From the press release:

Gold Star Father, financial advisor, and pro-military advocate Dante Acosta has officially filed as a candidate for California’s 25th Congressional District. The 25th Congressional District covers Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, the Antelope Valley, and Porter Ranch. Mr. Acosta is an active member in his community. Since the death of his son, U.S. Army SPC Rudy Acosta, one year ago Mr. Acosta has been an outspoken advocate for our military’s force protection protocols.

“We are facing unprecedented economic challenges and global pressures that threaten our security and way of life,” Acosta says. “However, I strongly believe the American dream is still alive.”

As a strong conservative and principled leader, Mr. Acosta believes in a common sense government. “I believe in a strong military, helping small businesses create more jobs, and ensuring a bright economic future. As a leader my moral compass dictates the highest ethical behavior and standards for this office.”

“I am running because I want to see the 25th to be adequately represented. Having to deal, first hand, with the lack of leadership in this district has motivated me to pick up the torch and run this race. I want to be sure the great people of this district have a strong representative who listens to, communicates with, and cares about them.”

Dante Acosta is a long time resident of the Santa Clarita Valley. He is a senior financial advisor, a Gold Star father, and advocate for our military. He currently lives in Canyon Country with his wife of 26 years, Carolyn, and his two children.

Filing deadline closes in an hour and let’s see if anyone else files.
