Introducing one of your State Senate candidates

Today the Press Editorial Board was paid a visit by Lois Wolk, who currently serves in the Assembly and is the presumtive Democratic candidate to replace termed-out Mike Machado, D-Linden, in the 5th State Senate race.

She's up against Greg Aghazarian, a Stockton Republican.

Wolk's Assembly district encompasses about half of the Senate district she hopes to occupy, a Senate district with the lion's share of the infamous and crumbling Delta levee system. That whole water thing — especially protecting the Delta, defending housing developments from flooding and improving the water supply — is a big issue with her. So is planning residential growth in such a way that it doesn't put itself in the way of the next flood, which only makes sense.

As far as her campaign, she hopes people will focus on her voting record, something she said she's very proud of.

Stay tuned for Aghazarian's meeting at the Press. I'll give you an update as soon as it happens.
