Longtime South Bay Leader Says Lorena Will Be Strongest Voice for Rebuilding the Middle Class in California
CHULA VISTA – (Tuesday, April 2, 2013) – U.S. Congressman Juan Vargas today announced his endorsement of pro-jobs Democrat Lorena Gonzalez's campaign for the 80th Assembly District.
Vargas was elected to Congress last year after representing the San Diego County’s South Bay communities in the State Senate (2010-2013), State Assembly (2001-2007), and San Diego City Council (1993-2000). Lorena and the Congressman have partnered on developing policies to preserve small and neighborhood businesses, to prevent renewable energy jobs from being exported out of the region, and to protect social security benefits for public safety personnel.
“I have endorsed Lorena Gonzalez because she has a proven track record of delivering for our communities in Chula Vista, South San Diego and National City.” Vargas said. “No one is more committed for fighting for the middle class than Lorena.”
Lorena is a candidate to replace State Senator-elect Ben Hueso in the 80th Assembly District, which includes Chula Vista, National City and the City of San Diego neighborhoods of San Ysidro, City Heights, Barrio Logan, Sherman Heights, Otay Mesa, Paradise Hills and Golden Hill. The special election for the 80th Assembly District is scheduled for Tuesday, May 21.
