This release came in yesterdayÂ afternoon from the Phu Nguyen Campaign:
COSTA MESA â€” Local Police & Firefighters today announced Phu Nguyen is their recommendation for the 68th Assembly seat at a press conference in Costa Mesa.Â Todayâ€™s endorsement for Nguyen, a small businessman and entrepreneur is the latest in a string of major endorsements his campaign has received in this highly contested race.
â€œPhuâ€™s hard work during this campaign and commitment to public safety won us overâ€”but we also know his opponent extremely wellâ€”and we know that he is not fit for service in the State Assembly,â€ said Wayne Quint, Jr., President of the Association for Orange County Deputy Sheriffâ€™s.
â€œNguyen knows the issues facing the district and thinks outside the box to solve them,â€ said Tim Visian, President of the Costa Mesa Firefighters Association. â€œQuite simply, he gets it.â€
â€œIâ€™m honored to stand beside the leaders of the brave men and women who keep our communities safeâ€”and to have earned their support for my campaignâ€ said Nguyen.Â â€œ The most basic role of government is to keep its citizens safe and that means locking up offenders with stiff sentences.Â
â€œAs the next Assemblymember for the 68th District Iâ€™m going to make sure these brave men and woman have every tool they needâ€ Nguyen continued.
