Editor's Note: Steve Danon is a candidate for County Supervisor in San Diego’s Third District. The following news release is from his political campaign party, Steve Danon for Supervisor - 2012.
[updated March 25] The original version of this news release listed Scripps Health. That was later removed because though Scripps Health is a member of the Downtown Partnership that sponsors the Jobs PAC, is not affiliated with the Jobs PAC itself.
Also, the news release was updated to reflect that Scott Maloni is the Chair of the Jobs PAC, not the Partnership.
The San Diego Jobs PAC, representing many local employers, today announced their endorsement of Steve Danon, who is a candidate for County Supervisor in San Diego’s Third District.
The San Diego Jobs PAC is focused on the importance of job creation and economic growth in the San Diego region. It represents some of San Diego County’s leading employers, including Scripps Health, Bridgepoint Education, Cox Communications, AT&T and many more.
“We are pleased to support Steve Danon for County Supervisor,” said Scott Maloni, Chair of the San Diego Downtown Partnership, the sponsor of the Jobs PAC. “We know that Steve understands the importance of opposing fees and regulations that will inhibit job-growth and supports incentives for businesses to relocate and create jobs within our community,” explained Maloni. “Steve has our full support.”
“I’m truly honored to have the support of many of our region’s biggest job-creators,” said Danon. “With nearly one in ten San Diegans out of work, my number-one priority is to promote job-growth,” Danon continued. “With my private-sector experience, having founded and built a local business, I know what it takes to help local businesses succeed, and I look forward to working with San Diego’s business community to create employment opportunities for San Diego residents – many of whom are struggling with under- or unemployment,” concluded Danon.
