2024 March Election Endorsements
Nora Vargas For San Diego Board of County Supervisor, District 1.
EHJC is proud to endorse Chairwoman Nora Vargas for re-election to the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to represent District 1. EHJC endorsed Chairwoman Vargas in 2020, when she first ran for Supervisor and won. She is the first Latina and woman of color to serve on the Board. Throughout her tenure, she has fought for social and environmental justice for the more than 600,000 Southbay residents she represents. She worked hand and hand with environmental justice advocates to reduce the amount of cancer causing toxins polluters are allowed to release into the air we breathe. As the first Latina Chair on SANDAG, she helped pass plans and funding that will improve public transportation for the San Diegans who need it most. She is a proven and accomplished leader and we trust she will continue the fight for justice in her next term. To learn more about Chairwoman Vargas, click here.
