APPLE VALLEY • A 24-year-old is eyeing the 33rd Assembly District seat after incumbent Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, officially announced his run for governor earlier this month.

Brett Savage, of Apple Valley, said Thursday that he declared his candidacy in September, although the candidate filing period does not officially began until Feb. 10.

Savage, an alumni of Victor Valley Community College and current graduate teaching assistant at University of California, Irvine, is a relative political unknown in a race without any big-name challengers so far.

“I’ve always wanted to be involved in the community somehow,” Savage said.

His mother is an educator in Apple Valley and his father is a 30-year veteran of the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

The district seat he is seeking represents communities in the High Desert.
