I’m excited for my dear friend, Jimmy Gomez, to be representing our community in Congress. He has served us well and we need to ensure that his track record of progressive leadership continues in the Assembly. 

I’m running to represent the 51st Assembly District because I want California to lead the way when it comes to building a stronger economy, providing high-quality education and job training, welcoming immigrants, and ensuring access to affordable and quality health care for all. I will work to ensure that everyone, no matter their background, has the opportunity to succeed.

I'm the son of Filipino immigrants who came to Historic Filipinotown to flee the Marcos regime. I understand the struggle many working people and immigrant families face when trying to make a new life in Los Angeles. Despite growing up in intense poverty, I was able to take advantage of opportunities made possible to me by public education and the entertainment industry.

I'm asking you to join me in this campaign. Together, we will fight for our progressive values.

Alex De Ocampo has earned the support of Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell in his campaign for State Assembly. A strong advocate for the arts and entertainment economy in Los Angeles, Councilmember O’Farrell shares Alex’s commitment to ensuring Los Angeles remains the creative center of the world.

As a member of the State Assembly, Alex would be a great partner to work with to strengthen our arts and entertainment economy,” stated Councilmember O’Farrell.

Representing the communities of Echo Park, Elysian Valley, Glassell Park, Hollywood, Historic Filipinotown, and Silver Lake, Councilmember O’Farrell has been an effective and accessible member of the city council, digging in on important community issues, as well as pushing for greater opportunity in the local economy.
