Long Beach Councilmember Roberto Uranga
"After carefully reviewing my potential candidacy and the effects this would have on my District, my supporters, and my family, I have decided not to seek the office of Senator for Senate District 33 (Lara). I wish to thank all who have supported and encouraged me to seek this office and ask that they join me in supporting Long Beach Councilwoman Lena Gonzalez as she moves forward with her campaign.
Gonzalez and I share many of the same values. Her reelection will ensure Long Beach has a voice in Sacramento."
