RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA — Lesli Gooch, candidate for California’s 31st Congressional District, announced the official endorsement of long time Inland Empire resident and current Mayor of the City of Fontana, Acquanetta Warren.

“Inland Empire residents need a Member of Congress who will fight for us. I’m proud to support Lesli Gooch because she is the only candidate in the 31st District with the experience necessary to navigate the Washington bureaucracy and fight for our small businesses. I know she’ll be relentless when it comes to advocating for the Inland Empire,” said Fontana Mayor Acquanetta Warren.

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Mayor Warren. I look forward to working with her to ensure the Inland Empire is open for business, modeling her success in Fontana. Our residents deserve good paying jobs and real economic opportunities,” said Congressional candidate Lesli Gooch.

Mayor Warren was first appointed to the Fontana City Council in 2002 where she was re-elected in 2004 and 2008. In 2010, Warren became the first female and the first African American Mayor of Fontana. She has dedicated her service to Fontana by promoting a business friendly city with her “Fontana is open for business” campaign which has escalated Fontana to being ranked 4th in California for its consistent growth in retail sales in the past 5 years. Apart from her elected office in Fontana, Warren has worked for over 20 years for the City of Upland, currently as their Deputy Director for Public Works, managing the city’s infrastructure maintenance, landscaping, streets, parks, sidewalks, facilities, and much more.

After officially announcing her candidacy to fill Congressman Gary Miller’s seat on February 19, Lesli Gooch has quickly developed momentum in endorsements and fundraising strength. Mayor Warren’s endorsement adds to a growing list of respected leaders including 31st District Congressman Gary Miller, San Bernardino County Supervisor Gary C. Ovitt, and Frank Williams who currently serves as Chairman of the Housing Authority of San Bernardino County.

Inland Empire native Lesli Gooch, a former Senior Policy Director in the U.S. House of Representatives, is a transportation, infrastructure and financial services policy expert.  She has spent the past 15 years representing the residents of San Bernardino County at our Nation’s Capital, fighting for the resources necessary to stabilize the housing market and put Inland Empire families back to work.
