Cupertino – Meg Whitman, Republican candidate for Governor, today announced the endorsement of 37 mayors, former mayors and council members from throughout California.

Whitman said she is honored to receive the endorsement of these dedicated local officials who understand how the state’s wasteful spending and mismanagement hurts local communities. She is eager to tap their creativity and experience to help her set a new agenda for California.

“We share the same vision for California – one with employment opportunities, a responsive government and an improved education system,” Whitman said. “Working together, we can restore California’s economy and ensure the well-being of our communities and families.”

“California needs a leader like Meg Whitman,” said Curt Pringle, Mayor of Anaheim. “She has real-world experience creating jobs and managing complex budgets. She will bring a fresh perspective to Sacramento and be a strong advocate for local communities.”

The list also includes four mayors who have previously endorsed Whitman – Mayor Pringle, former Fresno Mayor Alan Autry, former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan and Fresno Mayor Ashley Swearengin.
