San Diego Labor Leader Wins State Assembly Race in a Landslide


Lorena Gonzalez, 41, secretary-treasurer of the San Diego-Imperial Counties Labor Council, defeated rival Steve Castaneda on Tuesday in a special election to fill the vacant 80th Assembly District in California, the U-T San Diego reports.

‘I'm humbled by the broad support I have received,’ Gonzalez said in an interview shortly after she received a congratulatory call from Assembly Speaker John Pérez, D-Los Angeles.
‘Now it's time to get down to the business of creating jobs, protecting health care and improving our schools.’
