FAMED RAPPER, ACTOR AND ACTIVIST ‘COMMON’ LENDS STAR-POWER TO RE-ELECT ASSEMBLYMEMBER REGGIE JONES-SAWYER
LOS ANGELES, CA -- Today, Reggie Jones-Sawyer’s re-election campaign has a new voice making the rounds connecting with constituents living in the 59th Assembly District – rapper, actor and community/political activist, Common, is reminding residents to vote by November 3rd and re-elect Jones-Sawyers to the Assembly.
In a recorded message attached below, Common shares with voters Reggie’s work of securing funding for community clinics, small businesses, and undocumented residents dealing with Covid-19 and its effect on the economy. The mega-star also reminds the community of Jones-Sawyer’s work in championing police reform and his leadership role in Sacramento as Chair of the Assembly’s Public Safety Committee.
In his message to residents of Huntington Park, South Los Angeles, Walnut Park and Florence-Firestone, Common notes, “Reggie has fought to have our state invest in education, not prisons,” adding that prison guard unions, which have been under scrutiny for placing a bullseye target on Reggie’s head in a political video ad, are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to defeat Jones-Sawyer because of his position against the building of new prisons.
Reggie Jones-Sawyer has the endorsement of U.S. Vice Presidential Candidate and California Senator, Kamala Harris, Senator Bernie Sanders, California Governor, Gavin Newsom, California nurses, firefighters and teachers associations, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, former Speaker of the Assembly Fabian Nunez, Chair of the California Legislative Latino Caucus State Senator Maria Elena Durazo, SEIU, State Assemblymembers Wendy Carillo, Cristina Garcia, Miguel Santiago, and LA City Council president, Nury Martinez and newly elected LA City Council member and former Senate Pro Tem, Kevin de Leon among others.
