Boy Meets World star Ben Savage has officially announced his plans to run for Congress in the seat currently occupied by Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, who is now running for the seat of outgoing U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. 
The actor, a Democrat, who played Cory in the iconic sitcom touted his bona fides as a "proud Californian, union member and longtime resident of District 30 who comes from a family of unwavering service to our country and community." His older brother Fred Savage notably starred in The Wonder Years and is now a TV director. 
“I’m running for Congress because it’s time to restore faith in government by offering reasonable, innovative and compassionate solutions to our country’s most pressing issues,” Savage wrote in an Instagram post. “And it’s time for new and passionate leaders who can help move our country forward. Leaders who want to see the government operating at maximum capacity, unhindered by political divisions and special interests.
Savage identified public safety, homelessness, and affordable housing as priorities.
