Chamber PAC releases candidate endorsements

Chamber PAC releases candidate endorsements


POSTED September 12, 2014 9:01 p.m.

The Turlock Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee Chairman Andrew Wigglesworth announced the official endorsements of candidates in the upcoming November election with unanimous support for Mike Brem for mayor, Bill DeHart for City Council, Forrest White for City Council, Congressman Jeff Denham, State Senator Tom Berryhill, State Senator Anthony Cannella, and Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen.

“This is a winning group of candidates,” said Wigglesworth. “It is proven, it is experienced, it is dynamic and it has Turlock's best interests at heart.”

According to the PAC, what made Superb Farms Chief Executive Officer Brem an attractive candidate for mayor is his support for Measure B to fix Turlock’s roads and his understanding of establishing a close working relationship with the Turlock Irrigation District and Stanislaus County.

 “Mike is clearly the best candidate for Mayor. He understands the City of Turlock, he knows agriculture, and he is a fighter for our area,” said Wigglesworth. “Brem knows that government isn’t just about sound bites.  He understands how people need to work together to move ahead.”

The PAC’s support of the remaining candidates – all incumbents – is a testament to the solid foundation upon which Turlock is operating in part due to the leadership of current City Council Members DeHart and White. 

 “We shouldn’t break up a winning team,” said Wigglesworth. “Both of these men have provided invaluable leadership for our city. We need to keep them on the job.”

In announcing the endorsements of Congressman Denham, Senator Berryhill, Senator Cannella and Assemblywoman Olsen, Wigglesworth said: “We are lucky to have these representatives in Washington and Sacramento. They know Turlock and have always been there when we have called on them.”

TABPAC advocates on behalf of the business community by informing elected officials and candidates for elective office representing the Turlock area on city, regional and state policy issues and related concerns.  The PAC endorses local and state candidates for office and is governed by an 11-member Board of Directors.
