Who Will Win The 41st Assembly District?

Who will win the 41st Assembly District?

Republican Donna Lowe and Democrat Chris Holden are vying for the 41st Assembly seat in November

A Tea Party member, Lowe says California's first open primary worked in her favor.

"Fiscally conservative Democrats will vote republican," she speculated of the upcoming election.

Of her opponent, she said: "[Chris Holden] is the epitome of what is wrong with California. He does not believe free market creates jobs.”

A Pasadena Councilman for 25 years, Holden declined to comment on Lowe, but said: “I'm looking forward to a debate on the issues and focusing on solutions that work for California.”

Lowe, who is a Claremont-based businesswoman, said she expected Democrats to do better in the primary election Tuesday, given that those three candidates had raised significantly more money than she and the other Republican candidate Ed Colton. (.)

Holden brought in 29.6 percent of the votes and Lowe 23.2 percent Tuesday. had 17.8 percent, 15.6 percent and 13.8 percent.

One difference in the two candidates that may sway voters is their stance on the 710 Tunnel.

“I am opposed to eminent domain that would seize the necessary property and an underground tunnel,” Lowe said Wednesday.

Holden, on the other hand, told Patch last month: “I think that exploring through the EIR the environmental feasibility of a tunnel makes a lot of sense. You have tunnels that exist all over the world, and in Europe where you have ancient cities, you still have tunnels in those areas under much more challenging terrain.”

South Pasadena's Mayor Cacciotti told Patch of the November election: "There’s a lot of frustration and anger among voters—anything is possible."

The 41st District extends south to north from South Pasadena to Altadena, then east to foothill towns out the way to San Dimas.

Larry, It's when the "govt" needs your land to develop something and they basically take it from you. You get paid but not market value.

Pray the person who gets elected supports small business and the creation jobs via the private sector. It's been proven (quite recently) that Keynesian economics causes more damage than good and creates a government dependent populace.

Why does the Republican candidate, a member of the Tea Party, look like a blonde Sarah Palin in this picture?
