More news in a press release from Larry Walker for State Senate

    Six More Local Leaders Back Larry Walker for State Senate

    Chino, California – San Bernardino County Auditor-Controller Larry Walker announced today that his campaign for State Senate has won the endorsements of six more local elected leaders.  The list includes Chino City Councilmember Glenn Duncan, Montclair Mayor Paul Eaton, Montclair Councilmember John Dutrey, Ontario City Councilmember Jim Bowman, Upland City Councilmember Brendan Brandt and Chaffey Joint Union High School District Boardmember Charles Uhalley.  Earlier this month, Walker announced the support of San Bernardino County Supervisors Josie Gonzales and Janice Rutherford.

    “After thirty years in local government, Larry Walker understands the importance of local control,” said Montclair Mayor Paul Eaton.  “The state government could learn a thing or two from the local governments of San Bernardino County.  I support Larry Walker for State Senate because he will always stand up for our local neighborhoods, not for Sacramento special interests.”

    “I endorse Larry Walker because he has been a great friend of education.  Larry Walker understands that educating our children is a comprehensive process – it’s about nutrition, about after school programs, about extra-curricular enrichment – and he will be a strong ally at the state level to provide us resources that the School Board can’t provide,” said Chaffey Join Union High School District Boardmember Charles Uhalley.  “From his time as Mayor of Chino to his time in County government, Larry Walker has always fought to make sure that our children’s education is fully funded, and I believe he will continue to do so in the State Senate.”

    “Larry Walker is a man of integrity and honesty, a man who you can always rely on to get things done,” said Upland City Councilmember Brendan Brandt.  “I endorse Larry Walker because he is the rare public servant with the vision that it will take to grow our economy, fix our budget, and preserve core public services.”

    Walker has represented large portions of State Senate District 32 as a local elected leader for over thirty years.  He currently represents all of San Bernardino County as the elected Auditor-Controller.  He previously represented the cites of Chino, Ontario, Montclair and a portion of Fontana for three terms on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors.  Prior to that, he served as a City Councilmember and Mayor in the City of Chino.  Larry, his wife Carri, and their sons Mac, Will, and Tyler, live in Chino.

    California’s 32nd State Senate District encompasses the cities of Colton, Fontana, Montclair, Ontario, Rialto, San Bernardino and part of Chino, and the unincorporated communities of Bloomington and Muscoy in San Bernardino County; and the City of Pomona in Los Angeles County.  The Special Primary Election to replace Congresswoman Gloria Negrete McLeod in the State Senate will be held on March 12.
