San Jacinto Councilwoman Crystal Ruiz, 45, said she is likely to enter the race for state Senator Bill Emmerson’s 23rd district seat when he steps down on Dec. 1.

Emmerson, R-Redlands, announced his intent to resign last week. Ruiz, a call center representative for Kaiser Permanente, and married mother of four young children, said she’ll make an official announcement later this week or early next week.
