Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster Endorses Nanette Barragán in CA-44 Primary
SAN PEDRO, CA – Today, Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster of New Hampshire, endorsed Nanette Barrágan for Congress in California’s 44thDistrict.
“Congresswoman Kuster is a well-known advocate for public education, improved access to healthcare, small business growth, and job creation, that is why I am so honored to have her support,” said Barrágan. “Our shared values of giving every American a fair shot and chance to be successful, is the kind of representation District 44 needs in Washington, and I look forward to working with Congresswoman Kuster in Congress.”
Prior to being elected in 2012, Representative Kuster advocated for children and families as an adoption attorney for 25 years. She cites the dedication to fight for working families as a principle shared with Nanette.
“I know what it takes to be an effective Member of Congress and I know what we need in Washington to deliver results for middle class families. I can tell you with no uncertainty that Nanette Barragán is the right choice for California’s 44th District,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “I am committed to fighting in Congress for the values Nanette and I share: strengthening public education, making healthcare more affordable and accessible, supporting our small businesses, and creating jobs. We need leaders like Nanette working for our families in Congress, and I look forward to welcoming her to the fight.”
Barragán, the daughter of immigrants from Mexico, grew up in Carson and the surrounding areas where she attended Stephen M. White Middle School, learned to swim at Carson Pool, and studied at the Carson Library. She worked her way through UCLA and law school at USC before becoming a long-time advocate for the environment and the first elected Latina member of the Hermosa Beach City Council. She was also a leader in the fight against Measure O, a ballot measure that would have allowed oil companies to drill for oil in the Santa Monica Bay.
