County Supervisor Greg Cox Endorses Lorena Gonzalez in 80th Assembly District Special Election

Longtime Republican Supervisor and Former Chula Vista Mayor Hails Lorena as “Committed to Creating Jobs”

CHULA VISTA – (Thursday, April 4, 2013) – Greg Cox, the longtime County Supervisor for the South Bay, today announced his endorsement of pro-jobs Democrat Lorena Gonzalez's campaign for the 80th Assembly District.

Cox, a Republican, has represented the South Bay on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors since 1995. Before becoming a County Supervisor, Cox was Mayor (1981-1990) and City Councilman (1976-1981) of Chula Vista. Cox also served as Executive Director of the South County Economic Development Corp. and as an educator in the Sweetwater Union High School District.

“I have worked with Lorena and I know she is committed to creating jobs and protecting the middle class,” Cox said. “With only two candidates in this race, I will be casting my vote for Lorena and encourage other South Bay voters to do the same.”

Lorena and Supervisor Cox partnered in 2010 on a common-sense approach to protecting the jobs of concession, parking and hospitality employees at the San Diego International Airport upon a change in contractor.

Gonzalez 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.
