Palm Springs Mayor Christy Holstege is intending to run for California State Assembly. She publicly announced her campaign Thursday morning. Holstege is seeking the District 42 seat, currently held by Chad Mayes.
"As your Assemblymember," Holstege said in a tweet, "I’ll bring a fresh, new voice to Sacramento, fight tirelessly for our fair share of state resources, achieve real results for our communities, and bring the 42nd District into the future."
Today, I announced my campaign for #AD42. I’m running to create real change for our residents and lasting progress for our region. As your Assemblymember, I will continue to act as a strong voice for all residents of the 42nd District and ensure our region has a seat at the table pic.twitter.com/rxXExsJxC7— Christy Gilbert Holstege (@christyholstege) July 29, 2021
Her revamped website, christyholstege.com, shows information regarding the run.
News Channel 3's Peter Daut is speaking with Christy Holstege today and will have an in-depth interview with her on News Channel 3 today.
News Channel 3's Peter Daut reached out to Assemblymember Chad Mayes for comment. In a text, Mayes said there was still uncertainty as to what the districts are going to look like as the Redistricting Commission is completing their work. "There could be a lot of dominoes that fall once the new lines are drawn or a lot could stay the same. If someone wants to ready themselves to serve - should opportunities arise - they need to start now."
