COSTA MESA — Phu Nguyen, the Democratic Assembly candidate for the 68th District, is hoping to claim the Latino vote in his opponent's home city of Costa Mesa.
Nguyen is meeting with members of the Latino community leaders here on Sunday.
The Garden Grove resident is seeking to harness Costa Mesa votes away from their Mayor Allan Mansoor, a Republican, according to a release issued by the Nguyen camp.
The event is one of a series of meetings Nguyen has held with the Latino community and others in the district, which is being vacated by state Assemblyman Van Tran (R-Westminster).
Nguyen is looking to listen to the community's concerns and speak to its members about the importance of becoming active members and voters, he said in the press release.
Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles), chairman of the Latino Caucus, will also be present at the Mora residence, 647 18th St., where the event will take place from 3 to 5 p.m., the release stated.
The public is invited to attend.
