San Fernando Valley businessman Edward Headington announced Wednesday he is running for the Democratic nomination for the 38th Assembly District.

In a landscape dominated by Republicans, the married Granada Hills father of one said he sees himself as a “pragmatic problem-solver,” as opposed to either a Democrat or Republican.

“I don’t think there’s a Democrat way or a Republican way on how to clean streets or fix potholes,” he said in a phone interview.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Headington is a longtime San Fernando Valley resident and owner of his own media company, Headington Media Group.

He serves on the board of the Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council, and has worked in a public relations capacity for the National Small Business Association, as well as some well-known Los Angeles politicians.

Headington worked as public policy/communications aide to Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, state Assemblyman Scott Wildman, state Sen. Gilbert Cedillo and Los Angeles City Council members Cindy Miscikowski and Jose Huizar.

“The first political job I had was with Richard Riordan,” Headington said. “I was there for his ‘Tough enough to turn L.A. around’ campaign.”

Headington hopes to bring some of the same style of toughness to turn the 38th Assembly District around.
He lists his priorities as: job creation, workforce education, budget reform and public safety.

“I want us to not be held back by heedless partisanship,” he said.

Headington said he believes in a “rising tide” that lifts all boats, as in a strong economy benefitting all.

He says when he’s not spending time with his wife, Sasha, and their son, Narayan, he’s volunteering his time with the Los Angeles Police Department Mission-Area Police Station or as a participant in the department’s Operations Valley Bureau Community Police Academy.
