Councilman Todd Gloria Endorses Georgette Gomez for City Council
CITY HEIGHTS – Councilman Todd Gloria is the most recent Democratic city leader to endorse Georgette Gomez for City Council, her campaign announced today.
Councilman Gloria’s endorsement in the race is significant. Gloria is among San Diego’s most popular and well respected Democrats. Additionally, Gloria represented large swaths of District 9 prior to redistricting and his endorsement is expected to be influential with voters.
With just three weeks to go till voting begins in the June primary, Gloria’s endorsement comes on the heels of growing support for the Gomez campaign. Last week, Gomez was endorsed by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins. In recent weeks, Gomez has earned endorsements from Former State Senator Chris Kehoe, Sierra Club, and Councilman David Alvarez.
Georgette Gomez said: “I am deeply honored to earn Councilman Gloria’s support. Todd has been a champion for our neighborhoods, authoring the increase in San Diego’s minimum wage and fighting tirelessly to fix city streets in neglected communities. I’m running to bring change to City Hall to end the broken system of special interest giveaways that is shortchanging working people in our neighborhoods. It’s time to make City Hall serve the people again.”
Georgette Gómez has served District 9 communities for over twelve years, both in her career as an environmental advocate, and through her service on the City Heights planning committee. A native San Diegan, and the daughter of immigrant parents, she has fought to ensure that all working families have the opportunity to thrive. She and her partner, Xochitl live in the City Heights community of Azalea Park.
