Cajon Valley School Union District President Justin Slagle has endorsed Randy Voepel for the 71st Assembly District.
"There are few elected officials with as strong a record as Randy Voepel," said Slagle. "As Mayor, he's done an excellent job of ensuring Santee maintains fiscal discipline, implements pro-business policies, and prioritizes public safety. He will be a strong advocate for this region and for the issues that matter most to this district."
"Justin's role with the Cajon Valley Union School District has established him as a local leader when it comes to education," said Voepel. "I look forward to working with him when I am in the Assembly to find ways to establish greater local control for our schools."
