Newhall School District Board President Christy Smith Endorses Bryan Caforio
Commends Caforio’s Focus on Putting Local Community First
Santa Clarita, Calif. – Today, Christy Smith, President of the Newhall School District Board and candidate for the 38th Assembly District, endorsed Bryan Caforio to represent California’s 25th Congressional District. Last week, Caforio earned the endorsement of Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and he previously announced the endorsements of twenty-five elected and appointed officials in the district.
“As a lifelong resident of the Santa Clarita Valley, I am proud to support Bryan because he will always put the residents of the 25th District first,” said Christy Smith. “At a time when Washington politicians are putting our health care at risk, slashing investments in education, and threatening Social Security and Medicare, we can count on Bryan to stand up to their out-of-touch agenda and fight for the hard-working families in our community.”
Caforio said of the endorsement, “Christy has proven herself time and again to be a remarkable leader in the Santa Clarita Valley. I’m excited to work with her as we focus on issues vital to our community’s success that are currently neglected by our corporate representatives in Washington.”
The son of two public school teachers, Caforio was born and raised in Southern California, attended UCLA and Yale Law School, worked for a United States federal judge, and practices as an attorney taking on some of the world’s biggest banks and corporations. Bryan lives in Santa Clarita with his wife Lisa, who serves as a Deputy City Attorney at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
California’s 25th Congressional District covers northern Los Angeles County and part of Ventura County, including the Santa Clarita Valley, Antelope Valley, and Simi Valley. Hillary Clinton won the district by more than six points in 2016, registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans, and the district is majority-minority. The district is now considered a “toss-up” and is held by Tea Party Republican Steve Knight, whom national Republicans have publicly identified as one of their most vulnerable incumbents.
