - State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R - 66th district) received the endorsement of the Daily Breeze, the daily newspaper of record in the South Bay. The online endorsement appeared Monday evening, and in the print edition Tuesday morning. You can find a link to the article at the bottom of this press release.

"The state legislative races in the November election are about the economy, jobs and education," announced the Daily Breeze. "In Assembly District 66, David Hadley is our pick. A fiscal conservative... his approach is to unite the center-right and he sees this race as one that will determine whether the Democrats keep their supermajority, a reality which has stifled bipartisanship and debate in Sacramento."

This endorsement is particularly significant as it represents a shift from 2012, when the Daily Breeze endorsed Mr. Muratsuchi. David Hadley has been endorsed by both newspapers that have endorsed a candidate in this race; in September, Hadley was endorsed by the Los Angeles Register.

Businessman vs. Bureaucrat: David Hadley Responds to Baseless Muratsuchi Attack Mailers

Torrance, CA - State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R - 66th District) issued the following statement in response to baseless direct mail attack pieces from his opponent Al Muratsuchi:

Assemblyman Muratsuchi knows that his tenure in the State Assembly is coming to an end. He lost the June 3 primary to me. I have collected over 1,000 separate contributions and over $900,000 for my campaign, mostly from individuals and mostly in the South Bay, while Muratsuchi sustains his campaign with Sacramento special interest cash. Our private polling has me up by more than the margin of error with one month to go, and it must depress him to drive by all those Hadley lawn signs as he travels the South Bay.

So the Muratsuchi machine is getting desperate. Late last week his campaign accused me of having a 'record' of violating money laundering and financial disclosure rules.

This campaign should be about how we are going to improve our business climate so big companies like Toyota and small businesses can stay in California, and about how South Bay public schools should be a model for the state's many struggling schools, not punished financially by the Local Control Funding Formula. I want to contrast my defense of California taxpayers and Proposition 13 with my opponent's support of multiple tax increases and the gutting of Proposition 13.

Not only are my opponent's attacks baseless and wildly misleading, but they reveal the mind-set of a career bureaucrat, government employee and lawyer.

Muratsuchi's campaign has accused my firm of being fined for "recruiting investors without a license." The facts are these:

  • I founded D.F. Hadley & Co. in 1999. We completed our securities registration nationally and in California in 2000, and we subsequently registered in New York when I hired New York personnel.
  • In 2003 my firm was hired by children's book publisher Bendon Publishing. Bendon was small but growing, and they needed financing to continue their expansion.
  • My firm arranged a $4 million financing for Bendon by a Connecticut investment firm.
  • I did not realize that we needed a Connecticut license to arrange this transaction. When informed of the oversight, I promptly obtained the license and paid a $1,000 fine for the mistake. Nothing more to it. We have been licensed and in good standing in Connecticut ever since.
  • And here is the great news! Bendon has created over 100 additional jobs since I first helped them. Bendon had only $3 million in revenue in 2002, it will have almost $200 million in 2014, growing over 50x. Furthermore, the firm that invested $4 million in Bendon sold their investment for $16 million less than five years later. That is what I call a win/win!
  • Only a career lawyer and bureaucrat like Muratsuchi, a man who has never held a job in the private sector, would think this story a bad one. I am proud of my firm, proud of the companies I have helped build and the jobs I have helped create, and I know how hard it is to do business right.

Continuing his baseless fishing expedition, Muratsuchi's campaign also accused my firm of breaking money laundering rules. The facts are these:

  • As a licensed securities firm, D.F. Hadley & Co. has been audited by our regulators every few years.
  • After the 9/11 attacks on our country, Congress passed the USA PATRIOT ACT and increased the burden on securities firms to police money laundering. In our first audit after the 9/11 attacks, we were found to have fallen short in upgrading our procedures. We brought our performance up to standards and were fined $7,500 for these deficiencies. At no time did regulators ever suggest that any money laundering had taken place, or that there was any risk of such money laundering.
  • My firm has been in existence for over 15 years, and has been licensed for over 14 years. We have assisted over 100 companies and have completed over $2.5 billion of transactions. In this entire period, we have incurred two penalties totaling $8,500, and both took place over nine years ago. These are not material fines.

Once again, I am proud of my firm and of my track record for integrity and effective performance for our clients. I believe that my background as a small businessman, husband and father of four public school kids is exactly what California and the South Bay need in our legislature. I call on Assemblyman Muratsuchi's public supporters to encourage him to focus his campaign on the issues the South Bay cares about.

David Hadley Fundraising Surpasses $820,000 with Over $500,000 Cash-on-Hand

Torrance, CA - With less than 50 days until the election, candidate for State Assembly David Hadley (R - 66th District) has raised over $820,000, with over $500,000 in the bank. Most of Hadley's funding comes from individuals, and the majority comes from within the district.

