Inland Empire, CA – April 26, 2010. 63rd Assembly Candidate, LT Commander (s) Paul Chabot, announces endorsement from Conservative Assemblyman Jim Nielsen.
Assemblyman Jim Nielsen, who serves as the State Assembly Vice Budget Chair announced,” Paul Chabot is the kind of leader Sacramento needs. Paul’s background in law enforcement, both as an officer and Parole Board Commissioner, gives him the experience to keep our streets safe. As a naval intelligence officer in Iraq , Paul battled to keep America secure. As an Assemblyman, he will fight to reduce taxes and to stop out-of-control spending and waste. I fully support and endorse LT Commander Paul Chabot.”
In 1978, Jim Nielsen was elected from the North State to his first of three terms in the State Senate, where he served as Senate Republican Leader from 1983-1987. In the Senate, Jim quickly established himself as a tough-on-crime conservative who championed the cause for lower taxes. He continues those strong trends today as an Assemblyman for California’s 2nd District and Vice Chair for the Assembly’s Budget Committee.
Chabot stated, “I appreciate the trust Assemblyman Nielsen has for my candidacy. I clearly understand the battles that lie ahead for me in Sacramento and knowing that our party has esteemed leaders, like Assemblyman Nielsen already on the front lines, ensures we have a fighting chance to right this ship before it’s too late. I look forward to serving the people of California, alongside my conservative allies so that our children have a California worth growing up in.”
Chabot has also been endorsed by Conservative Assemblyman Steve Knight and Assemblyman Danny Gilmore. Earlier this month, Chabot received the majority vote support from the district’s conservative California Republican Assembly delegation.
LT Commander Chabot (s), a former active duty special operations intelligence officer, is a leading candidate for the 63rd assembly seat currently held by Assemblyman Bill Emmerson who will step down due to term limits. Chabot resides in Rancho Cucamonga with his wife Brenda, and their three children.
