San Gabriel Valley — In January 2021, residents across California will be able to participate in Assembly Democratic Elections to help decide the direction of the California Democratic Party. In Assembly District 49, which includes large portions of the west San Gabriel Valley, 14 diverse community leaders have come together and formed the San Gabriel Valley Justice Democrats.
