IRVINE, CA – In a reflection of her commitment to combatting gun violence and enacting gun safety measures, today Irvine City Councilmember Melissa Fox earned the endorsement of the 25 California Chapters of Brady United Against Gun Violence in her campaign for California’s 68th Assembly District due to her strong support for gun reform laws that reduce firearm injuries and deaths.
In a statement released with the announced endorsement, Brady Orange County Chapter President Sandy Wilder commented:
“We are excited to endorse Melissa Fox for Assembly because she is a strong advocate and ally, united with Brady against gun violence. She has proven to put the safety of our communities first and will stand up to the gun lobby in Sacramento and fight for common-sense gun safety measures. We can count on her to hold bad apple dealers accountable, enforce background checks and close loopholes to ensure we keep dangerous firearms off the street.”
Last week, Fox’s campaign announced a significant fundraising effort, with $222,733 raised in the second half of 2019, more than was raised by Republican incumbent Assemblymember Steven Choi. She starts 2020 with over $200,000 cash on hand
