I want California to lead the way when it comes to building a stronger economy, investing in child care, providing high-quality education and job training, welcoming immigrants, and ensuring access to affordable and quality health care for all. I will work to ensure that everyone, no matter their background, has the opportunity to succeed.

    Alex De Ocampo Talks Seniors Long-Term Care at AAPI Democratic Forum

    Alex De Ocampo participated in the AAPI Democratic Forum on September 5th at the Pilipino Worker Center. The Asian Journal covered the forum and here are excerpts from their story: Charitable foundation adviser Alex De Ocampo, the only Filipino-American in the race, shared his experience growing up with a mother who needed long-term care, a story that resonated with many of the Filipino constituents. “I’m going to be a fierce advocate to make sure we expand in-home support services. I also plan to lobby to make sure Medicare covers more and more of these services, so I am going to be that voice because I’m living it as we speak,” De Ocampo said, adding he promises to ensure more funding into vocational health services to breed more doctors, nurses and health care professionals. In terms of addressing AAPI concerns specifically, De Ocampo addressed the diversity of the AAPI electorate and promised to listen to all groups under the AAPI label. “Sometimes with the AAPI community we all get clumped together but we have to understand issues in the Vietnamese community, in the Chinese community and the Filipino community can be vastly different,” De Ocampo noted. “I’m gonna make sure I’m reaching out to you, listening to your needs and delivering what each community needs.” If elected, De Ocampo would be the second state legislator of Filipino descent after state Assemblymember Rob Bonta (D-Alameda), and the first from the Los Angeles area.   The impact of Filipino voters   Fil-Am voters in AD 51 have a tremendous impact on the election and have notable power to sway the election. Fil-Ams comprise the largest AAPI voting group in the district with about 4.6 percent of the AAPI electorate (about 10,160 voters).   Moreover, they historically have a larger turnout at the polls with about 19 percent, whereas the largest ethnic group, Latinos, come out at about 12 percent. In turn, if the Fil-Am community can increase turnout, it can be a powerful force in this election, and in the city in general.

    Assemblymember Rob Bonta and Filipino Leaders Unite in Support of Alex De Ocampo for State Assembly

    Filipino community leaders are making Alex De Ocampo their choice in the race for California’s 51st Assembly District. Announced in this week’s Asian Journal, Assemblymember Rob Bonta has endorsed Alex De Ocampo. Assemblymember Bonta is the only Filipino-American currently serving in the state legislature and stressed the importance of having more qualified Filipino Americans in elected office as the community is the fastest-growing group in California. As stated to the Asian Journal, Assemblymember Bonta explained why he’s supporting Alex: “I’ve known Alex for some time now and really believe in his leadership and his ability to step into the role on day one and hit the ground running to make a difference and represent the values of the district and all its beautiful diversity. He’s very skilled and experienced, and he’s been involved in several endeavors and I know that he’s ready. He’s extremely smart, has great interpersonal skills and has cultivated wonderful relationships, which truly impact your ability to be effective as an Assemblymember. “Having been the first Filipino elected in the state Legislature, I promise also to not be the last. Helping other great leaders who have a path to be in the Legislature and supporting and mentoring them or having their back has been a top priority for me and supporting Alex, given this election and the timing, is a top priority for me. It’s always been important to me, making sure we get another Filipino in the same office. I’m very proud and honored to support and endorse him.”
