For the record, I post them as I get them. I haven't posted much from Mikels, because I haven't gotten much. If you have a press release or update from her, e-mail it to email@example.com . Same goes for other candidates ( Like Ferial Masry, who sends me everything they do!)
Word for word from the press release:
Retired Senator Wright Endorses
Jim Dantona for County Supervisor
Jim Dantona, candidate for County Supervisor for the 4th Supervisorial District, continues to build on the strong endorsements of an impressive bi-partisan coalition of State and local elected officials by adding Republican and former State and local representative Cathie Wright to his endorsement list. Wright served the constituents of Ventura County for twenty-two years as Simi Valley Mayor & Council Member, California State Assembly Member, and California State Senator.
"Dantona is a fighter,��? states Wright, "and he is persistent in fighting for what he believes. He has always fought for children with organizations like Baseballers Against Drugs, and he will continue to fight against partisanship and fight for the constituents of the 4th District.��?
Jim Dantona is a 23-year resident of Simi Valley, Founder and Chair of Baseballers Against Drugs, 30-year veteran of local, state and national government action, and recipient of the FBI Director's Community Leadership Award for the prevention of drug abuse. The 4th Supervisorial District includes the cities of Simi Valley and Moorpark and the unincorporated communities of Bell and Box Canyons, Somis and the Santa Susanna Knolls.
"Cathie Wright was always a strong and determined leader for our community,��? Dantona said. "She has always had my respect and I am truly honored to have earned her endorsement.��?
Cathie Wright is a multiple award recipient herself, including, among others, the Hunger Fighter Award from the California Hunger Action Coalition while serving in the State Assembly. A California Conservation Corps library in Simi Valley and California Department of Mental Health Technical Assistance Center in Sacramento were also named in her honor.
Wright is the latest to join a growing list of Republican and Democratic elected officials to back Dantona, including current Assembly member Audra Strickland and former Assemblyman Tony Strickland; current Simi Valley Mayor Pro-Tem Barbra Williamson and former Mayor Bill Davis; current Moorpark Mayor Patrick Hunter and former Mayor John Lane; Rancho Simi Valley Park and Recreation Board Members Veteran Simi Valley Police Detective Gene Hostetler and Jim Meredith; Simi Valley Board of Education President Janice DiFatta and Board Members Debbie Sandland and Rob Collins; Moorpark City Councilwoman Roseann Mikos, Camarillo Vice-Mayor Michael Morgan, Oxnard City Councilman Tim Flynn, Channel Islands Beach Community Service Director Jonathan Ziv, and former Ventura Mayor and Founder of SOAR Richard Francis.
