STATE ASSEMBLYMAN PAUL COOK EXPLORES RUN FOR CONGRESS

State Assemblyman Paul Cook, a former Town Council member and Mayor of the Town of Yucca Valley, is exploring a run for U.S. Congress. In an interview with Z107.7 news, Cook said he is considering running for the newly created 8th Congresssional District, which includes our entire Morongo Basin, parts of San Bernardino, Highlands, Yucaipa, the Victor Valley, Inyo and Mono Counties, and Needles. Cook said his final decision will be largely based on what long-time Congressman Jerry Lewis does. After redistricting, Lewis now finds himself in the 31st District, already with incumbent representation. Lewis can choose to run again or retire. Cook, a retired decorated Marine Colonel, says the 8th District includes large military installations in Twentynine Palms, Barstow, and Fort Irwin, and he thinks it will be a great opportunity to continue his work in support of active duty and retired military in the region. Former Yucca Valley Councilman and Mayor Chad Mayes is the chairman of Cook’s campaign committee. Mayes is the Chief of Staff for San Bernardino County’s 5th Supervisor, Janice Rutherford. County sources have said current 1st District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt is also considering a run for the new 8th Congressional District.
