Proven Leadership Matters in the Community and in the Capitol
CHULA VISTA, Calif. – Knowing a thing or two about the importance of steady leadership skills, retired Rear Adm. José Betancourt endorses Steve Castaneda for Assembly.
Betancourt, a Chula Vista resident and maritime small business owner, worked his way up the ranks during his more than 30 years of military service. Affectionately known as San Diego’s Navy Mayor, he served as commander of the Navy’s Southwest Region prior to his retirement and was one of the highest ranking officials in the United States Navy.
“I am so very honored and humbled to receive the support of one of the most decorated and respected Navy commanders to ever serve in this country’s military,” said Steve Castaneda, candidate for 80th Assembly District. “Whether serving in the line of duty as a City of San Diego police officer, protecting the public interests of all Chula Vista residents as a two-term councilman, or contributing to my local community as a family man and small business owner, I have always respected and held our military in the highest regard.
“That is why I am proud to have the support of retired Navy hero Rear Admiral Betancourt because he knows that I can get things done.”
Castaneda eagerly looks forward to being a voice for all brave men and women who serve or have served in America’s armed forces.
The San Diego region’s extensive history and valuable relationship with the U.S. Navy and its families will have no bigger supporter in Sacramento than Castaneda.
