Rep. Brown to Seek Reelection to Assure Control of District

Rep. George E. Brown Jr. (D-Colton) pledged to seek reelection in 1990 to help retain the 36th Congressional District seat for his party in the 1991 revision of district boundaries.

“I’ve decided to run again for another two-year term,” the 68-year-old legislator said.

Brown previously had committed himself only to completing the term he won in November, his ninth. The district includes parts of western Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

“A major consideration in deciding to run again is to assure it (the district) will not be made into a safe Republican one in the next reapportionment,” Brown said. “In addition, my health is very good, and I am close to a committee chairmanship.”
