Eric Swalwell Announces Run for Congress – Dublin High Grad Aims for New 15th District

September 21, 2011

Eric Swalwell, City of Dublin Councilmember and Alameda County District Attorney’s Office prosecutor, today announced his campaign for the newly drawn 15th District in the U.S. Congress for the 2012 election.  Swalwell is a Dublin High School Class of ’99 grad (as well as the current president of the Dublin High Alumni Association) and earned his degree in law at the University of Maryland. Swalwell was profiled last year by OneDublin.org (read more…).

The California Citizens Redistricting Commission was tasked with re-drawing district lines for U.S. Congress, State Senate and State Assembly seats. The new district maps, released on August 15, represent a major shift in the California political landscape and an opportunity for newcomers like Swalwell to challenge incumbents. The California 15th District includes Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, Castro Valley, Hayward, Union City and portions of unincorporated Alameda County (interactive maps available here). The 2012 election will also feature an open primary (approved by California voters in 2010 via Prop. 14), meaning the top two vote-getters in primary races will face-off in the general election, regardless of political party.
