Assembly District 38
No endorsement

No recommendation Both candidates are Republicans – Lucie LaPointe Volotsky, Suzette M. Valladares.

VC Star article here.

From the Progressive Voters Guide: “In the primary, Republican challenger Suzette Martinez Valladares led Republican challenger Lucie Lapointe Volotzky by a margin of 14.2 percent. Neither campaign has pledged to refuse corporate PAC, fossil fuel, or police money. Valladares’s campaign has raised $237,213.00, including contributions from corporate and police interest groups. Volotzky has raised much less, with $7,084.00, mostly from individuals.

About the Candidates: “Neither candidate has served in office. Valladares’s priorities for this year, other than espousing broadly Republican values, are difficult to ascertain, given the lack of a developed platform. Due to a lack of campaign materials, it is also not possible to ascertain Volotzky’s priorities for the district. Based on their campaign materials, both candidates are likely to provide no progressive leadership in office.

Note: There are zero endorsements by any of the groups we normally follow, including environmental.
