After interviewing five candidates that are running for Assembly District 25 in the 2014 race, the Santa Clara Chamber PAC (SCCPAC) has endorsed Milpitas City Council Member Armando Gomez for Assembly District 25. Dave Tobkin, Co-Chair of the SCCPAC said, “Each candidate expressed creative ideas on how to improve and assist the business community in our district but City Council Member Armando Gomez rose to the top. Not only does he have 11 years of experience as a Milpitas City Council Member, he has also served as Mayor Chuck Reed’s Budget Director. We were impressed with his understanding of the business community’s issues as well as the State’s budget challenges.
San Jose City Council Member Kansen Chu, Retired Fremont Police Chief Craig Steckler, Businesswoman Teresa Cox, all democrats and Businessman Robert Brunton, the lone Republican, were also interviewed. The top two vote-getters, regardless of party, will be decided on the June 3, 2014 Primary Election with a final determination made by voters on the November 4, 2014 General Election.
