Steve Glazer secures endorsements from a majority

of Walnut Creek City Councilmembers

Walnut Creek, CA—Candidate for State Senate Steve Glazer announced today he has secured endorsements from a majority of the Walnut Creek City Council, including Mayor Bob Simmons and Councilmembers Cindy Silva and Rich Carlston.  Glazer has also been endorsed by several former Walnut Creek elected officials including Mayors Ed Skoog and Sue McNulty Rainey. 

 “Walnut Creek is an important cornerstone of Senate District 7 and it means a lot to me to have the endorsements of these community leaders,” said Glazer.

Walnut Creek Mayor Bob Simmons said of Glazer, “Steve brings a combination of independent judgment and knowledge that he will use to ably represent Walnut Creek in Sacramento."

"I'm voting for Steve Glazer because his Clean Government Pledge will change California's political culture for the better,” said former Mayor Sue McNulty Rainey. “His promise not to accept any lobbyist gifts will ensure that his loyalty is to the people, not special interests.”

Recently Glazer called on his opponent to join him in pledging to curb special interest powers by refusing to accept gifts, meals and drinks from groups influencing the lawmaking process; a ban on accepting campaign contributions during times when most laws are passed; and a commitment to publicly release secret candidate questionnaires.  To date, his opponent has not taken the pledge or made her answers on questionnaires available to the public.

Glazer currently serves as the Mayor of Orinda and a Trustee of the California State University 23-campus system. During his tenure on the Orinda City Council, Glazer has helped balance budgets while making improvements to schools, libraries and roads.

The General Election will be held on May 19. 

State Senate District 7 includes the communities of Alamo, Antioch, Bay Point, Bethel Island, Blackhawk, Brentwood, Byron, Clayton, Concord, Danville, Diablo, Discovery Bay, Dublin, Lafayette, Livermore, Moraga, Oakley, Orinda, Pacheco, Pittsburg, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Sunol and Walnut Creek.
