Edward Ritchie is the Democratic candidate for assembly in California’s rural 3rd district. Currently, Ritchie is on the board of Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority, the 13th Agricultural Association and North Central Counties Consortium Workforce Development.
Ritchie believes creating jobs and attracting business to the 3rd district can make it a viable state hub and that streamlining “red tape” is the path toward economic efficiency. He highlights himself as a pro-environment, pro-labor Democrat. His policy priorities include education, retirement and healthcare for seniors and environment preservation.