"This campaign is not just about me versus my opponent," said Hadley to a room full of supporters last night, "This campaign is about the people of the South Bay versus a Sacramento political machine that has hijacked their representation in the State Assembly."

Mr. Hadley's opponent, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, draws over 90% of his campaign funding from PACs, unions and sitting members of the State Assembly. Approximately 95% of his funding comes from outside the district.

"My opponent does not receive hundreds of thousands of dollars in special interest money because he is a champion of the South Bay," continued Hadley, "He receives this money because he is a reliable ally of the Sacramento political class."

To join this movement for change in the South Bay, please call 310-692-4962 or visit www.davidhadley.com.

David Hadley Raises $563,000
with Over $370,000 Cash-On-Hand

State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R - 66th District) reported $374,486 "cash-on-hand" in his most recent June 30, 2014 campaign financial statement.

This information was made public by the Secretary of State last week, and illustrates a stark contrast between Hadley and his opponent, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi.

"I think it is important to note that over 87% of the donations I have received for my campaign come from individuals," said Hadley. "The majority of them live in the South Bay, and they want to see this district represented by someone who is not beholden to special interests."

In sharp contrast, Muratsuchi has financed his campaign almost entirely with special interest money. Over 89% of Muratsuchi's money comes from corporate PACs, unions and other special interests while less than 7% comes from within the district. In his most recent filing, fully 97% of Muratsuchi's money came from outside the district!

"My opponent has been in the Legislature for almost two years," Hadley noted. "If 93% of his re-election support comes from Sacramento, then who has he really been representing this whole time?"

David Hadley Deplores Racist Comments About the Chinese People

(中国版本可在这里)

Last Thursday, cable news host Bob Beckel made a racial slur when referring to people who are Chinese. Beckel went on to accuse Chinese people of criminal acts against Americans and labeled them as "the biggest single threat to the national security of the U.S."

The public response to his comments was appropriately condemning with some public figures calling for Beckel's resignation and still others demanding an apology.  Last night, Mr. Beckel apologized that "some people" were offended by his comments but did not apologize for the comments themselves. Instead, he claimed that "there are too many China apologists in this country."

 David Hadley took to Twitter last night shortly after Beckel's televised non-apology, saying "Bob Beckel's racist slurs against Chinese citizens unacceptable, and his apology is nearly as bad. #bobbeckel #sorrynotsorry."

Hadley expanded on his criticism of Bob Beckel by stating, "Mr. Beckel is anything but apologetic for the comments he made last week. I hope that the Chinese people know that Mr. Beckel does not speak for all Americans.  He surely does not speak for me."

Businessman David Hadley Beats
Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi

Torrance, CA – State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R – 66th District) captured 50.1% of the vote while incumbent Al Muratsuchi received 49.9% in yesterday’s Primary Election.

Although several Democratic candidates ran very active campaigns for Congress and State Senate that overlapped a huge majority of the 66th Assembly District, Hadley finished first despite these Democrats pushing their supporters to the polls.

“My Primary Election victory over Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi demonstrates that voters are tired of ‘business-as-usual’ politics in Sacramento,” stated Hadley.

“I have said from the time I entered this race that I will represent South Bay values, not the big union bosses, crony capitalists and special interests that are running our state right into the ground,” continued Hadley.

“Our General Election campaign starts today and we are confident we will prevail in November,” concluded Hadley.

Torrance, CA – State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R – 66th District) reported $320,264 “cash-on-hand” in his recent May 17, 2014 campaign financial statement.

Since entering the race, Hadley has raised $459,679 and over 90% of this total represents contributions from 435 “individual” donors – not groups or political action committees. In fact, the majority of his funds have come from people living within the 66th Assembly District.

Financial reports filed for 2013 and 2014 by Hadley's opponent, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, show more than 93% of his funding is from outside the district while a paltry 10% of his total contributions come from individuals.

“The dynamics of this race have not changed from previous filings,” said Hadley. “90% of my financial support is from individual donors while 90% of my opponent’s money comes from special interests that have business before the state legislature. The people of the South Bay should choose their elected representatives and not leave it to Sacramento special interests.”

State Assembly Candidate David Hadley Responds to Toyota's Announcement

Torrance, CA – State Assembly candidate and businessman David Hadley (R – 66th District) made the following statement in response to Toyota's announcement today that it is moving its U.S. headquarters out of Torrance:

“My first thought today is with the people who work for Toyota in Torrance and with their families. Toyota employs over 5,000 people in the South Bay. That figure does not include the businesses that rely on spending from Toyota and its employees, the community and non-profit organizations that Toyota has supported, and the tax dollars that Toyota and its employees have paid. The whole South Bay will feel the effects of this loss for years to come.

“My second thought is the frustration I feel with our elected officials in Sacramento who have created the climate of high costs, taxation, regulation and litigation that have pushed Toyota out of California. It is not like we haven't been warned. In 2006, Nissan moved its U.S. headquarters – and 1,300 jobs – out of Gardena for exactly the same reasons that Toyota is moving now.

