Pete Aguilar Endorsed By Redlands Area Democratic Club

 The Redlands Area Democratic Club voted to endorsed Aguilar as the Democratic nominee to challenge Congressman Gary Miller

(Redlands, CA) — On Saturday, the Redlands Area Democratic Club voted overwhelmingly to endorse Pete Aguilar to be the Democratic Party nominee to challenge incumbent Republican Congressman Gary Miller. Aguilar, Mayor of the City of Redlands, received 86% of the vote. The remaining votes were split between Eloise Gomez Reyes (11%) and Danny Tillman (3%). Former Democratic Congressman Joe Baca received zero votes.

In reaction to Saturday’s vote, Pete Aguilar released the following statement:

“I am very grateful for this endorsement and I’m excited to continue building a strong coalition to take the fight on behalf of Inland Empire families to the halls of Congress.

This campaign is about making sure that San Bernardino County families have a representative who will fight to create jobs, stand-up for middle-class families and protect our seniors, and I’m thankful to have the Redlands Area Democratic Club join our campaign.” 

The Redlands Area Democratic Club endorsement comes on the heels of a slew of major endorsements for Aguilar’s congressional bid, including United States Senator Dianne Feinstein, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, City of Rialto Mayor Deborah Robertson, State Assembly member Cheryl Brown, and over a dozen California members of Congress.

“Pete has done an outstanding job as Mayor of Redlands, and I know that he will bring the same energy and fresh leadership to Washington to serve San Bernardino County residents. The members of the Redlands Area Democratic Club look forward to working hard to send Pete to Congress,” said Steve Chapman, President of the Redlands Area Democratic Club.

Pete Aguilar is a small business owner and Mayor of Redlands. He is a strong advocate for economic growth and fairness in the Inland Empire, a leader who has reached across party lines to serve the best interests of middle-class families.

As Redlands Mayor, Pete has forged commonsense solutions that have improved the City’s economy, created jobs, and strengthened vital services on which businesses and residents rely.

Pete worked to balance the city budget, turning its multi-million dollar deficit into a surplus and improving the city’s credit rating. Pete also led efforts to make Redlands more attractive to businesses and to invest in San Bernardino County’s infrastructure.
