CFT is enthusiastically supporting California government teacher Andra Hoffman for the state Assembly in District 45 in the San Fernando Valley. Hoffman’s hands-on classroom experience is needed in the state Legislature.
Hoffman grew up in the assembly district and is a graduate of CSU Northridge. She teaches at Glendale College and previously ran a program there assisting adults to reenter the workforce.
The incumbent, Bob Blumenfield, will assume his seat on the Los Angeles City Council on July 1, 2013. The governor is expected to call a special election in the district in early September. The district includes Calabasas, Canoga Park, Chatsworth, Encino, Northridge, West Hills, Woodland Hills, and part of Los Angeles.
