Today I am discontinuing my campaign for the race to be your Assemblymember for the 76th District.
The last 11 months you have given me the opportunity to talk to residents, small business and large corporation owners, students, senior citizens, Republicans, Democrats, and Decline to State/Independents about their needs, wants, and dreams. I will still continue to do that work as I have been before the campaign started.
My decision was made because the financial support to run a campaign is not at a level to be competitive. In addition, last week I was not endorsed by the Republican Party of San Diego County.
You have all been great supporters in so many large and small ways. For that I am grateful to you. My family has sacrificed during this time as well and I want to thank them. My commitment to Carlsbad and North County doesn't change.
See you around,
