Their endorsement tells me that they recognize that I am the best candidate to bring the desperately needed resources to create jobs, fair housing, and improve the education disparities in the city. I will work very hard and personally with city officials to make sure that under my watch this great City of San Bernardino will not be on the list for highest foreclosures, rate of unemployment, and high school dropout rates, but will be on the list of best improved for increase in jobs, community development , increased test scores, and solvent new homeownership. I reverently look forward to helping make San Bernardino a better place for us all to live.”
