My name is Elizabeth Echols, and I’m a candidate for Assembly District 15. Thank you for visiting my website. I’d love to hear your feedback, and answer any questions you may have about the campaign.

This campaign isn’t about me; it’s about you and the issues you care about. I will keep my door open throughout this campaign. I want to minimize the political rhetoric and talk with you directly about the issues in your community and across the state.  I want to know how I can best represent you in Sacramento.

I’m excited to hit the ground running and am encouraged by the support I’ve already received. I’m particularly grateful for the support of my friends and family, and especially my husband Parviz.

It was a difficult decision to leave my job as Regional Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration, but I feel strongly that now is the time to run. It would be an honor and privilege to represent you and work on the progressive issues we all care about.

I appreciate your taking the time to check out my website. If you’d like more information on how to get involved with the campaign, please fill out our contact page.

In service and gratitude,


Elizabeth Echols
