Diep for Assembly Announces Campaign Co-Chairs
Four Prominent Business, Community and Political Leaders to Co-Chair Diep’s Campaign
(Orange County, CA) – Councilman Tyler Diep announced that Ed Laird, Jim Silva, Shawn Steel and Van Tran have all signed on to Co-Chair his campaign for Assembly.
The leaders cited Diep’s principled track record, proven history of getting results and their confidence that he’ll be an effective voice for the district while in the legislature. “Tyler is a proven conservative who was recently honored by OCTax for his principled stance in opposing a massive tax hike in Westminster — we trust him to fight against higher taxes in Sacramento,” noted Former Assemblyman Van Tran, who previously represented significant portions of the district before the last round of redistricting.
Former Assemblyman Jim Silva spoke to Diep’s effectiveness, “Tyler has been an effective local elected official — as a former legislator I know we need candidates for Assembly that can be principled and move the needle.” Silva also represented much of the current 72nd district prior to terming out concurrently with redistricting.
In supporting Diep, prominent Huntington Beach businessman and Lincoln Club board member Ed Laird noted, “Tyler is a respected community leader and councilman in Westminster, and a hard-nosed campaigner who has proven his ability to win in tough campaigns by appealing to broad portions of the electorate.” Shawn Steel, an attorney and longtime Republican Party leader spoke to Diep’s effectiveness and determination on the campaign trail, “Tyler is the only candidate that we can trust to campaign tirelessly and ensure every voter is engaged — he’ll work harder than anyone during the campaign and while he fights for our shared values in Sacramento.”
Since launching his campaign only four months ago, Diep has gained consistent momentum for his candidacy. Not only has he picked up the support of the district’s two previous Assemblymembers, current 72nd district Assemblyman Travis Allen has also backed his campaign along with the Lincoln Club of Orange County, and Orange County’s top law enforcement officials, Sheriff Hutchens and DA Rackauckas. More than a dozen other state and local elected officials have also thrown their support behind Diep. Diep’s hard work and commitment has translated into successful financial support. Diep has amassed nearly $400,000 for his Assembly race — not including any personal loans or other outstanding debt.
The 72nd District includes all of Westminster, Garden Grove, Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, a portion of Huntington Beach and the unincorporated county island of Midway City. To learn more about Diep and his campaign, please visit: www.TylerDiep.com
