MERCED, CA - Almost 2,000 Merced and Stanislaus County voters declared their support of Assemblyman Adam Gray by signing petitions putting him on the ballot for reelection to the State Assembly.

"I'm honored so many voters in the 21st Assembly District took the time and effort to individually sign these petitions," said Gray. "It shows they support my record and efforts in the State Capitol."

Gray is chair of the legislative San Joaquin Valley Caucus. "I look forward to continuing the work for Merced, Stanislaus, and the San Joaquin Valley in the State Capitol," said Gray. "We have learned that our region can only advance if we work together without regard to partisanship. That is how we passed the water bond, secured $1 million to plan the UC Merced medical school, and ended the 35 year practice of the 'negative bailout,' which will provide Stanislaus County with up to $4 million more each year to meet obligations like police protection and health care."

"By working together we accomplished a great deal, but more work is needed," said Gray. "All Californians must deal with challenges posed by the drought and by diminished groundwater basins," he said. "But it is only our area that faces the additional burden of the State mandate to take much of the irrigation water stored in our local dams. We will fight implementation of this plan in every way we can."

"For many in our area, jobs, educational opportunity, affordable health care, and personal safety continue to be great needs," said Gray. "Addressing those needs is my priority."

Gray's legislative work during 2015 won recognition by many, including the:

California Rifle and Pistol Association - Outstanding Legislator of the Year 2015
Central Valley Education Coalition - Legislator of the Year 2015
Civil Justice Association of California - Legislator of the Year 2015
