Assemblymember Tony Thurmond who’s been serving the district and the state for over 10 years in elected office endorses Rochelle Pardue-Okimoto for the State Assembly. As a former school board member and member of the Assembly Committee on Education, he has been a champion for kids and education in West Contra Costa and California.
“I am officially endorsing Rochelle Pardue-Okimoto in her bid for my Assembly seat,” said Assemblymember Tony Thurmond. "Its been an honor to work along side Rochelle, a labor leader and activist, in our ongoing efforts to prevent the closure of hospitals that provide critical services to the people of the 15th Assembly District. An experienced nurse who will always put patients first, a community leader fighting for criminal justice reform and a true progressive fighting for working families every day make her the best candidate in this race."
