Former Obama administration official Ammar Campa-Najjar is officially in the second round for mayor of San Diego County’s second largest city in November, after finishing third in first place.
“I just received a kind phone call from City Councilwoman Jill Galvez congratulating us on our victory. “I want to thank Jill for her service to our city and to the residents of District 2,” Campa-Najjar said on Tuesday. “I look forward to continuing to work together to improve Chula Vista.”
Campa-Najjar, who made a national appearance against former MP Duncan Hunter and then MP Darrell Issa in East County, will face City Council John McCann in the general election.
Campa-Najjar also thanked the other three Chula Vista mayoral candidates in the June 7 by-elections.
“I would also like to thank Zaneta Encarnacion, Rudy Ramirez and Spencer Cash for running and for their continued commitment to service,” said Campa-Najjar. “We may have fought hard, but it is only because we love this city deeply and care so much about its future.”
Chula Vista, with a population of 285,000, is the 73rd largest city in the United States, just behind St. Louis and just ahead of Newark.
