State Assembly candidate and Palo Alto City Councilmember Marc Berman has earned the endorsement of Assemblymember Rob Bonta in his campaign for the 24th Assembly District.

“Marc is a dynamic leader with an impressive combination of skills and experience working on important issues like education and infrastructure improvements. He will be a great addition to the State Assembly,” said Assemblymember Bonta. “I look forward to working with Marc to solve the regional economic, transportation, and environmental challenges facing the Bay Area.”

“Assemblymember Bonta is a leader on education, budget, and health care issues, and it’s an honor to have his support,” said Berman. “The major challenges facing the Bay Area - affordability, traffic, economic inequality - can only be solved if our region’s elected officials work collaboratively in Sacramento and that is exactly what I’ll do if elected.”
