Hueso Endorses Lorena to Replace Him in Assembly; Says She is Strongest Candidate for Rebuilding Middle Class
CHULA VISTA – (Friday, April 5, 2013) – State Senator Ben Hueso today announced his endorsement of pro-jobs Democrat Lorena Gonzalez's campaign for the 80th Assembly District.
Hueso represented the 80th Assembly District from 2010 until this March, when he was elected to the State Senate in a special election. Prior to his election to the Assembly, Hueso served as City Council President and Councilmember to San Diego neighborhoods in the South Bay and the Historic Barrio District.
“I support Lorena Gonzalez because she will provide honest representation to the people of the 80th Assembly District and she's committed to fighting for the Middle Class,” said State Senator Ben Hueso. “There is no better candidate than Lorena Gonzalez for the State Assembly.”
Lorena served as Hueso’s alternate on the California Coastal Commission and the two leaders have partnered on numerous initiatives, including legislation signed into law by Gov. Brown last year that protects Social Security benefits for public safety personnel (AB 1248).
Lorena is a candidate to replace 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.
