The following is a news release from the campaign of Matthew Harper for Assembly.

Huntington Beach Councilman Matthew Harper declared his candidacy today for the California State Assembly, 72nd District.

“Councilman Matthew Harper has an outstanding record as a defender of the taxpayer,” said Huntington Beach Mayor Pro Tem Don Hansen.

Prior to his service on the Huntington Beach City Council, Matthew Harper served three terms on the Board of Trustees for the Huntington Beach Union High School District where he established himself as a consistent vote for fiscal responsibility. The HBUHSD includes Huntington Beach, most of Westminster, most of Fountain Valley, Midway City, Sunset Beach and a portion of Garden Grove.

Councilman Matthew Harper is a graduate of Huntington Beach High School and has resided in Huntington Beach or Westminster since age 5. As a boy, Harper played in Westminster Little League, participated in Westminster Boy Scout Troop #314 and attended Westminster School District schools. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Public Policy & Management from the University of Southern California.

Prior to his work at the County of Orange, Harper worked as a Realtor® for Star Real Estate and now holds a broker license from the California Department of Real Estate. Harper now works for the County of Orange and is former Deputy Chief of Staff to Orange County Supervisor Janet Nguyen.

With no incumbent candidate, Councilman Harper enters the race with many distinct advantages. On the Board of Trustees for the HBUHSD, Harper represented over 50% of those voting within the newly drawn 72nd Assembly District. The City of Huntington Beach alone makes up almost a quarter of the new district. Additionally, Harper is a lifelong Republican who has served in leadership positions within the Republican Party and with Republican volunteer organizations. Harper has been elected four times to serve on the Republican Party of Orange County Central Committee, and is a past state chairman for the Young Republican Federation of California.

The California Citizens Redistricting Commission created the new 72nd Assembly District with territory from Huntington Beach, Garden Grove, Westminster, Fountain Valley, Seal Beach, Santa Ana, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, Midway City and Sunset Beach.
