Assemblymember Chris Holden was reelected to represent the 41st District in the California State Assembly with 63.5 percent of the vote. Holden released the following statement:
“I want to thank the voters of the Foothill communities for reelecting me to represent them in Sacramento. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the legislature, and Governor-Elect Gavin Newsom to advance policies that benefit all Californians.
“Californians also spoke up this election on important ballot measures that will have a significant impact on the state. Last year, the legislature passed a transportation funding package to fix our transportation infrastructure and thanks to the voters, we will see much-needed improvements to make roads safer, fill potholes, and repair local streets.
“Measures to address California’s housing and homelessness crises were also on the ballot. Proposition 1, the affordable housing bond passed, but unfortunately Proposition 10 that would have allowed some form of rent control did not. I look forward to pursuing serious legislative solutions to make housing more affordable and solve homelessness.”
