DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE AND COMMUNITY LEADER KEN PARK BACKS SABRINA CERVANTES FOR ASSEMBLY

Eastvale, CA – Two-time Democratic candidate for State Assembly Ken Park announced his endorsement of Sabrina Cervantes for Assembly today. Park finished third in last week’s Primary Election for California’s 60th Assembly District.

Upon receiving Park’s support, Cervantes stated:

“I am excited to receive the endorsement of Ken Park, and I look forward to working closely with him as we continue to build the grassroots campaign that will be necessary to win in November. Ken and I share a commitment to strengthening Riverside County’s economy and improving the performance of local schools, and I am I honored to have him on our team.”

According to the latest figures released by the Riverside County Registrar of Voters, Cervantes and Park combined to garner over 53% of the vote last Tuesday. Republican incumbent Eric Linder received less than 47%. His performance is being categorized as particularly poor considering he was the only Republican candidate on the ballot, Republicans often perform better in low-turnout Primary Elections in Riverside County, and his campaign benefited from significant independent expenditure spending.

Sabrina Cervantes is a lifelong Riverside County resident, who serves as the District Director for State Assemblymember Jose Medina. In that role, Sabrina has worked with local stakeholders and community partners to help expand access to higher education, strengthen our regional economy, protect the rights of workers, improve the delivery of government services, and safeguard the natural beauty of our state.

Prior to joining Assemblymember Medina’s office, Sabrina served as a Director for the California Voter Registration Project.  Her history of community involvement includes serving on the Boards of Directors for the UCR Chicano Latino Alumni Association (CLA), and the non-profit organizations TruEvolution and Women Wonder Writers.

Sabrina holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science with a minor in Public Policy from the University of California, Riverside, and she completed an executive education program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She lives in the City of Eastvale.
