Gray Submits Over One Thousand Names to Qualify for June Ballot

January 30, 2017 - - Assemblymember Adam Gray has submitted over 1,500 signatures of voters in the 21st Assembly District to qualify for placement on the ballot in lieu of paying a filing fee.

“Collecting these signatures is a lot of work,” said Gray. “It is also a humbling and positive experience,” he added. “Meeting voters door-to-door and hearing from them directly helps bring focus to the work I do in Sacramento.”

Assemblymember Gray has never had to pay a filing fee since he began running for office in 2012.

“Most legislators have stopped the practice of collecting signatures and just pay the filing fee instead,” said Mike Lynch, Gray’s campaign manager. “Last election, Adam was the only State Assembly candidate who got on the ballot with only signatures,” said Lynch. “I suspect he will be one of the few to do so in 2018 also.”

Gray will appear on the June 2018 ballot seeking reelection to the State Assembly. His signatures came from all parts of the 21st Assembly District, in both Merced and Stanislaus counties.
