The Monterey County Deputy Sheriff’s Association has unanimously endorsed Regina Gage for District 2 Supervisor.
“Regina Gage, an experienced public servant, has the wisdom and insight to make the right decisions as County Supervisor. We believe she will serve District 2 with distinction and honor, putting her constituents first. We are not only public safety officers, but we are also members of the community.” wrote Acting DSA President William Hija on behalf of the DSA.
“I’m incredibly grateful for the deputy sheriffs support, and the outpouring of broad support for my election in general,” said Regina. “North County needs an accountable, accessible leader. I’ve been to every District 2 community talking to hundreds of voters – no one even know who their Supervisor is or what he is doing. North County simply doesn’t receive its fair share of attention or money, including the resources to address crime, gangs and youth violence,” continued Regina.
Further demonstrating her strong position in the race, Regina has to date raised over $170,000 and has earned the support of the Monterey County Central Labor Council representing over 37,000 working families. Regina is honored to be supported by residents and community leaders including Senator Bill Monning, Supervisor Jane Parker, former Salinas Mayor Pro Tem Jyl Lutes, fourth generation farmer Glenn Church, State Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, former California Schools Superintendent Delaine Eastin, Aromas Water District Boardmember Wayne Norton, retired Army Reserve First Sergeant and County resident Bob Coble, and former Monterey County Deputy District Attorney Ann Hill, among others.
Regina’s leadership, hard work in the community and accessibility are a major strength in her campaign,making her the right fit for today’s North County communities. Recent independent polling on the state of race conducted by Fairbank, Maslin, Mullin, Metz & Associates show Regina with a 14-point advantage over her opponent.
