Perez-Allen drops out of senate race, going for Whittier City Council
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Kevin Perez-Allen announced today that he is dropping out of the race for state senate and instead is running for Whittier City Council.

Perez-Allen was one of several candidates for State Senate District 32, which encompasses Downey, Whittier and other local communities.

In a Facebook post, Perez-Allen said he is shifting his focus exclusively to Whittier.

“The breaking point came two weeks ago when I was speaking to a small group of senior citizens at a farmers market in Uptown Whittier,” Perez-Allen wrote. “A woman named Irma came up and, in an extraordinarily confident manner, said to me, ‘You would make a great Senator, but we need you here first.’ Since that time, I have weighed the options, spoken with advisors and looked into the issues. ”
