    Reelect State Assemblymember Miguel Santiago to keep AD-54 on the right track for progress.

     

     

    The Position


    State assemblymembers represent and advocate for the needs of their district constituents at the California State Capitol. They are responsible for creating, debating, and voting on legislation that addresses issues within their district.

    The California State Assembly has 80 districts. Each represents a population of at least 465,000 Californians. Representatives are elected to the Assembly for a two-year term. Every two years, all 80 seats are subject to election. Members elected before 2012 are restricted to three two-year terms (six years) in the Assembly. Those elected in or after 2012 are allowed to serve 12 years total across both the state Senate or the Assembly. This term, Democrats currently hold a two-thirds supermajority of 56 seats in the California State Assembly, while Republicans hold 19 seats. One seat is held by an Independent and four seats are currently vacant.

     

     

     

     

    The District


    California’s 54th Assembly District includes parts of Los Angeles County. Democrats typically hold this district. Of the registered voters in this district, 10% are Republican and 58% are Democrat, and the district’s demographic breakdown is 54% Latino, 24% Asian, and 8% Black. The most recent election results show that AD-54 voted for Biden for president in 2020 by 59 points and Newsom for governor in 2018 by 66 points.

     

     

     

     

    The Race


    Incumbent Assemblymember Santiago is running unchallenged. Santiago’s campaign has raised over $886,000 and is not funded by fossil fuel or real estate interests, but he has received donations from police and corporate groups.

     

     

     

     

    The Recommendation


    Assm. Santiago, first elected to represent the district in November 2014, is from Los Angeles. According to campaign materials, Assm. Santiago is running for reelection to continue expanding access to higher education and education, and he is fighting for immigrant rights. Assm. Santiago won his 2020 reelection against a Democratic challenger by 25.8 points.

    Assm. Santiago’s priorities for AD-54 this year have included seven bills about health care, labor, and criminal justice, of which four have successfully passed the Assembly. Three have passed the Senate and been signed into law. He currently holds leadership roles on two committees: the Assembly Communications and Conveyance and Assembly Select Committee on Los Angeles County Homelessness. He scores 96 out of 100 on Courage Score, our annual analysis of legislators’ progressive voting records. Based on our Courage Score analysis, Assm. Santiago has supported the most progressive bills that made it to a vote.

    Prior to his election to the State Assembly, Assm. Santiago was involved in community organizing, and worked on expanding affordable health care and housing. He is a longtime supporter of education, just immigration policies, and economic development.

    Assm. Santiago has the endorsement of many progressive groups in the district and statewide, including Los Angeles Federation of Labor, California Environmental Voters, Planned Parenthood, and Our Revolution. Based on our analysis, Assm. Santago’s track record and policy positions demonstrate that he will be a progressive champion for the constituents of AD-54 and will continue to govern effectively in the best interest of this diverse district.
