California State Controller

Shawn Kumagai has demonstrated both his ability to deliver results during his tenure as a city councilmember as well his responsiveness to constituents as a district director for a sitting Assemblywoman, he will hit the ground running as the AD20 representative for the families of Alameda County.  I am pleased to endorse him.

Shawn embodies sacrifice and service, from serving our nation in the Navy and a Democratic Assembly district director to making history as his city’s first LGBTQ+ councilmember and vice mayor. He is the best prepared candidate to go to Sacramento and fight to make life more affordable for all Californians, and he has my full support.

Shawn Kumagai is a dedicated and talented public servant who has honorably served our nation for two decades in the Navy and his community. I look forward to working with Shawn as my counterpart in Sacramento to ensure that we are serving those who served. Shawn would make history as the first LGBTQ member of the Assembly from this district, he’s the only candidate in the race with elected experience, and the only AAPI candidate running to represent this AAPI-plurality district. I am proud to endorse Shawn Kumagai.
