Congresswoman Judy Chu is running for election in the 27th Congressional District, continuing her service to the communities of the San Gabriel Valley.
"I have had the honor of serving the residents of the San Gabriel Valley, having been elected 11 times over the past 26 years, from my days on the Garvey School District Board of Education to serving as Mayor on the Monterey Park City Council, then the California State Assembly, the Board of Equalization and now in Congress," said Chu. "I look forward to continuing to serve many of the same cities I represented in the State Assembly. And I will work hard to serve the new areas in the 27th Congressional district to address their specific needs and concerns."
On the Board of Equalization, Chu represented all of Los Angeles County, including the San Gabriel Valley. In the State Assembly, Chu's district encompassed many of the cities now redistricted into the 27th Congressional District, such as Monterey Park, Alhambra, Rosemead, San Gabriel, and San Marino.
Congresswoman Chu has had a long and distinguished record of public service. Since being elected to Congress, Rep. Chu has continued to work hard to help Americans emerge from the recession, co-sponsoring a bill that would extend and expand the enormously successful Jobs NOW program, which used federal stimulus funds to subsidize jobs at the local level and resulted in more than 11,000 jobs in Los Angeles County alone. As a Member of the House Small Business Committee, she brought federal resources to her district to help stimulate the local economy, and sponsored small business workshops and job fairs to provide critical resources to hundreds of constituents.
In addition, Rep. Chu has used her extensive experience as a legislator and educator to help improve our nation's education system, helping pass a landmark college affordability bill to boost federal college grants and keep student loan interest rates low. She has also unveiled a new framework for awarding School Improvement Grants called Strengthening Our Schools (SOS), which provides a more holistic and research-based alternative to the more punitive and overly restrictive guidelines currently used.
The new 27th Congressional District is comprised of most of the West San Gabriel Valley and the Foothills, including all or part of the communities of Monterey Park, Rosemead, Alhambra, San Gabriel, San Marino, Temple City, Pasadena, Arcadia, Altadena, Sierra Madre, Monrovia, Bradbury, Glendora, Claremont, and north Upland.
