FORMER CARLSBAD MAYOR AND LOCAL POLITICAL LEGEND BUD LEWIS SUPPORTS ROCKY CHAVEZ
CARLSBAD—Support for Rocky Chavez’s Assembly campaign keeps growing after he achieved first place in this month’s primary. Now, long-time Carlsbad Mayor Bud Lewis joins the ranks of supporters with his endorsement, announced today.
“Like me, Rocky Chavez has spent his life in public service – first as a Marine and later as an elected official,” Lewis said. “We need fiscal conservatives like Rocky Chavez who will work with others to solve our state’s financial crisis and stand up for the voters.”
Lewis said he supported Rocky because of his military experience and service as a veteran. He also said he believed in Rocky’s message of fiscal responsibility and his plan to get results out of government.
“Bud Lewis is a local legend, and I’m thrilled to have his support,” said Chavez. “He set an example of what a public servant should be: devoted to his community and accountable to voters.”
Chavez is seeking to represent the 76th California Assembly District, which includes the cities of Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad and Encinitas. The Chavez campaign is focused 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.
