San Diego City Councilwoman Barbara Bry has endorsed her colleague Georgette Gómez in the race for California’s 53rd congressional district.

“These are difficult times in Washington. Now more than ever, San Diego needs champions in Congress like Georgette Gómez who will fight for our community and get things done to expand affordable housing, strengthen public education and take action on climate, said Bry, who is in her second term and is a candidate for Mayor in 2020..

“Georgette is proven, prepared and passionate about serving the people — exactly who we need representing us in the United States Congress,” said Bry.

Gómez is President of the San Diego City Council, chair of the Metropolitan Transit System and a former community organizer. She has also been endorsed by Rep. Juan Vargas, State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliott and Chula Vista Councilman Steve Padilla.

Other candidates in the March 3 primary include Navy veteran Jose Caballero, community organizer Joaquin Vazquez, and Sara Jacobs, a policy advisory and a granddaughter of Qualcomm co-founder Irwin Jacobs. Jacobs finished a close second to Rep. Mike Levin in the 49th District in 2018.
