No surprises in local state Senate election

Election night for candidates running in the two state senate districts that include the Santa Clarita Valley could best be described simply as — Tuesday night.

Since the primary election advances the top two candidates in a district, and since there are only two contenders in both District 21 and 27, everybody wins and all candidates advance to the November election.

In the 27th Senate District, Democrat incumbent Fran Pavley is challenged by Republican newcomer Todd Zink.
Pavley was elected to the California Senate in 2008 and currently serves as chairwoman of the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee.

Zink, a decorated Marine Corps officer and deputy district attorney, told The Signal on Monday he expects to be watching the election coverage on TV at home  with his family in Westlake Village.

In Senate District 21, Assemblyman Steve Knight, R-Palmdale, is running against Democrat Star Moffatt.

“In answer to your question, ‘Where will I be election night?’  I will be traveling the town visiting my future constituents,” Moffatt said Monday.

“People will show at the polls that in fact they are tired of the status quo politicians who have sold themselves to special interest groups and have chosen to represent special interest groups, rather than represent the same people they claim to serve.

“People are in fact tired of ineffective politicians such as my opponent who has even voted against infant rights, children’s rights, women’s rights, minority rights and other person’s rights.”
