There is a significant error in today’s Stockton Record profile about the candidates running in Assembly District 13. The Record reports that Kathy Miller is supported by a Super-PAC funded by Big Oil.
In fact, Kathy’s opponent, Carlos Villapudua, is being funded by the Big Oil Super-PAC to the tune of $2 million dollars, and Big Oil is running a campaign to distort Kathy Miller’s record.
“It is disheartening that Big Oil is spending millions of dollars in this Assembly race in an attempt to buy this seat for their candidate, Carlos Villapudua,” said Democrat Kathy Miller. “The sad truth is that Big Oil wants Carlos to win so they can use water from our Delta for fracking.”
Kathy Miller is a leader in protecting the Delta, having served as Chair of Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy and representing Stockton on the Delta Protection Commission.
“Big Oil doesn’t like the fact that I have a long record fighting for our Delta to ensure that water supplies are clean and safe for our communities, families and farms,” Miller said. “I think the voters are smart enough to figure out who really represents their interests in this race.”
Kathy Miller is the only candidate endorsed by the California League of Conservation Voters, California Nurses Association, California Federation of Teachers and the California Democratic Party.
