On Thursday, campaign manager David Hernandez and I, attended an endorsement conference held by the 45th Assembly District Republican Central Committee.
I competed against fellow Republican Susan Shelley for the endorsement by speaking and taking questions from the committee members. The event lasted two hours, Susan and I discussed our positions and our campaign strategy at length. After the presentations, the committee went into closed session and debated the merits of each candidate along with the viability of each campaign.
When the vote was taken, I was very happy to learn that I won the endorsement from the local Republican Central Committee!
I would like to thank Chairman Thomas Hanson and the members of the committee for their hospitality, and for putting on a very thorough and fair event.
