ORCUTT, Calif. - Both Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham and Councilwoman Dawn Addis were relaxed and all smiles on Tuesday night following a day of voting in the California primary.

The two assembly candidates have similar issues they plan to tackle if they win the 35th district.

They both say the plan to address the impact of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power plant closure, jobs, and the economy.

Cunningham says he feels confident for re-election this November. If he wins, he says this round he plans to focus on career technical education to make sure kids have a pathway to skilled trades to service the Central Coast infrastructure needs.

“We live in one of the most beautiful places in the country, but it's getting hard for people to afford. I want to make sure to advocate for policies that are not increasing the cost of living," Cunningham said.

Cunningham also hopes to increase the housing supply by building more. He wants to pass a bill to cut taxes to give new builders a break on solar panel cost.

Legislation to combat human trafficking has been a tentpole of Cunningham's tenure in the assembly, but he says there is more work to be done.

"I think we have done a lot of work fighting human trafficking and we are going to continue to do that work,” said Cunningham.

This is Addis' first time running for Assembly. She says she wants to work closely with the community and make sure they have access to their state assembly representative.

“We really need a representative that is going to work as hard as the people of the Central Coast to make sure we have economic development, housing for all generations, affordable housing and workforce housing. Specifically, we really need to address the economic issues,” said Addis.

Addis said if she wins she plans to focus on climate change and use her power of the state as a way to shield California and the Central Coast from federal laws against women's reproductive health care.

Both parties plan to campaign to build the economy and increase jobs. But on Tuesday night they were relaxing and looking ahead to November.
