CHICO, CA – After visiting Chico yesterday to host a town hall with local community and business leaders, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today earned the endorsements of Butte County Supervisor Steve Lambert and Chico City Councilman Larry Wahl.
“Carly’s personal experience in business has shown her just how important it is to focus on creating jobs and growing the economy by supporting family-owned businesses,” said Lambert. “Californians can rest assured that she will stand up for small businesses across California and the nation as a member of the U.S. Senate.”
Lambert, the owner of Lambert Feed and Garden in Oroville, was elected to the Butte County Board of Supervisors in 2008, where he represents District 4. He was previously a member of the Paradise City Council and served as the city’s mayor from 2001 to 2002. He has also been a director for the Butte County Farm Bureau and is a member of the Butte County Cattlemen’s Association.
Added Wahl, “Carly shares our commitment to fiscal responsibility, and I am certain she will bring the kind of change we need to Washington. After seeing her in action here in Chico and talking with her about our urgent need to keep a laser focus on job creation and economic growth, there is no doubt in my mind that Carly will be a terrific advocate for us in the U.S. Senate, and I am proud to endorse her today.”
Wahl has served on the Chico City Council for three terms and was previously chairman of the Chico City Planning Commission. In addition, Wahl owns and operates three UPS stores in Chico. Wahl also served in the United States Navy and is a veteran of the Vietnam War.
“I very much appreciated the opportunity to talk with Chico-area residents yesterday, and I’m thrilled to have earned the endorsements of both Supervisor Lambert and Councilman Wahl,” said Fiorina. “It’s clearly time for a change in direction in Washington, and that begins by sending new representation to stand up for California in the U.S. Senate. I am confident that together, we will fire Barbara Boxer this November.”
