SANCHEZ RACKS UP ENDORSEMENTS FOR 2020 RUN FOR COUNTY SUPERVISOR
Former Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, who is running for Orange County’s 3rd Supervisor District, received high-powered endorsements from a number of current and former elected officials and community leaders. They include Members of Congress, Orange County Mayors, local School Board officials, and more.
Congressman Gil Cisneros
“I proudly endorse Loretta Sanchez for Supervisor. Loretta has fought on behalf of Orange County for over 20 years. Her commitment to serving the needs of our diverse communities and addressing our toughest issues is unparalleled. We need Loretta’s experienced and principled leadership now more than ever as we look for smart solutions to the homelessness crisis, ways to promote responsible development, and opportunities to improve our regional infrastructure and transportation systems. As Supervisor, she will be sure to deliver policy-based results for Orange County as she has for decades. She has my full support.”

One thing Loretta has been busy with these last two years is teaching “leadership” courses at Harvard to aspiring politicians. Also having followed the Carter hearings closely, Loretta has been working on two projects aimed at alleviating our housing/homelessness crisis:
She’s taken the lead in raising $5 million for a 30-“micro-units” permanent supportive housing project – probably in Santa Ana – for unaccompanied homeless women, one of the underserved segments of our homeless population.
And due to come on board probably in an Anaheim industrial area within 5-6 months, an ambitious factory project, employing “second chance” young adults (recently released from jail/prison) as well as secondary-school students wanting engineering experience, to build those celebrated “tiny houses” for people’s back yards.

I last saw congresswoman Loretta Sanchez back in August 2014. That’s when I was in Washington D.C. for a week of actions that capped a year of protests against the Obama Administration’s deportation policies, which culminated with the announcement of deferred action for parents of citizens and residents and the end of Secure Communities, the president’s flagship deportation program. We walked past each other in a hallway, and I wasn’t sure she recognized me. I turned to wave and she responded in kind
