Former Mayor Frank Scotto Announces Official Bid for State Assembly

Former Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto announced his bid for State Assembly about one month ago.

Yet only today did I finally get my hands on the press release he had issued.


His time to run was in 2014.

That year, he had the momentum at his back, since he was wrapping up his popular tenure as mayor of Torrance.

Now he's running for state assembly, four years later?

What do you think?

Former Torrance Mayor Frank Scotto Announces Candidacy for Assembly
Leadership With Integrity
Torrance, California - Today, Former Torrance Mayor, Frank Scotto (R-Torrance) announced his candidacy for California State Assembly in the 66th District. Scotto has called Torrance home for the past 60 years. He comes from a background of service, like his time spent in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. After leaving the Army at the Rank of Sergeant, Frank opened local gasoline service stations. In 1975, Scotto started his own tow truck company, Frank Scotto Towing, which provides emergency services to a number of local emergency automobile assistance programs like the Freeway Service Patrol, California Highway Patrol, and the Automobile Club of Southern California.

Scotto continued his public service in Torrance during two decades serving as a Civil Service Commissioner, City Council Member, Mayor Pro-tem, and most recently Mayor. Scotto has a history as a forward thinker and a reformer. He was integral in bringing economic development projects to Torrance like the Toyota Sports Complex while also encouraging conservation by leading the charge to plant 1,000 trees among the community.

Ahead of his announcement, Scotto said, "I am extremely grateful for the outpouring of support I have received. I vow to be a strong voice for South Bay Residents in Sacramento and bring home the support and services that we need."

Candidate for State Assembly

“In talking with the people of this community, the message I keep hearing is one of being ignored. I was encouraged to run because of a lack of leadership in Sacramento, and we are not getting our fair share of the tax benefits. Sacramento politicians continue to tax the hardest working families while raising the price of everything from a gallon of gas to the food at the grocery store. If I am elected, I promise to fight to improve our quality of life."

“Frank Scotto understands the voice of his constituents and his neighbors,” states Heidi Ann Ashcraft Torrance City Councilwomen. “I have known Frank for 35 years, and he has proven time and time again to be a hard-working small business owner who is dedicated to his community."

The 66th Assembly District includes the South Bay of Los Angeles County and Torrance, Redondo Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Manhattan Beach, Gardena, Los Angeles, Hermosa Beach, Harbor City, Harbor Gateway, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Lomita, Palos Verdes Estates, and West Carson.
