On June 4, 2019, citizens of District 33 will go to the polls and vote in a special election for a new state senator. Long Beach Republican Women Federated members are calling for Democratic candidate Lena Gonzalez to commit to a debate with Republican candidate Jack Guerrero. To date, Gonzalez has refused to debate her Republican opponent.
“The people of District 33 should hear from both candidates in an open forum that addresses their concerns,” said club President Linda MacDonald. “Why is Ms. Gonzalez afraid to meet and debate issues that affects everyone living in that district?”
Speaking at the April 13 monthly breakfast meeting, Guerrero received an enthusiastic reception from Republicans who know that a CPA with both real-world private business and public service experience can greatly benefit the community. Moreover, with headlines focused on immigration, Guerrero’s proudly shares that both his parents emigrated from Mexico and started their new lives in poor Los Angeles neighborhoods that were surrounded by poverty, gangs and decrepit public schools. He is a testament to the American dream: Through hard work and early ambition for self-improvement, Guerrero graduated from Harvard and Stanford Universities and has a resume of leadership roles in both the corporate and private sectors.
“Before the community votes on June 4 in the special election, they should hear from both candidates,” said MacDonald. “Long Beach Republican Women Federated is calling on Democrat Lena Gonzalez to agree to a debate with Jack Guerrero.”
