Former District Attorney Steve Cooley Endorses Chen for Assembly
Yorba Linda –Conservative Republican candidate Phillip Chen announced receiving the endorsement of former District Attorney Steve Cooley in his campaign for State Assembly today. Cooley served as the long term District Attorney for Los Angeles County and was well-known for his work prosecuting gangs and political corruption during his term.
“Phillip is exactly the type of individual we need in Sacramento,” said Cooley. “His background as a reserve Deputy Sheriff and as an educator gives him the right combination of experience we want in our legislators. Phillip knows how to keep families safe and give our children the education they need. That’s why voters should send him to the State Assembly.”
Phillip Chen is the leading candidate in the 55th district. In addition to serving as a reserve Sheriff Deputy, Phillip is an elected member of the Walnut Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees, a professor at USC, a small business owner, and a healthcare advisor to Supervisor Mike Antonovich. The 55th Assembly District is currently represented by Assemblyman Curt Hagman who is prohibited from running again because of term limits.
