ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. – – Diane Dixon announced another key endorsement in her campaign for Supervisor today as she announced the endorsement of long-time Republican leader and current State Senator Pat Bates.
“Diane Dixon is the conservative voice we need on the Board of Supervisors,” said Senator Bates. “Orange County is a special place and it needs a conservative who possesses the knowledge and experience at the local level to be effective in dealing with policy at the county level. Diane’s combination of real-world business experience and record of accomplishments on the city council make her the best choice for Supervisor. She is ready to lead as soon as she is elected.”
In addition to serving in the State Senate, where she has served as Senate Republican Leader, Senator Pat Bates served as an Orange County Supervisor and Mayor of Laguna Niguel.
Dixon recently announced endorsements from former U.S. Representative Mimi Walters, Assemblywoman Laurie Davies, Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, former Huntington Beach Councilman Tito Ortiz and the Lincoln Club of Orange County.
Katrina Foley was elected to the Board of Supervisors in a low turnout special election to fill the vacated seat of Supervisor Michelle Steel. The vote was split among multiple candidates which allowed liberal Foley the opportunity to win the election without a majority.