“And yet, instead of doing the hard work necessary to reform our state's regulatory system and tax code and to ensure that hard-working Californians can continue to make our futures here, our elected officials in Sacramento are engaging in crony capitalism and cheap publicity stunts to distract Californians from our real challenges.

"I ask all residents of the South Bay: join my effort to reform California! I am prepared to do the hard work necessary to reform our state government. I have also spent my entire business career arranging and negotiating complex deals that have often helped companies increase their business and provide jobs for people. I want to bring my pro-jobs business experience to the Legislature. It may be too late to keep Toyota's headquarters here, but it is not too late to once again make California a great place to do business."

David Hadley Opposes SCA 5, Challenges Al Muratsuchi to Reveal Stance

Torrance, CA – State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R – 66thDistrict) announced his opposition to Senate Constitutional Amendment 5, and he challenged Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi to make his position on SCA 5 clear to South Bay voters.

“The supporters of SCA 5, including the Democrats in the State Senate who passed the measure, want to inject racial politics into public education,” said Hadley. “They are trying to overturn the verdict of the voters who voted for Proposition 209 in 1996.”

“I voted for Proposition 209 in 1996, I support it now, and I oppose SCA 5. Race has no place in determining how our students are treated by our public educational institutions.”

“Al Muratsuchi owes the voters of the South Bay his position on this important issue,” Hadley continued. “Last week, a bill sponsored by Muratsuchi was derailed by his fellow Democrats in an attempt to expose his true position on SCA 5. Al Muratsuchi needs to come out from the shadows and reveal his stance on SCA 5,” concluded Hadley.

David Hadley Shows Over
$300,000 Cash-On-Hand

Torrance, CA – State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R – 66th District) reported $301,398 “cash-on-hand” in his recent March 17, 2014 campaign financial statement.

Hadley has received funding from over 275 “individual” contributors – not groups or political action committees -- and the majority of his funds have been from people living within the 66th Assembly District.  In fact, 98% of his total amount raised has been from individual donors.

In contrast, campaign reports filed in the last fifteen months by Hadley's opponent, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, reveal that 95% of his funding is from outside the district while a mere 10% of his total contributions come from individuals.

“I believe that the people of the South Bay should choose their own elected representatives, not special interests in Sacramento,” said Hadley. “It’s important voters know that Al Muratsuchi has collected substantially all of his campaign cash from special interests that have business before the state legislature.”

As a successful small business owner, he understands what it takes to bring jobs to our community and will work to loosen the chokehold regulations have on businesses.

A Southern California native, David was born and raised in Fullerton and today serves as president of Hadley Partners, an investment banking firm in Los Angeles.

Their eldest son is a freshman at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and their three daughters currently attend local public schools. Both David and Suzanne are actively involved in the community. David has coached little league and Suzanne serves a volunteer chair for a local pre-school.

“The people of the 66th District have shown they are not happy with where the Democratic leadership in Sacramento has taken our state and our region. The overwhelming support that David has received locally shows the community is excited for his candidacy. We look forward to working with David to wage an aggressive campaign and ultimately bring some common sense to Sacramento,” Marcil concluded.

About the New Majority and its Members

Part Two: Five More Reasons
David Hadley Can Win the 66th A. D.

1. In November 2010, Republicans represented 40.6% of the turnout within the current 66th A.D., while 38.7% were Democrat and 20.7% were NPP/Other Parties. 2014 is a non-Presidential year again.

2. In November 2012, the 66th A.D. voted against Proposition 30, but Al Muratsuchi supported raising income and sales taxes on district voters.

3. In the most current FPPC filing for the last six months of 2013, David Hadley raised 270K while Muratsuchi raised 211K.

4. In addition to David Hadley’s fundraising success, the local Republican Party has raised over $100,000 and is embarking on an unprecedented voter registration/voter ID/GOTV program in 2014.

5. David Hadley is endorsed by the current or immediate past mayors of the three biggest cities in the district: Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto, Gardena Mayor Paul Tanaka and former Redondo Beach Mayors Mike Gin and Greg Hill.

David Hadley Raises Over $270,000
In Just Four Months

Torrance, CA - State Assembly candidate David Hadley (R – 66th District) will report $270,123 in contributions since he entered the race in August while ending the year with $246,506 cash-on-hand.

Hadley’s strong financial showing does not include over $100,000 cash-on-hand that the 66th Assembly District Republican Party Central Committee has available nor does the Hadley end-of-year report include any loans.

Equally important, Hadley's campaign has received funding from over 180 contributors and the majority of his total is from people living in the 66th Assembly District. In contrast, Hadley's main opponent, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, revealed on his semi-annual 6-30-13 filing that he’s almost entirely funded by special interests with over 99% of his money from out-of-district donors.

This election is about whether the South Bay will choose its representative or whether out-of-district special interests will continue to control this seat.
