November 1, 2014
San Bernardino, CA – Today, Redlands Mayor Pete Aguilar, Democratic Candidate for California’s 31st Congressional District, was joined by Vice President Joe Biden and State Senator Alex Padilla at Colton High School for a Get Out The Vote rally in support of Mayor Aguilar’s Congressional bid. Vice President Biden announced his support for Aguilar as the candidate with the experience and priorities to deliver results for the Inland Empire’s middle class. The event brought together over a thousand San Bernardino County residents, local leaders and community organizers, all united in their support for Aguilar.
“It is an honor to have Vice President Biden here at Colton High School,” said Aguilar. “Senator Padilla, Vice President Biden and I all know that when our middle class is strong, our country is strong. We have just 3 days until Election Day, and we will continue fighting until the end for good education, investments in job creation and a stronger middle class.”
“Pete Aguilar knows that education is the foundation of opportunity and economic growth,” said State Senator Alex Padilla, Democratic candidate for Secretary of State. “I’m honored to be with Pete Aguilar and Vice President Biden in the closing days of this campaign.”
Aguilar has been hosting several GOTV events across San Bernardino County, discussing the importance of his Middle Class Initiative and listening to the concerns of Inland Empire residents. Earlier this week, Aguilar received the endorsement of President Bill Clinton at another GOTV rally in Southern California. He is endorsed by the San Bernardino Sun and Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
