EHJC is proud to endorse Georgette Gomez for United States Congress, District 53.
The daughter of working-class immigrants, Georgette learned at an early age the importance of giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate. After attending Serra High and graduating from SDSU, Georgette dedicated her career and volunteer time to make our communities better places to live and raise families.
The first LGBTQ Latina elected San Diego City Council President, Georgette’s legislative accomplishments include expanding affordable housing, strengthening protections for low-income renters, leading the implementation of San Diego’s landmark Climate Action Plan and delivering millions in new funding for community priorities including street repairs, parks, and libraries.
A longtime community organizer, Georgette is a former associate director of the Environmental Health Coalition, where she led the Toxic-Free Neighborhoods Campaign to protect kids from lead paint and keep polluting industries out of residential communities. Earlier in her career, Georgette worked as a victims’ advocate for survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
If elected to Congress, we know Georgette will continue being a champion for Environmental Justice, investing in public transit and infrastructure and access to clean air and water for all, just as she was on City Council, as Council President and as Chair of MTS.
