November 7, 2012

Today, Mark Takano, teacher and candidate for Congress in the newly redrawn 41st Congressional District, released the following statement after he was declared the winner.

October 31, 2012
On Monday, President Obama endorsed Mark Takano who is running for a seat in the U.S. Congress in California’s 41st district. With your vote, Mark will join me in Washington and fight for those in Riverside County and the Inland Empire.
This is an historic election because we have the opportunity and responsibility to re-elect President Obama and launch a successful second term that will allow the President to complete the work he’s started – to focus on jobs, economic growth and protecting social programs including Medicare, Social Security, and services for veterans and students.

"America's middle class needs Mark Takano in Congress to stand up and fight for them," said President Barack Obama. "Takano will create jobs here at home by building from the middle out, not the top down. He will protect Medicare for our seniors and education for our next generation.  Middle class families can count on Mark and he needs your support on election day."

Clinton took the stage, speaking in support of Mark Takano. "There are two reasons used to be for Mark.  First of all, he is a public school teacher and politicians make more speeches about public schools than any other subject, and a lot of them don’t know what they’re talking about.  It would be nice to put somebody there who has been in the classroom and performed, and educated our young people.

"John Tavaglione will go to Washington to embolden an extreme Republican caucus who will vote to cut Social Security and Medicare, pass tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, and hurt the Middle Class," said Patrick Boland, spokesman for Mark Takano. "We can't afford to have someone like John Tavaglione in Congress who says seniors are 'depending too much on Social Security' or that 'corporations are people' -- we need someone who will fight for the middle class, not his donors."

In the final debate with Democrat Mark Takano last night, Republican congressional candidate John Tavaglione continued to wrap his arms around Mitt Romney's failed economic policies that benefit millionaires like Tavaglione over the middle class. In addition to voicing his support for extending the Bush tax cuts for millionaires, Tavaglione agreed with Romney, saying “corporations are people” and even claimed people are depending too much on Social Security.

Takano: “I support the fast-tracking of projects to create jobs in Riverside County. Yet in this instance, Supervisor Tavaglione’s actions raise grave questions about who influences his decisions. Voters understand that you don’t change the direction of Congress, and put the needs of middle class families back on the agenda, by sending another pay-to-play politician to Washington.”

Takano: "I’ll be a Representative who works on behalf of every single person in my district, even those Mitt Romney and his billionaire backers insult when they think no one is looking.

Families that work long hours to make ends meet, young people attending college, older Americans looking for security in their retirement years, and the soldiers fighting to protect our nation aren’t dependent victims looking for a handout, they’re proud Americans doing their part to keep our nation moving forward."

Takano: "My opponent may be proud to stand with a party that has committed itself to breaking one of America’s most sacred promises. I’m proud to oppose that agenda, and to stand firmly on the side of Riverside County families."
