California Senator Fran Pavley has picked up competition for the California 27th District seat.
Pavley is a Democrat, Zink a Republican. Democrats have a 5.8 percent registration advantage in the district.
“Because of the State’s fiscal mismanagement, thousands of felons some of whom have committed serious crimes including illegal possession of assault weapons, illicit drugs, and not to mention unconscionable identity theft will be released back into our communities before they complete their sentences,” Zink said in a news release. “This puts our families at more risk of crime. You deserve to have elected officials dedicated to protecting your communities – something I’ve done for the last 7 years.”
The district includes portions of the western San Fernando Valley including Agoura Hills, Westlake Village and Calabasas, as well as the eastern Ventura County communities of Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and Simi Valley.
