Ron Calderon Announces for South Valley District

Assemblyman Ron Calderon, from a family that has occupied elected offices from around Montebello for seemingly ever, announced he's running for Congress in a new, south San Gabriel Valley district that would include Montebello, Whittier, Pico Rivera, Norwalk, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, La Mirada, and Bellflower.

The area is currently split between districts represented by Linda Sanchez and Grace Napolitano. Odds are good a Latino Democrat will represent this district after the election.
