The Sandpiper endorses the following candidates for federal, state, and local offices on the basis of their contributions to the welfare of Del Mar citizens, their leadership on important regional issues, and their shared values.
There is one unique feature of the District 38 State Senate race worth pointing out, a result of recent redistricting. If Catherine Blakespear is elected, she will join Toni Atkins as our second State Senator since Toni has 2 more years left in her term. Having two strong women representing our district should be interesting and beneficial.

California State Senate, District 38: Catherine Blakespear
California State Assembly, District 77: Tasha Boerner Horvath
