Pasadena, CA – After a successful five-day, six-city campaign road trip on Independence Day weekend, California gubernatorial candidate John Chiang will head to the Inland Empire on Saturday, July 15th, 2017. Chiang will take to Redlands to meet with local activists, then will attend a luncheon with over 100 activists and leader in Fontana, along with elected officials and community stakeholders who have formed a committee to elect Chiang for governor.
Chiang’s road trip is inspired by the California road sign shaped like the shovels that the forty-niners brought to California with the mission to unearth a better future for their families. They came from every corner of the earth – to discover the California Dream, one that was built on the foundation of this unique experiment.
On the morning of Saturday, July 15th, after joining local Redlands Democratic Club for a breakfast meet and greet, Chiang will keynote an event hosted by “Inland Empire for John Chiang.” Of the 100 people expected to attend the luncheon, several elected officials will also welcome Chiang, State Senator Connie Leyva, Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes, and Fontana Mayor Pro-Tem Jesse Sandoval. This event is supported by Councilman Tahan who has endorsed Treasurer Chiang. Councilman Tahan says that Chiang is the only candidate who knows how to support every day, working families in the Inland Empire.
“I am excited to welcome John Chiang back to the Inland Empire. Though John is well aware of the many issues facing our local families and communities, I am confident that he will continue to listen to constituents in our region both today and in the months and years ahead. I would like to thank John for his dedication to fighting for working families, education, our environment, and job growth and look forward to working with him on these important issues in the future,” explained State Senator Connie M. Leyva.
While in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, Chiang plans to share his record and how he will continue to fight for the communities in the Inland Empire as governor.
“It is so great to be here with the folks who represent the Inland Empire and some of our hardest working elected officials. This is what political participation looks like – members of the community coming together with their local and statewide leaders to discuss ways in which we can move forward as a community and state,” expressed Chiang.
Since kicking off his year long road trip on June 6th, Chiang has made stops in ten counties including Los Angeles, San Francisco, El Dorado, Orange, Santa Barbara, Kern, Fresno, and Alameda Counties.
