Assemblyman Cunningham and Addis’ statements on the race

November 11, 2020

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham appears to have won reelection for his California Assembly District 35 seat against challenger Dawn Addis, 55.1 percent to 44.9 percent.

Statement from Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham

I am honored that the voters have elected me to a third term to represent them in the state Assembly — in the highest turnout election in history. I will continue to work hard for them, to solve problems, and to be an independent voice for the Central Coast and the people of California.

I want to thank my wife and kids for their support and good humor. I want to thank my campaign team for securing this win. I want to thank our awesome volunteers and supporters that got our message out and got folks out to vote.

We have a lot of work left to do. I am excited to get back to it.

Statement from Dawn Addis

Votes are still being counted, but it is very likely that this election has not gone our way. I wish Assemblymember Cunningham the very best for the term ahead of him.

As a teacher, City Councilmember, and mother, I ran for State Assembly to bring my experience to tackling the tough challenges we’re facing. Wildfires are getting worse, housing is becoming less affordable, and workers and local businesses are hurting. I will not be in the State Assembly next year, but that will not stop my work on these and other issues.

As citizens, we can help our leaders and we can hold them accountable.

I am very proud of the campaign we ran and grateful to the more than 99,000 voters who voted for me. Thanks to the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and supporters, we sent a message that a more progressive Central Coast is on the rise. I am deeply grateful to everyone who put their time, effort, and support behind me. I especially want to thank my family for supporting me and being with me every step of the way.

This is not the end, but the beginning. Progress comes to those who fight for it.

It is great news that Addis’s negative campaigning did not pay off and Cunningham won! At least Addis had the good sense to concede the election when she realized she could not win. Now if only another politician who also embraced negativity on a national level would follow her lead and concede…

All politics are local and believe the central coast voters firmly sent a message that they dont like or want a “more progressive central coast”. Who wants to be like San Fran or L.A.? Lotta good its done there…

Congratulations Mr. Cunningham, I appreciate the job you’ve done and look forward to seeing you continue to represent our district. Nice job!!

Nice job Jordan Cunningham. Your a good man and will do well representing this district. So glad we don’t have listen to her annoying voice and deceitful adds anymore. Now Addis will be able to go home and watch the grass grow. Oops, that could mean something else to her.

Maybe Addis should reach out to Gov Gruesome for the vacated Adam Hill Supervisor seat, she’s already has a funding source in Helios Dayspring, that seat would fit her perfectly!!!

….and SLO council races results are……

How can it take this long?
