ADMIRAL RONNE FROMAN ENDORSES ROCKY CHAVEZ FOR STATE ASSEMBLY POST
OCEANSIDE—Admiral Ronne Froman today announced her endorsement of Rocky Chavez for California State Assembly District 76.
“Rocky has really done it,” said Froman. “He knows government, and he has proven that he can reduce the cost of government without diminishing the quality of services. He is a Marine veteran and our state certainly needs his kind of leadership.”
Admiral Froman served in the United States Navy for 31 years and was the director of Ashore Readiness for the Chief of Naval Operations, responsible for nearly 90 Navy stations and bases around the world with a $7 billion budget. She was a Senior Vice President at General Atomics and currently works in education and a veterans program called REBOOT. She has received numerous awards including the Defense Distinguished Medal, 2011 Woman of the Year in California, 76th Assembly District (then a San Diego district), San Diego Magazine Woman of the Year, Girl Scouts Cool Woman and San Diego Business Journal’s Women Who Mean Business.
“It is an honor to be endorsed by Admiral Froman,” said Chavez. “She is an accomplished and highly respected leader, not only in the military but in private industry and government as well.”
Froman and Chavez have a long relationship and most recently worked together when Chavez served as Acting Secretary of the California Dept. of Veterans Affairs.
Chavez announced his campaign for the 76th California Assembly District last week on the factory floor of a sign manufacturer in North County, with an address focusing on jobs and the economy, education, veterans, and government efficiency. Chavez served as a Marine for over twenty-eight years, retiring as a colonel. He then went on to serve almost a decade on the Oceanside City Council before joining the Department of Veterans Affairs.
