SAN DIEGO BUSINESS LEADER LINDEN BLUE ENDORSES ROCKY CHAVEZ
SAN DIEGO—Vice-Chairman of General Atomics Linden Blue today endorsed Rocky Chavez for California Assembly, District 76. The company is known for its long history of developing safe and reliable systems for generating nuclear power around the world. As a major defense contractor, General Atomics also developed the unmanned “Predator” drone, used to keep U.S. soldiers out of harm’s way.
“Rocky has seen the inside of government as a Marine and as head of the Department of Veterans Affairs,” said Blue.“ He has shown that he can cut costs and hold the price of government down. I think he would be an outstanding state assemblyman.”
Blue has served as Vice-Chairman of General Atomics in San Diego since 1986, when he and his brother, Neal Blue, acquired the company. He is also Managing Director of Spectrum Aeronautical LLC, a developer and manufacturer of advanced business jets, and a co-founder and Chairman of the Executive Committee of Cordillera Corporation of Denver, Co.
“Linden Blue and General Atomics represent major employers in Southern California,” said Chavez. “In Sacramento, I’ll fight to ensure our businesses are able to grow and be successful, so they can provide jobs for our communities.”
Founded in 1955, General Atomics serves as one of the world's leading resources for high-technology systems ranging from the nuclear fuel cycle to electromagnetic systems, remotely operated surveillance aircraft, airborne sensors, and advanced electronic, wireless and laser technologies. The company employs more than 5,000 skilled professionals in the San Diego area.
Chavez recently announced his campaign for the 76th California Assembly District with an address focusing on jobs and the economy, education, veterans, and government efficiency. Chavez served as a Marine for more than twenty-eight years, retiring as a colonel. He then went on to serve nearly a decade on the Oceanside City Council before leading the Department of Veterans Affairs.
