"Both former State Senator Killea and Supervisor Williams (ret.) represent the strong bipartisan coalition I bring to the job!" - Dave Roberts
San Diego, CA - Dave Roberts announced today that former State Senator Lucy Killea and Supervisor Leon Williams (ret.) endorse his candidacy for Third District County Supervisor. Killea and Williams join the growing list of over 100 Democrats, Republicans and Independents supporting Roberts.
"When I launched my campaign for County Supervisor on January 10, 2012, I promised to work in an inclusive fashion for all parts of the Third District and the County to improve our region's quality of life," said Roberts. "Having the strong support of visionary bipartisan leaders like former State Senator Lucy Killea and Supervisor Leon Williams (ret.), both who are respected across the political spectrum in San Diego County, continues to demonstrate that I have the right experience, leadership and vision to serve as the next Supervisor."
Roberts is also endorsed by Supervisor Pam Slater-Price who is retiring and crossed party lines to support Roberts' run for her open seat.
"Dave Roberts shares many of the same inclusive goals which I championed during my three terms on the County Board of Supervisors," said Williams. "I know that Dave Roberts will work tirelessly on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to support core county services and never forget that he reports to the taxpayers. I am so pleased to add my name as one of his supporters."
Supervisor Leon Williams (ret.) has accomplished a number of firsts in his life. He was the first African-American to serve on the San Diego City Council and County Board of Supervisors. He retired from the County Board of Supervisors in January 1995 and since that time was the last Democrat elected to that Board. Former State Senator Lucy Killea served in the California State Senate from 1989 to 1996. She is well-known for supporting women's rights and was inducted to the San Diego County Women's Hall of Fame in 2002.
