Trio of leaders unite behind Sergio Contreras for Supervisor

In another illustration of his extensive support from prominent local leaders, today Westminster City Councilmember Sergio Contreras secured the endorsements of California State Senator Lena Gonzalez, Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell, and former State Senator Josh Newman.

Each released a statement with their endorsement:

“Working women and men in Orange County need and deserve a champion who will advance a pro-worker, pro-jobs and pro-middle class agenda on the Board of Supervisors. I’m thrilled to endorse Sergio Contreras for Supervisor, because I know he will advance common-sense solutions that lift up working people, including addressing homelessness, expanding healthcare access and fighting for quality public schools. I’m looking forward to helping Sergio in his campaign.”
-State Senator Lena Gonzalez

“I’m excited to endorse Sergio Contreras for OC Supervisor, because he has the experience and vision needed to flip the 1st District and fight for middle and working class families on the OC Board of Supervisors. As a Councilmember and on the School Board, he has fought to improve public education and worked to expand access to affordable housing and good jobs. I’m with him 100%”
-State Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell

“I’m pleased to endorse Sergio Contreras for Orange County Supervisor. As a City Councilmember, and previously as a School Board Member, Sergio has worked hard to build coalitions, find solutions to problems big and small, and knows how to get things done. With his background and record, I know Sergio will advance common-sense policies that grow the local economy, protect taxpayers, and hold government accountable while working tirelessly to expand opportunity and improve the quality of life for all Orange County residents.”
-State Senator Josh Newman (Ret.)

Last week, Contreras earned the coveted endorsement of U.S. Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, and announced that his campaign has raised more than $100,000. Contreras leads the field of candidates in endorsements and fundraising by a wide margin, demonstrating that he has strong, broad-based support and is far and away the strongest candidate to flip the seat.
