Another strong fundraising report puts Marc Berman 

in front in the race for the 24th Assembly District 



January 4, 2016

With another strong fundraising period under his belt, Palo Alto City Councilmember Marc Berman continues to stand out as a leader in the race to represent the 24th Assembly District in Sacramento.

Berman closes out 2015 with more than a quarter of a million dollars on-hand for his campaign to succeed termed-out incumbent Assemblymember Rich Gordon. That number includes contributions from more than 360 donors, including from all twelve of the larger cities in the district.

“I’m excited and humbled by the support I’ve earned from my community,” Berman said. “I’m honored for every dollar, every word of encouragement, and every endorsement I’ve received. I’m thrilled to be starting 2016 with this groundswell of support behind me.” 

Elected to the Palo Alto City Council in 2012, Marc has worked to expand government transparency, strengthen public safety and level the playing field for local residents. As Development Director at the Silicon Valley Education Foundation, he worked to close the achievement gap in Silicon Valley’s public schools through innovative partnerships that provide programs and resources to help students reach their full potential in the critical areas of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The 24th Assembly District consists of the cities of Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Woodside, Portola Valley, Atherton, Menlo Park, Half Moon Bay and portions of Cupertino and the San Mateo County Coast.
