San Francisco – (March 31, 2016) Secretary of State Alex Padilla, Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer and Assemblymember Bill Dodd join Supervisor Scott Wiener’s growing list of endorsers.
Wiener’s latest endorsements reflect the growing support among Democratic Assembly and State Senate members, and statewide office holders, who recognize Wiener’s determination and ability to take on and achieve results on the toughest issues facing our communities.
The future of our education system, the state of our environment, the immediate and future infrastructure improvements facing our transportation system, and the need for more affordable housing all require legislators with the demonstrated record of effective leadership and results that Supervisor Wiener exemplifies.
In a statement of support, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, the fourth constitutional officer to endorse Wiener said "California needs Scott Wiener's leadership on the key issues facing our state, from quality healthcare to climate change to income inequality. Scott is willing to tackle tough issues because it's the right thing to do for our state. I wholeheartedly endorse Scott's candidacy for State Senate."
“Scott will bring a needed focus to environmental protection and water saving concerns. He has already demonstrated that leadership and forward thinking approach on the Board of Supervisors by requiring water recycling and solar panels in new developments, and will be a leader on those issues in the state senate,” stated Assemblymember Bill Dodd.
Wiener’s newest endorsers join the Democratic Party, the California League of Conservation Voters, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Attorney General Kamala Harris, Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, State Senator Mark Leno, Board of Equalization Member Fiona Ma, Assessor Carmen Chu, and many others.
