Jesse Petrilla Announces Candidacy for State Assembly

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CA – Thursday, January 3, 2013 – Rancho Santa Margarita City Council Member Jesse Petrilla announced Thursday his plans to run for the California State Assembly in the 73rd District.

Petrilla, who recently returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan with the California Army National Guard, says he would be honored to be given the privilege to fight for Californians in the state legislature.

“California is where I was born and raised, and I want to do my small part to help ensure our future is the best possible for all our families,” said Petrilla. “I look forward to meeting with the voters of South Orange County between now and the election, and would be humbled to have their support.”

Petrilla says his top issues are fighting for lower taxes, pension reform, and bringing jobs back to California.

Jesse Petrilla was elected to a four year term in November, 2010, as the top vote getter to the Rancho Santa Margarita City Council. He is a graduate of California State University, Fullerton. Jesse was married to his wife Vesna in 2009.
