The California State Senate seat for District 30 was vacated by Democrat Holly Mitchell, who resigned to take a seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. The southern area of this district is within the danger zone of risk from a possible large HF release at the Torrance refinery.
Seven candidates are running in a special election to fill that seat. TRAA sent out a questionnaire to all candidates and only one responded, Sydney Kamlager. In her response, Kamlager stated: “She hadn’t had an opportunity to do anything to support the removal of HF, that she was opposed to the use of HF and favored its removal and would be willing to do things in the future citing her strong environmental record.”
Based on her response and the lack of response by the other candidates we encourage residence of the 30th District to vote for Sydney Kamlager for State Senator for Senate District 30.
