We endorse Phil Arballo for Congress

In exactly 6 months time Central Valley residents will be heading to the polls to cast their votes for who will represent California’s 22nd congressional district. California’s 22nd is located in the San Joaquin Valley and includes portions of both Fresno and Tulare counties. The new Gay Central Valley is making their first official political endorsement and we are throwing our shoulder behind the Democratic candidate Phil Arballo.

I actually attended his announcement event last year and I have to say I was impressed. He strikes me as a sincere and genuinely concerned about local issues that are important to the valley. He is a life long Democrat, unlike some in the Valley who claim to be Democrats when it’s convenient or beneficial for them, but vote and stand with the mean-spirited conservatives in our local governments. Phil Arballo will also not be the talking head and blind puppet that Devin Nunes is for the incompetent and disgraceful Donald.

We need new leadership in the 22nd and our choice is clear: Phil Arballo deserves a chance to represent us in Washington, D.C. We need to color the Central Valley a little more blue, or at least a little more purple, because the rabid red-meat Republicans aren’t the only ones who live and work and worship in the San Joaquin Valley. Join us in supporting Phil Arballo, consider making a donation to his campaign, and if you aren’t sure about him or who he is yet then check out his official campaign website.
