Desert Sun Endorses Benoit for Senate

This just in from the John Benoit for State Senate Campaign:

Yesterday, The Desert Sun endorsed Assemblyman John J. Benoit for the 37th State Senate District, praising Benoit as a "consensus builder" and agreeing with Benoit’s political priorities in keeping taxes low and promoting higher education to stimulate local job growth.

The newspaper's editorial board highlighted Benoit’s accomplishments in the State Assembly as reason to continue "building rapport across the aisle" in the State Senate:

"Early in his legislative career, he helped cut $8 billion in taxes from the state budget. The cut reduced the budget impact to cities from $800 million to $137 million. That type of leadership will be needed as the state continues to eye local coffers for ways to balance statewide deficits. Thus far, Benoit has co-authored legislation to increase the homeowners’ property tax exemption for senior citizens, worked to add judges, require day-care centers to disclose past safety violations, and he pushed for state legislation to force the federal government to reimburse California for money spent incarcerating undocumented criminals."

"It truly means a tremendous amount to have this respected publication weigh in on this race and endorse my candidacy," commented Assemblyman Benoit. "I look forward to continuing a strong record of accomplishment by serving Riverside County’s growing population in the State Senate."
