Assembly District 65 includes the portion of western Anaheim that’s basically west of Euclid and north of Katella. It’s represented by Democrat Sharon Quirk-Silva, the former Fullerton councilmember who upset incumbent Republican Assemblyman Chris Norby in 2012. Among other votes she cast in her first year, Quirk-Silva voted to abolish the state’s Enterprise Zone program, including Anaheim’s.
In her first re-election run, she faces an energetic Republican opponent in Young Kim, a staffer for Rep. Ed Royce, who has been representing much of what is AD65 since 1982 (in the state Senate and since 1992 in Congress).
Young Kim has done quite a job clearing the field on the GP side and united the party behind her. Her fundraising is strong, she works hard, has an attractive personality and brings into play elements the run-of-the-mill GP candidate ordinarily doesn’t. AD65 will be battleground in November.
She’s holding a fundraising event this February 13 in Fullerton from 5:30 – 7:3-0 p.m. at the Hotel Fullerton:
