The claim made by the Peninsula Politics Blog that Jackie Speier’s endorsement would prove disadvantageous to Jerry Hill in his bid for the 19th Assembly district seat is clearly misguided, and evidence of the author’s misconstrued judgment. The fact that Supervisor Hill has earned the respect and recognition of Congresswoman Speier shows he has support from the Democratic leadership in the district. The public backed Congresswoman Speier by 80% in the April special election and her endorsement will certainly convey to the voters a message of confidence in the abilities and experience of Supervisor Hill.
Jackie Speier is one of many elected officials who have publicly voiced their support for Jerry Hill. In conjunction with Congresswoman Speier, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, Assemblymembers Gene Mullin, Fiona Ma, Mark DeSaulnier, and Ira Ruskin have also formally endorsed Jerry due to his personal qualities and years of dedicated experience. Jerry Hill has also earned the support of many of his colleagues and fellow elected officials throughout the 19th district, including 53 of the 60 city council members and 11 of the 12 mayors (the 12th being his opponent).
Jerry Hill is also endorsed by the San Francisco Chronicle, Daily Journal, and San Mateo Daily News, which are the three main independent newspapers in the area. Finally, Jerry is the only candidate endorsed by both the Sierra Club and the California League of Conservation Voters.
I think Jerry Hill’s endorsements are a massive benefit, which further proves he is the right choice for Assembly.
