Newport Beach Mayors Endorse Leslie Daigle for Assembly
City leaders cite need for change in Sacramento
Newport Beach – Several former Newport Beach Mayors announced their endorsement of Leslie Daigle for State Assembly today. Daigle’s independence and willingness to challenge the status quo is gaining traction among leaders throughout out the District highlighted by today’s announcement.
“Leslie Daigle is a problem solver who thinks for herself,” stated former Newport Mayor Evelyn Hart. “Sacramento is full of legislators who take their orders from party leaders and the results have been disastrous. Leslie isn’t afraid to stand up to party leaders and special interests to get things done. She will be a breath of fresh air in the Assembly.”
Hart highlights a common sentiment among voters who regularly give current legislators approval ratings even lower than the Congress. Local leaders fare far better in similar polls and today’s endorsements will swing the momentum in Daigle’s favor.
Hart is joined by former Newport Mayors Clarence “Bus” Turner, Dennis O’Neil, Jan DeBay, Mike Henn, Steve Rosansky, John Cox, Milan Dostal, Tod Ridgeway, John Heffernan, John Noyes and Centenniel Mayor Don Webb. The City of Newport Beach is 106 years old.
“Leslie understands the issues facing local communities in the district,” former Mayor Turner said. “She has a track record of being a common sense problem solver and common sense isn’t too common in Sacramento these days.”
“People look to local leaders to help guide their choice of a candidate,” explained Daigle. “A long list of sitting legislators who are part of the Sacramento culture is not something voters find attractive these days. The state budget deficit is estimated to be $13 billion. On the other hand, I am proud to have the support of widely respected local officials who have a track record of serving the Community.”
Serving in her second term on the Newport Beach City Council, Daigle is a driving force for sound fiscal policies, public employee pension reform, support of the city’s entrepreneurs and risk-takers, effective service delivery, and protection of the city’s coastal and bay waters for both environmental and economic reasons.
