Former Democratic Party Heads Endorse Alvarez for Mayor of San Diego, Call on Central Committee to Follow

September 23, 2013, SAN DIEGO – Today, three former Chairs of the San Diego County Democratic Party: Maureen Steiner, Bob Jellison, and Kennan Kaeder, endorsed David Alvarez for mayor.  The Chairs called upon the County Democratic Party delegates to support Councilmember Alvarez in the Party's endorsement vote on Tuesday.

"David is truly the best person to represent the Party in this important upcoming election," said Maureen Steiner.  "He deserves the full support of the San Diego County Democratic community."
The three Chairs agreed that Councilmember Alvarez represents the values and character of the San Diego County Democratic Party.  As the progressive voice of the San Diego City Council, he has carried those issues effectively and consistently.

"David's candidacy has excited and energized the base of the Democratic Party which is critical in the upcoming special election, and to maintaining our progressive majority in San Diego," Bob Jellison said.

When comparing the record of Councilmember Alvarez to that of former Republican turned independent Assemblymember turned Democrat Nathan Fletcher,  "a vote for Fletcher is a vote for Faulconer," Kennan Kaeder stated.

Steiner was ultimately impressed by the combination of Alvarez's character, effectiveness, and viability.  "When he ran for City Council, he confounded expectations and proved naysayers wrong," she said.  "He has a proven track record of how to put the right team together with a winning strategy to build a broad progressive coalition.  I'm proud to support him and I call on my fellow Democrats to do the same."

Jellison added, "By providing a united voice of support for a candidate who truly personifies the values of the party, we will be sending a clear message to voters on November 19th."
