San Diego County CA— The San Diego County Gun Owners (SDCGO), a political action committee promoting Second Amendment rights, is congratulating its endorsed North County candidates who won seats in city and school board election races in the recent November general election.
SDCGO-endorsed North County winning candidates included: Amanda Rigby, reelection to Vista City Council; Michael Morasco, reelection to Escondido City Council, District 4; Keith Blackburn, reelection to Carlsbad City Council; Dane White, Escondido Union High School District; Lee DeMeo, Fallbrook Union High School District.
In addition, SDCGO-endorsed East County winning candidates included: Kristine Alessio, reelection to La Mesa City Council; Jim Miller, Cajon Valley Union School District. Also, SDCGO-endorsed South County winning candidates included: Richard Bailey, mayor, Coronado; Mike Diaz, Chula Vista City Council, District 4.
“It is crucial that voters elect candidates who will defend the rights of law-abiding citizens, stand strong in support of the Second Amendment and oppose senseless gun control laws,” said Michael Schwartz, executive director, SDCGO. “We congratulate these local candidates and were proud to support them because they will uphold the Second Amendment and the rights of gun owners, oppose all attempts to infringe on the rights of the people to keep and bear arms and advocate enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime.”
Schwartz said each candidate was interviewed in person and research was completed on their voting record, as well as their public comments and character. “By educating voters on which local candidates value rights, we gave San Diegans the opportunity to help get the right people elected,” Schwartz said. “We are creating positive change.”
