The Fresno Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (PAC) has announced another slew of endorsements for local elected seats.

Fresno County Supervisor Nathan Magsig received the Fresno PAC endorsement for the new Congressional District 5, which includes pieces of Modesto and Fresno counties.

Other candidates running for the office are Department of Water Resources Manager Lourin Hubbard (D) from Fresno and fellow Republican Tom McClintock (R) from Roseville.

McClintock seeks an eighth term in the House.

The Fresno PAC chose Fresno City Council Member Mike Karbassi as the Democrat for Assembly District 27, covering Fresno, Madera and Merced counties.

Also running for the seat include fellow Councilmember Esmeralda Soria, also a Democrat.

For Fresno County Sheriff, the Fresno Chamber PAC endorses Fresno County Assistant Sheriff John Zanoni. Zanoni is running against Fresno Deputy Chief of Police Mark Salazar.

The Fresno Chamber PAC endorses Daniel Renteria for Fresno Unified School District Trustee from District 5, who is running against Russ Allen, Andrew Fabela and Andy Levine.

“As a small business owner, earning the Chamber’s endorsement is a special honor. We need moderate voices in Sacramento to fight for local businesses and bring our hard earned tax dollars back to the Valley,” said Karbassi in a news release from the Fresno PAC.
