I'm honored to accept the endorsement of the Filipino-American Chamber of Commerce Business Network. As an attorney helping small businesses, I know the struggles they face every day. On the Board of Supervisors, I'll fight for good jobs for all San Diegans, in every community.
I'm thankful for the endorsement from the Pacific Southwest Association of REALTORS®. Our housing crisis demands action, and that is why I have put forward a comprehensive 4-point plan to invest in rebuilding communities with improved roads, parks, transit and fire stations, so we can pave the way to the construction of tens of thousands of affordable units countywide.
Peter A. Andersen, Executive Committee Chair of the Sierra Club San Diego, said: “At a time when clean air and water are under attack from Washington, Rafa Castellanos understands the emergency we face and is ready to act. From fighting toxic cross-border pollution in the Tijuana River Valley to leading the charge to pass the Port's landmark Climate Action Plan, San Diego can count on Rafa Castellanos to tackle the climate crisis and protect our environment. The Sierra Club is proud to endorse Rafa Castellanos for County Supervisor."
Scott Laudner, San Diego County Probation Officers Association President, said: “Rafael Castellanos has shown his commitment to public safety and those who protect us every day as Port Commissioner. He understands that we are all safer when communities and law enforcement are working together as partners. That’s why the men and women of the San Diego County Probation Officers Association are proud to endorse Rafael Castellanos for County Supervisor.”
I am so proud of the endorsement from the Environmental Health and Justice Campaign. We have worked hard on so many issues, and have recently made huge progress with Mexico on the Tijuana River Valley's pollution. Hope for our beach communities!
I’m honored by the endorsement of the San Diego County Deputy District Attorneys Association and San Diegans Against Crime. I will always do what it takes to ensure that our communities and those who protect them work together for safety, dignity and justice for all.
Bryn Kirvin, Deputy District Attorneys Association President, said: “Rafael Castellanos will bring change to the Board of Supervisors and stand up for South Bay families. Rafael has delivered as Port Commissioner - creating jobs, cleaning up pollution and reducing homelessness – and he has what it takes to build a better, brighter future for our community. I look forward to working with Rafael to help Chula Vista, and all of South Bay, grow and thrive.”
We need serious action now to build new affordable housing so working families don’t get pushed out by the skyrocketing cost of living in San Diego. That’s why Rafa is running for County Supervisor and why he's proud to be endorsed by the YIMBY Democrats of San Diego County.
Chula Vista Mayor Mary Salas said: “Rafael Castellanos will bring change to the Board of Supervisors and stand up for South Bay families. Rafael has delivered as Port Commissioner - creating jobs, cleaning up pollution and reducing homelessness – and he has what it takes to build a better, brighter future for our community. I look forward to working with Rafael to help Chula Vista, and all of South Bay, grow and thrive.”
Rafael Castellanos Announces Strong Fundraising Numbers, Raising Over $290,000 In First Months Of County Supervisor Campaign
We need big, bold action - not half measures - to deliver the affordable housing working families in San Diego desperately need. My affordable housing plan offers hope to struggling working families and makes large-scale construction of desperately needed affordable housing possible. It includes $1 billion for neighborhood infrastructure improvements, which is the turbocharge needed to deliver tens of thousands of affordable homes throughout San Diego. If we don’t take action now, the housing crisis will continue to worsen and our workforce and kids will keep getting squeezed out of San Diego.
