CHULA VISTA, CA — In San Diego County, the following candidates for 2014 attended the evening Meet and Greet hosted by the Filipino American Republican Club of San Diego and Friends in the home of Veronica and Oscar Sa. Garcia on August 21, 2014.
The following candidates who attended were Neel Kashkari, California Governor; Ken Gosselin, San Diego Superior Court Judge, Seat 25; Honorable Carl De Maio, U.S. Congressman, 52nd District; Chris Cate, San Diego City Council, District 6; Honorable Jerry Rindone, Chula Vista Mayor; Honorable John McCann, Chula Vista City Council, Seat 1; Dan Smith, Chula Vista City Council, Seat 2.
In September 2014, the above candidates were all endorsed. Each candidate will serve to their best ability for accountability, transparency, integrity and credibility. The ATIC acronym method was developed by the respective publisher and editor *Bobby Reyes of Los Angeles County.
Interesting Filipino fun factoid: Candidate Neel Kashkari’s girlfriend is a full blooded Filipina American, Christine Ong and Oscar Sa. Garcia was the first Filipino home that Kashkari attended in San Diego. We have mestizo Filipino American Chris Cate of Spanish/European Caucasian descent born in San Diego County and has now been 30 days officially engaged to his Pangasinan girlfriend. If elected he will be the second Filipino American elected as San Diego City Council alongside with the current San Diego City Council mestizo Todd Gloria but maybe the first Filipino in District 6 to be elected. Dan Smith who’s wife is a Filipina American descent Kayla Smith. All others and current are friends of the Filipino’s, API’s and people of color. FAR embraces multi-ethnic communities.
On November 4, 2014 on Tuesday will be the ongoing vote for the General Election. We encourage all Filipino Americans and API’s to make a difference and vote or request for absentee ballot immediately. Filipino Americans and API’s are encourage to forward this to their friends, neighbor and colleagues. The current statistics on the Census Bureau exceeds that the Filipino Americans are the highest propensity of API’s in the County of San Diego and one of the Top API’s in the State of California.
