Encinitas Mayor James Bond is endorsing Carlsbad City Councilwoman in her candidacy for State Assembly.
Mayor Bond said, “Farrah’s experience and perspective as both a small business owner and local elected official is most refreshing and desperately needed in state government. That is why I am proud to endorse her and be a part of her team.”
Douglas’ campaign is chaired by Assemblyman Martin Garrick, the incumbent who is retiring due to term limits; Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall, who works closely with Douglas on the City Council; County Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, who will be retiring in January of 2013 after 20 years of service on the Board of Supervisors; and businessman and former Lincoln Club Chairman Tom Sudberry.
“I am very honored to have the trust and confidence of Mayor Bond,” said Douglas. “I am running to get Sacramento off the backs of our families, small businesses and local governments – it’s humbling to have the support of Mayor Bond.
Douglas, her husband Rick and their young son, fled Iran during the 1979 Islamic Revolution. They have lived in Oceanside and Carlsbad for three decades and own a printing business.
