Former Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado confirms he’ll run for governor

Former Lt. Gov. Abel Maldonado speaks at a press conference Thursday at the Santa Maria branch jail on West Foster Road about his political plans.

Former Lt. Governor Abel Maldonado confirmed Monday he will run for governor in 2014, with the local Republican saying among his top priorities will be fighting to repeal the state’s controversial Public Safety Realignment Act, aimed at reducing the state prison population by turning responsibility for some prisoners over to counties.

Aside from public safety, Maldonado said his campaign will focus on job creation and education.

“We can do better,” Maldonado said.
