Senators Steve Knight and Tony Strickland Endorse Jesse Petrilla for Assembly
ORANGE COUNTY, CA – Thursday, February 20, 2014 – State Senator Steve Knight and former State Senator Tony Strickland today endorsed Councilman Jesse Petrilla for California State Assembly, District 73.
Senators Knight and Strickland join Senator Joel Anderson along with former Senator John Lewis in the
growing list of Southern California leaders supporting Jesse’s campaign for State Assembly.
Commenting on the endorsements, Senator Anderson, Vice-Chair of the Senate Public Safety Committee, remarked “Jesse’s growing list of endorsements is no surprise when one looks at his solid track record of upholding Republican values as an elected official. He has never voted to raise taxes, and his city has ended each fiscal year with a surplus during his tenure.” Senator Anderson continued, “Jesse is a fighter for the taxpayers, and is exactly who we need to see in Sacramento.”
An Officer in the Army National Guard, Jesse deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. He is also an Orange County small business owner and City Council Member in Rancho Santa Margarita. His wife Vesna recently gave birth to their first child in early February.
