Close race between Cunningham and Addis for assembly

November 4, 2020

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham and Morro Bay Councilwoman Dawn Addis


One of the close races CalCoastNews is following on the Central Coast is that for California Assembly District 35. The district includes all of San Luis Obispo County and the cities of Santa Maria, Guadalupe and Lompoc in Santa Barbara County.

Republican Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham is the incumbent and his challenger is Democrat Dawn Addis.

Cunningham, an attorney and former prosecutor, currently leads 52 to 48 percent.

Addis, a Morro Bay City Councilwoman and progressive activist, is currently within 6,523 votes of Cunningham. The race is still too close to call.

On the night of the March 3 primary election, Cunningham led Addis 63 to 37 percent. However, by the end of March, Cunningham’s lead was whittled down to 56 to 44 percent.

Addis is an empty skirt with a great deal of democratic party $$$ behind her. Gotta love those activist types.

I am a State of California employee and had an issue with getting paid for some overtime. After months of dealing with my local HR office and the State Controllers office, I contacted Jordan Cunningham’s office. His staff immediately got required documentation and release authorization from me. Their liaison contacted the State Controller’s office on my behalf and I received my overtime pay in 4 days. The State Controllers office was over 4 months behind in investigating payroll mistakes. I found Mr. Cunningham’s staff to be courteous, and very engaged in helping a constituent. He has and will always get my vote.

The Addis campaign was the first to go negative and they went negative hard in a desperate attempt to attack Cunningham. Without even looking at the issues, that made it clear that Addis was not deserving of our support.

Just what we need…another progressive leftist Democrat added to the ONE PARTY RULE in

Sacramento with the election of Dawn Addis! Go Jordan!

“by the end of March, Cunningham’s lead was whittled down to 56 to 44 percent.” I guess they expect ballot counting to be really, really slow.
