Five Democrats and a Socialist Workers Party candidate will appear on the ballot for the May 18 2021 special election to fill the 54th Assembly District seat, California Secretary of State Shirley Weber announced.
The Democrats are Isaac Bryan, an educator and community organizer; Heather Hutt, a former state director for then-Sen. Kamala Harris; Dallas Fowler, a businesswoman and nonprofit executive; Samuel Robert Morales, a financial advisor and entrepreneur; and Cheryl C. Turner, an attorney and state commissioner.
Retail grocery worker Bernard Senter will appear on the ballot as a candidate with no party preference because there are not enough voters who have registered as members of the Socialist Workers Party for it to qualify as an official party.
The special election was necessitated when Sydney Kamlager won the March 2 special election to fill the 30th Senate District seat that was vacated by Holly Mitchell’s election to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
