Gloria’s Campaign for San Diego Mayor Receives National Spotlight for Historic Candidacy
SAN DIEGO, CA – With just 31 days until the November election when San Diegans will elect a new Mayor, California State Assemblymember Todd Gloria, candidate for San Diego Mayor, is drawing national attention for his historic candidacy and potential historic election as the city’s first person-of-color and first LGBTQ chief executive. In a story published yesterday, national news outlet NowThis News featured Gloria, calling him a “Face of Change” and a “candidate who could change the face of America.”
“Electing San Diego’s first person-of-color and first LGBTQ Mayor will send a strong message throughout our city about what is possible today,” said Assemblymember Todd Gloria. “As a kid who grew up in this community looking for role models and people who looked like me in public office, I carry the reality of our campaign breaking these barriers with tremendous humility and hope.”
