Melissa Fox is a passionate and hard-working advocate for families, the middle class, small business, schools, jobs and economic growth. She is an Orange County native, a wife and mother, a dedicated community leader, and a litigator who knows what it takes to win.
Melissa is running a dynamic campaign that harnesses populist anger at legislators in Sacramento who have slashed education spending, raised taxes and fees on middle class voters, and done nothing to bring jobs and money back into her district.
This is a district where the largest employer used to be the El Toro Marine Base. Now the largest employer is UC Irvine, where 9,000 faculty and employees have been forced to take pay cuts and 30,000 students have seen their fees increase by 32%.
President Obama won the 70th Assembly District by 8,721 votes.
