Two Prominent California Leaders Back Pete Aguilar for Congress

(San Bernardino, CA)  California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom and U.S. Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren have endorsed Pete Aguilar for Congress in California’s 31st District, the Aguilar campaign announced today.

“The people of San Bernardino County would be well-served having Pete as their representative in Washington. He’s done a great job managing the City of Redlands and I know he’ll be an energetic and pragmatic voice for the Inland Empire in Congress,” said Lieutenant Governor Newsom.

“I am very happy to lend my support to Pete Aguilar.  His commitment to working for middle class families and promoting the interests of our state and the nation will serve his constituents well in Congress,” added Representative Lofgren, who serves as chair of the California Democratic Congressional Delegation.

In a sign of growing momentum for Aguilar’s campaign for Congress, he raised over $300,000 in the second quarter of 2013, more than any of his opponents over the same period. Aguilar has also received the endorsement of U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein and over a dozen Democratic members of Congress from California.

Pete Aguilar (D) 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 that businesses and residents rely on.

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.
