Nathan Fletcher, Assemblymember, California's 75th Assembly District
"Scott Peters is smart, capable, has the right experience, is in it for the right reasons, and he’s a good man... Congressional dysfunction is at an all-time high because of hyper-partisanship. We need a leader like Scott who cares more about results than rhetoric ... If you backed me for Mayor because you want leaders who put people ahead of party politics, then I urge you to vote for Scott Peters, too.”
Susan Davis, Congresswoman, 53rd Congressional District
"I've worked closely with Scott for many years and have admired his thoughtful, balanced, collaborative approach to solving our region's issues. On the federal issues, Scott is pro-choice, strong on the environment, and committed to protecting middle-class values and preserving Social Security."
Toni Atkins, Assemblymember, California's 76th Assembly District
"Scott is a smart, caring, trustworthy leader who puts people first. He has a base of supporters that spans the political spectrum because they know he is an effective advocate. He doesn’t fight for headlines; he fights to get things done."
Lynn Schenk, Former Congresswoman, 49th Congressional District
"As the Congresswoman who represented much of this district some years ago, I know what it takes for our area to have a respected voice in Congress in addition to that of Susan Davis. Scott Peters has the unique combination of personal skills and public policy background that will make him an outstanding Representative and a future leader. Scott is a smart, savvy and thoughtful person who commands respect from all sectors –business, labor, Democrats, Republicans and Independents. I have worked with Scott when he was President of the city council and as Port Chairman. As a former port commissioner myself, I know it takes a special talent to forge compromise out of complex and competing interests. Time and again, Scott has demonstrated the patience, the intellect and the commitment to develop solutions which benefit society. He will be a credit to San Diego!"
Christine Kehoe, Senator, California's 39th Senate District
"Scott Peters is an effective and compassionate leader who would be a tremendous advocate for San Diego in Washington. We have worked together on a number of issues over the years, most recently on cleaning up San Diego Bay by reducing copper levels. He is a great match for the new 52nd Congressional District and the best candidate to defeat Brian Bilbray."
Dede Alpert, Former Senator/Assemblymember, California's 39th Senate District and 78th Assembly District
"I’ve known and worked with Scott for several years, while he was on the City Council, and during his volunteer public service to our community and I very gladly endorse his candidacy for Congress. He is thoughtful, compassionate and smart, and is one of the most skilled consensus builders I’ve ever worked with. His reasonable, determined style of leadership is sorely needed in Washington right now where the rancor has become so intense it is harming our country. I urge San Diegans in the new 52nd District to support him and send a new style of leadership to Washington."
Marty Block, Assemblymember, California's 78th Assembly District
"Scott has been a smart, reasonable voice for Democrats, and all San Diegans, throughout his years in public life. He is a dedicated public servant who has been willing to take on tough problems and work with people from all perspectives to create solutions. Now more than ever, Congress could use his steady, common-sense, consensus-building approach. And he would be a tremendous spokesperson for our region, calling attention to our needs as well as what we have to offer. San Diego needs to send Scott Peters to Washington!"
Todd Gloria, Councilmember, San Diego's 3rd City Council District
"Scott’s record of public service is strong, and I trust that experience has prepared him to represent San Diego’s interests well in Congress."
Ben Hueso, Assemblymember, California's 79th Assembly District
"Scott Peters provided visionary leadership during a time of monumental government reform, acted decisively during destructive fires, and guided San Diego's urban centers through historic renewal and revitalization. He is one of San Diego's most experienced, accomplished, and respected leaders."
Howard Wayne, Former Assemblymember, California's 78th Assembly District
"I'm really tired of the gridlock in Congress. Our representative is playing politics while the economy is in the tank. I know Scott Peters is a consensus builder who will work to get things done."
