San Bernardino, CA – Today, Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar won a decisive victory in California’s 31st Congressional District. The Redlands Mayor won by 2 points over Republican candidate Paul Chabot. His statement follows:
“I’m honored that Inland Empire families have chosen me to represent them in Congress,” Aguilar said. “The people of San Bernardino County spoke clearly tonight by choosing a representative who is dedicated to building the middle class, and one who puts people over politics to get results for our community.
“We have come a long way, and I have many people to thank: my family, the staff and volunteers and all of those who have stood with us in this campaign because they believe as I do, that with a commitment to education, good paying jobs and our seniors and veterans, the Inland Empire can continue to be a place of opportunity and success.
“Tonight, I am humbled by your trust in me, and my resolve to go to Washington and deliver for you has never been greater. We have a lot of work to do, but together, we can rebuild our middle class and ensure that our best days are ahead of us.”
