Mayor Enters the Race in 49th Assembly District

January 22, 1998

Mayor Barbara Messina announced Wednesday that she is entering the race in the 49th Assembly District, which encompasses her city and a handful of surrounding communities.

Messina, 57, a Democrat, is serving her third term as mayor and is known for her lobbying efforts in Washington and Sacramento to get the proposed Long Beach Freeway extension built--a project she says will reduce traffic through her city.

Other candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for the seat, now held by Diane Martinez (D-Monterey Park), include Martinez's sister, Susan, and Monterey Park City Councilwoman Judy Chu.
