The 27th district sits completely within the northwest corner of LA County, east of Ventura County, south of Kern County. It incorporates Palmdale, Lancaster, Santa Clarita, and Antelope Valley. Democratic turnout has been low in recent elections, including this year’s primary.

 

About Our Candidate: George Whitesides 

George Whitesides understands the needs of the Antelope Valley, the San Fernando Valley, and Santa Clarita, as a board member of the Antelope Valley Economic Development and Growth Enterprise (AV EDGE). The Antelope Valley Union High School District recognized him with the Partners in Educational Excellence Award for his work supporting underprivileged students.

 

Over the past 20 years, George has served as chief of staff for NASA during the Obama administration, created hundreds of good-paying jobs in the Antelope Valley as Virgin Galactic’s first CEO, and supported front-line responders through his founding of Megafire Action, an organization dedicated to solving our nation’s wildfire crisis. His record stands in stark contrast to that of MAGA Mike Garcia, a stealthy MAGA Republican who has consistently failed to prioritize the interests and needs of communities in this Democratic-leaning district.

 

About the District 

Democrat Katie Hill won the district in 2018’s Blue Wave. After she resigned her seat, MAGA Republican Mike Garcia won the special and regular elections in 2020, garnering both Republican and Democratic votes by misrepresenting his positions and right-wing voting record.
