Two-term Assemblyman Bill Berryhill has lived most of his life in Stanislaus County, but he knows San Joaquin County as well. He owns a ranch in Clements and has served almost four years as a 26th District assemblyman, which includes Victor, Lockeford, Clements, Morada and eastern Acampo.
In battling Republican Leroy Ornellas and Democrat Cathleen Galgiani for a spot in the November general election, Berryhill said he is campaigning heavily to give himself a head-start in the general election campaign. For example, he's reached out to Hispanics.
