This has been an exciting week for us! In addition to Mayor Blakespear’s support, we’ve also received the endorsement of three more elected and former elected officials in Southern California.
It’s vitally important that Oceanside have a Mayor who has the confidence of leaders in the region. Officials in Southern California face similar challenges, such as effectively dealing with the homeless crisis, ensuring diversity, fair and equitable treatment of those who might be marginalized, and protecting our environment from climate change.
I am honored to have the support of City Council Persons Ahmad Zahra of Fullerton and Daniel Lee from Culver City as well as Former Assemblymember Patty Lopez. Having the support of these elected officials is an honor. I hope that you will consider supporting me in the coming months as we move closer to our election.
