Due to COVID-19, California allowed more time before finalizing primary election results.
Nearly 60 days after the election, Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh announce that the March 3 primary election results have been certified, confirming her as the sole Republican candidate on the November General Election ballot for California State Senate District 23.
State Senate District 23 covers the Pass area, Hemet, Menifee, San Jacinto, Big Bear City, Big Bear Lake, Highland, Loma Linda, Redlands, Rancho Cucamonga, most of San Bernardino and Yucaipa.
“I am honored to be the people’s choice to keep conservative, commonsense representation for our district. Democrats have a super majority in our state and we desperately need the voice of reason in California politics,” Bogh said. “I was in the top two with over 52,000 votes despite a three-way split for the Republican vote and two Democrat opponents. This massive support confirms that District 23 wants to lower the cost of living for Californians and bring balance back to Sacramento.”
“Though we are reaching the end of the COVID-19 crisis, recovery from its impacts on our economy, infrastructure, and health will take long-term planning and strong leadership,” Bogh said. “As a small businesswoman and Realtor, I understand that a functioning economy is the only way to ensure good-paying jobs are available for Californians.”
Housing, homelessness, jobs, and education are top issues of concern to Inland Empire residents.
The COVID-19 epidemic has further proven the need for California’s legislature to reduce bureaucratic barriers and get real work done tackling these areas.
