June 2022 Primary Endorsements
Georgette Gomez for State Assembly District 80
As we continue to live with COVID-19 and we feel the impacts of the climate crisis more each day, we must elect strong candidates who are rooted in our communities to pass laws that will help our residents in real ways. That is why EHJC is proud to endorse Georgette Gomez for California State Assembly Member, District 80.
The daughter of working-class immigrants who grew up in Barrio Logan, Georgette understands the needs of San Diego’s South Bay neighborhoods and the burden of breathing polluted air every day. After attending Serra High and graduating from SDSU, Georgette dedicated her career and volunteer time to making our communities safer and healthier places to live, work, and raise a family.
Georgette was the first LGBTQ Latina elected San Diego City Council President. She expanded affordable housing, strengthened protections for low-income renters, championed the city’s landmark Climate Action Plan and delivered millions in new funding for community priorities including street repairs, parks, and libraries. She stood up to corporate polluters and fought for an updated Barrio Logan community plan that prioritized residents over profits.
Georgette is deeply rooted in the environmental justice movement. Georgette is a former associate director of the Environmental Health Coalition (EHC). Working at EHC, she led the Toxic-Free Neighborhoods Campaign to protect kids from lead paint and keep polluting industries out of residential communities. She stood up to corporate polluters and fought for an updated Barrio Logan community plan that prioritized residents over profits.
If elected to the State Assembly, EHJC knows Georgette will continue to champion environmental justice, invest in public transit and infrastructure, and access to clean air and water for all, just as she did on City Council, as Council President, and as Chair of MTS.
