As a longtime educator and community organizer, Andrea Rosenthal has experience addressing the longtime neglect of the Antelope Valley and delivering the resources the LA High Desert needs to level the playing field. When she is elected to represent the newly-created Assembly District 39, Rosenthal will focus on underserved and underinvested communities that bear the brunt of the worst health conditions as a direct result from relative environmental pollution. Rosenthal’s priority on our most disproportionately impacted communities, alongside a strong vision for safe streets, is long-needed in the Antelope Valley. Her leadership will be a critical change of pace from the former assembly representative in this area who ignored both equity and bicycling.
The newly-formed Assembly District 39 represents the eastern side of the Antelope Valley, also known as Los Angeles’ High Desert, spanning from Palmdale to Victorville. The area is a patchwork of sprawling desert communities, definitely some of the most difficult biking and walking terrain in California. But that doesn’t stop Andrea from supporting policies that make streets more walk-able and bike-able vs. car-oriented infrastructure updates. She supports the expansion of shared mobility that can help limit fuel emissions from cars on the road and aid communities in their commute where a car or reasonable public transportation is unavailable to them. This type of forward-thinking is why CalBike enthusiastically supports Andrea Rosenthal for AD 39.
The rest of her questionnaire responses are equally as impressive for their breadth and depth of knowledge. For these reasons, we are excited to see Andrea Rosenthal emerge as the prominent candidate in the AD 39 race. We look forward to seeing her provide the leadership needed to work toward safer and more sustainable transportation alternatives for all Californians.
CalBike is pleased to endorse Andrea Rosenthal for Assembly District 39. Please vote for Andrea Rosenthal on June 7, 2022.
