The State is going to have to change the way it does business and think outside the box to create jobs and grow the economy. And that’s why we need him in Sacramento.” Mayor Margie Rice – Westminster

My campaign is firing on all cylinders right now,” said Harper. “Huntington Beach, Westminster, Garden Grove and Fountain Valley collectively represent the home to more than two-thirds of the voters of the 72nd Assembly District. To have the support of the highest elected officials from these cities means a lot to my campaign. They have put their faith in me to go to Sacramento and fight for them and I won’t let them down.”
