“Loyal, trustworthy, and committed to the community.”

These were the words with which Mayor Rich Tran described 25th Assembly District Candidate Anna Song, in the course of endorsing her as a candidate. 

Tran went on to state, “No other Assembly candidate compares to her track record in public service. She’s the strongest advocate for our families by far. I hope that you will join me, my family, and Milpitas to vote Anna Song for California State Assembly.”

The move comes on the heels of Tran’s own withdrawal from the Assembly race as he pursues a third Mayoral term. It’s also noteworthy that Karina Dominguez, whom Tran appointed as Milpitas’ Vice Mayor, is among Song’s opponents (along with businessman Bob Brunton, Santa Clara School District Trustee Jim Canova, and Policy Advisor Alex Lee). 

Said Song, “I am so honored to have the support and encouragement of Mayor Rich Tran. His commitment to his city and community is without question, and I feel very fortunate that he has decided to support my candidacy. I promise him and the people of Milpitas that I will work hard every day to earn their trust and support in this campaign.”
