Praises General Roth as "one of the most effective" State Senators to ever represent Inland Southern California
(Norco, CA) -- General Richard Roth's campaign announced today that Norco City Councilmember Kathy Azevedo has endorsed General Roth for re-election to the State Senate.
"I am excited to endorse General Richard Roth for re-election to the State Senate," said Norco Councilmember Kathy Azevedo. "General Roth has been one of the most effective advocates to ever represent our region, and has worked hard to ensure Norco and Inland Southern California receive their fair share from the State. I know General Roth will continue to stand up for us in the Legislature as a bipartisan leader. I am proud to support his re-election."
Councilmember Azevedo has lived in Norco her entire life, owns her own small business and has served on the City Council since 2003, including twice as Mayor. She has been a passionate, visionary leader for Norco, fighting to preserve the City's moniker as "Horsetown USA." Having fought and survived breast cancer twice, she leads Support Sisterz, a local nonprofit which empowers women in Norco and Corona who have been diagnosed with breast cancer by providing emotional and financial support as they go through cancer treatments. Councilmember Azevedo will retire this year after 12 years of service on the Norco City Council, and will continue to serve Norco and Riverside County as a small business owner and nonprofit and community leader.
"I am truly honored to receive such strong support from Councilmember Kathy Azevedo, one of Riverside County's most resilient and well-regarded public servants," said General Roth. "Councilmember Azevedo and I share a fundamental belief that public service must be about working together, and I am looking forward to continuing to make Norco and our region's issues a top priority in Sacramento."
With just under one year to go before the 2016 general election, numerous community leaders and public servants have come out early in strong support of General Roth's re-election to the State Senate. Councilmember Azevedo joins Norco Mayor pro Tem Kevin Bash and fellow Councilmember Berwin Hanna in endorsing General Roth's re-election. All three are Republicans. In their endorsements, Mayor pro Tem Bash also praised General Roth as "a true bipartisan leader," and Councilmember Hanna praised General Roth's "unrivaled track record of crafting commonsense solutions" to the region and State's most complex issues.
