About the Candidate - Travis Allen
Assemblyman Travis Allen was first elected to the State Assembly in November of 2012 to represent the 72nd Assembly District, which includes the cities of Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Westminster, Los Alamitos and the unincorporated communities of Sunset Beach, Midway City, and Rossmoor, as well as portions of Cypress, Stanton, Anaheim, and Santa Ana.
As a State Assemblyman, Travis Allen has focused his attention on lower taxes, safer communities, better roads and better schools. He believes California can once again be a place that is not only known for its great weather, but a state that has the best schools, safe neighborhoods, thriving small businesses, and communities where hard working families can afford to live.
As a Financial Advisor, Assemblyman Allen saw the damage done to the portfolios of his hard working clients by government over-regulation and bad policies. He has seen firsthand businesses that have been forced to relocate to other states – taking their jobs with them. Seeing this repeat itself too many times, Assemblyman Allen became politically active to help small businesses by fighting for job creating policies.
