San Bernardino County Supervisor James Ramos officially declared his candidacy Friday, Feb. 9, for the Inland state Assembly seat held by Rancho Cucamonga Republican Marc Steinorth.
“As a tribal leader, a business owner, a community leader and as a county supervisor, I have worked to make it a better place – targeting corruption and bringing transparency to the county board while balancing the budget and creating a reserve,” Ramos, a Democrat, said in a news release.
“My focus will continue to be on the issues that matter to the Inland Empire – economic development, tackling homelessness, improving education and working with public safety to keep our communities safe.”
Ramos, who formed an Assembly campaign committee last month, is running in California’s 40th Assembly District, which includes most of Rancho Cucamonga and San Bernardino in addition to Highland, Loma Linda and Redlands.
