Democrats, donors and dignitaries gathered at a Newhall home Thursday night to kick off Christy Smith’s campaign for the 38th Assembly District at a private fundraising event. This is the Santa Clarita resident’s second run at the seat, which is currently held by Assemblyman Dante Acosta (R-Santa Clarita).
Smith, Newhall School Board President, said she knew she would run for office again as of election night in November, wanting to represent California after Donald Trump was elected and saying she knew Democrats felt America run by Trump was “not the country they signed up for.”
