City Council candidate Chris Cate picked up the endorsement of longtime homeless advocate Father Joe Carroll, whose organization Father Joe’s Villages runs rehabilitation programs throughout San Diego.

San Diego City Council candidate Chris Cate.

“Chris Cate cares about people in need, he cares about this community, and he’s running for Council for the right reasons — to make our City better. That’s why I support Chris Cate for City Council” said Carroll in a statement.

Cate is a former small businessman who started an auto glass repair business while attending college at San Diego State University. He later worked at City Hall as  a policy adviser to then council member, now Mayor Kevin Faulconer.

“It is a huge honor to be endorsed by Father Joe, who has given so much to better San Diego. Father Joe’s Villages have been a great success and have become a national model for transitional housing facilities,” said Cate, who is running in District 6.

“I look forward to working with the city council and our new mayor to ensure we are effectively spending city resources to better the lives of San Diegans.”
