All candidates for California State Assembly District 30 complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Both of the candidates running in the Nov. 5, 2024, general election for California State Assembly District 30 — Incumbent Dawn Addis (D) and Dalila Epperson (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.

Here are the candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?


“I strongly believe in fiscal responsibility and accountability. We must bring our spending in line with our revenues. Everything needs to be closely considered – this includes new legislation that may have a cost, programs that haven’t been checked recently for efficiency and effectiveness, non-essential spending that may need to be delayed. I’ve always looked at the budget as representing our values, so I am focused on protecting important gains we have made for the Central Coast’s children and families. California’s economy is dynamic, strong, and well-positioned to grow in the future. I’ll be working to keep our budget balanced while making the investments we need.”


“Parental Rights, Election Integrity, and deregulate Small Businesses. On top of these, we already have the cleanest, viable, most reliable energy resource in the world- Nuclear energy. There is no climate crisis. Follow the Money if you want to know the why for all the green energy nonsense.”
