Wilk, Headington fight over common ground

Both candidates for the 38th District Assembly, Democrat Edward Headington and Republican Scott Wilk, share the same three core platforms: education, public safety and job creation.

But, as both explained during a public forum taped today at the SCVTV studios in Newhall, the devil is in the details.

Headington emphasized what he calls a “purple coalition” of Republicans and Democrats that he would look to build if elected. He also repeatedly stated that, though he agrees with Wilk on a number of issues, the key difference between the two is who could best address those issues.

“A lot of great ideas may come from the (Republican) side of the aisle,” Headington said. “But unless you’re part of the majority party, it’s hard to get things done.”

Wilk said he would have no problem working with Democrats to find common ground and that he would form advisory committees on various topics to involve all shareholders on an issue.

“Anything we do needs to be a collaborative process,” Wilk said.

The forum was hosted by The Signal, SCVTV and KHTS AM 1220 and will be posted on the websites of each local media outlet.
