SAN BERNARDINO, CA (November 9, 2015) – Today, Assembly Member Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) received the endorsements from U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-San Bernardino) and U.S. Rep. Norma Torres (D-Fontana). Both members of Congress represent a majority portion of the 47th Assembly District.

“Cheryl Brown’s commitment to improving the economic vitality of our communities makes her the type of proven leader we need fighting for us in the State Assembly,” said U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar.  “I’m endorsing Assembly Member Brown because we need her continued advocacy on behalf of Inland Empire families in Sacramento.”

“I am happy to endorse Assembly Member Cheryl Brown for re-election to the State Assembly,” said U.S. Rep. Norma Torres. “She has worked tirelessly to empower our communities and improve the quality of life for working families. She has fought to improve our schools, create good jobs and offer assistance to homeowners facing foreclosure. Her extraordinary leadership has advanced the Inland Empire and helped the citizens of the 47th Assembly District and I’m confident that she will continue to work hard for the people she represents.”

U.S. Rep. Aguilar and U.S. Rep. Torres’s endorsements follow last week’s endorsement announcements from all mayors in the 47th Assembly District in support of Assembly Member Brown’s re-election campaign.

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.
