SAN BERNARDINO (November 2, 2015) - Today, Assembly Member Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) announced key local endorsements for her re-election campaign from all mayors in the 47th Assembly District, which include: Mayor Acquanetta Warren, City of Fontana; Mayor Deborah Robertson, City of Rialto; Mayor Darcy McNaboe, City of Grand Terrace; Mayor Richard DeLaRosa, City of Colton; and Mayor Carey Davis, City of San Bernardino.

“Cheryl Brown has cut through partisanship to find solutions that work for the 47th Assembly District and move the state forward," stated Mayor of Fontana, Acquanetta Warren. “She is a tremendously dedicated leader who has delivered resources and jobs to our community. I am proud to continue my support for her re-election to the State Assembly.”

“I am proud to endorse Assembly Member Brown for re-election to the 47th Assembly District,” stated Mayor Deborah Robertson, City of Rialto. “Through her help and support, our city gained control of the Rialto Municipal Airport to begin the first step of developing the Renaissance planned community, a new project that will promote economic development, create thousands of jobs and construct a variety of new housing in our city.”

“I am supporting Assembly Member Brown for re-election and I encourage others to do so as well,” stated Mayor Darcy McNaboe, City of Grand Terrace. “Coming from a small business background, she has focused her efforts on improving access to capital, enhancing workforce development, and streamlining some of the state’s regulatory processes. She understands the needs of our community, and has a passion for helping others and improving the quality of life for her constituents.”

“As our current Assembly Member we need to keep Cheryl Brown in Sacramento fighting for us,” said Mayor Richard DeLaRosa, City of Colton.  “As a member of the Veterans Standing Committee, she has fought for more services for veterans and their families. As Chair of Aging and Long-Term Care, she has relentlessly advocated on behalf of our senior population by sponsoring legislation to improve the quality of healthcare services for our seniors. And as a small business owner herself, she knows what it is like to try and meet payroll, so she has worked relentlessly to increase access to credit and investment, while reducing unnecessary, burdensome regulations. She has proven that she can make a positive change and that is why I am endorsing her, and I look forward to continuing to work with her in the future.”

“I am endorsing Assembly Member Cheryl R. Brown for re-election because she has been a true champion for our community,” stated Mayor Carey Davis, City of San Bernardino.  “As our state representative, she has been dedicated to fighting for solutions to help our city move forward and build a strong local economy for our families. Her devotion and leadership to the City of San Bernardino has been invaluable and I’m proud to give her my full support.”

Winning her election in 2012 and re-election in 2014, Assembly Member Brown has helped create jobs in the Inland Empire, provide opportunities for students attending local colleges, and has brought needed resources to fix our aging transportation infrastructure.

Among her many accomplishments, Assembly Member Brown is a champion for the elderly and the disabled. As Chair of the Aging and Long-Term Care Committee, Assembly Member Brown wrote new laws that invest $4.9 million in General Fund dollars for Caregiver Resource Centers and additional funding for Long-Term Care and In-Home Support Services that will ultimately save the state billions of dollars in future medical costs.

As a former businesswoman, Assembly Member Brown helps Inland Empire small businesses succeed and create jobs.  She has been instrumental in helping local businesses qualify for over $600,000 in tax credits, all while voting to increase the minimum wage and passing a budget that is balanced and builds a reserve to secure California’s fiscal future.

The election is scheduled for California’s Presidential Primary Election on June 7, 2016.
