PALMDALE- Representative Steve Knight (ret.) issued the following statement.
“I have always answered the call to serve and today is no exception. I am proud to announce my run to return to Congress. As an Army Veteran, former LAPD officer, and a dedicated public official for over 15 years, I have always put my community first. Today is no exception. I am proud to return to public service and deliver the type of representation our district deserves.
While in Congress Knight brought a grant to alleviate traffic congestion in Santa Clarita, a new groundbreaking Veterans healthcare program and was a leader in increasing funding for our aerospace industry.
Knight was first elected to represent California’s 25th congressional district, including the Antelope Valley, Simi Valley and Santa Clarita Valley, in 2014. Knight lives in Palmdale with his wife Lily.
