The Latino Coalition of Los Angeles PAC has endorsed Democratic candidate Kevin Perez-Allen in next year’s race for the open seat in State Senate District 32.

“I am humbled and honored to have received the endorsement of the Latino Coalition of Los Angeles,” Perez-Allen said in a statement. “Their work in mobilizing Latino and Hispanic communities to engage in civic duties, and their advocacy for the rights of a parent to choose the best school for their children, is crucial to the future of our state and the 32nd district.”

“LCLA PAC wants to make California stronger for working class families and all residents,” said Raul Claros, founder and president of the Latino Coalition of Los Angeles. “We can do this by electing Kevin to the California State Legislature next year.

“Kevin has always done what is right for working class families – he is a passionate, effective champion for his community.”

Other announced or presumed Senate candidates include Downey mayor Mario Guerra; Hacienda-La Puente school board member Jay Chen; businessman Noel Jaimes; and former Assembly members Tom Calderon, Tony Mendoza and Sally Havice.

The 32nd senate district encompasses portions of Artesia, Bellflower, Buena Park, Cerritos, Commerce, Downey, Hacienda Heights, Hawaiian Gardens, La Habra Heights, La Mirada, Lakewood, Los Nietos, Montebello, Norwalk, Pico Rivera, Santa Fe Springs, South Whittier and Whittier.
