San Francisco, CA: Supervisor Fiona Ma officially kicked off her campaign for Assembly with 400 supporters on hand to help walk precincts - and wish a happy birthday.

"The most important decision in my life was the day I decided to get into public service," Ma told a crowd of people the Excelsior district. "Making a difference in the lives of working families is my calling and I want to go to the Assembly to continue that work."

Ma outlined her priorities for the Assembly, "I'm going to work on universal healthcare so that everyone has access to quality health care, including the seven million uninsured Californians. I'm going to fight to make sure Prop. 98 is fully funded so that we can raise the level of education for our working families. And I'm going to make sure we hang an 'open for business' sign on California to attract good paying jobs that will help pay for these social programs.'

Several prominent speakers told the crowd how much San Francisco and Daly City need Fiona Ma in the Assembly. They talked about her experience and how their work together was making a difference in their communities. Speakers included: Bob Morales, Secretary-Treasurer of the Teamsters, Shawn Richard, Executive Director of Brothers Against Guns, Rosario Anaya, Executive Director of Mission Vocational and Language School, Supervisor Bevan Dufty, Assemblymember Mark Leno, Assemblymember Alberto Torrico, and Former Senator John L. Burton.
