There’s good news for residents of the 47th Congressional District that resent how gerrymandering across two counties at the last moment resulted in liberal Rep. Alan Lowenthal representing the district in Washington, D.C.! Long-time Westminster resident Amy Phan West is running for Congress!
Unabashedly pro-life, committed to ending California’s shocking SeXXX Ed curriculum (officially known as “CA Healthy Youth Act”), a believer in legal immigration and fervently committed to keeping socialism away from America’s shores, West looks forward to meeting members of the community throughout the primary season to discuss issues that affect them.
“Education is critically important in equipping the next generation of Californians, which is why parental rights should be restored in public education,” said West, mother of three young sons. “Schools must stop sexualizing our children. This means teachers must be released from unions and bureaucrats and be empowered to teach our youth the fundamentals that equip them to become productive members of society.”
West also sees issues related to illegal immigration important since to the district is located just 100+ miles from the southern border.
Firmly believing in legal immigration West personally knows the hardships and sacrifices that asylum seekers go through to reach the United States. Fleeing communism after the Vietnam War, West and her family fled Vietnam in a dingy boat with little more than the clothes they were wearing. Their harrowing struggle to legally enter the United States includes waiting several long years in Thailand and Philippine refugee camps until they were granted asylum.
While Lowenthal supports open borders, illegal immigration, gun control, impeaching President Trump, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, Medicare for All and late-term abortion, small business owner West focuses her goals on returning a conservative common sense focus to the 47th district.
West will visit the Rossmoor-Los Alamitos Republican Women Federated booth during the Saturday, July 27 Cypress Community Festival. The popular Festival, with entertainment and activities planned throughout the day, takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Oak Knoll Park (on Orange Avenue between Valley View Street and Walker Street).
“With residents in both Los Angeles and Orange County, the 47th district is a vibrant and diverse community,” said West. “From one-on-one conversations to formal debates, I look forward to meeting people throughout the district and sharing how we can make improvements that will benefit everyone.”
