SAN DIEGO–The Mexican American Business and Professional Association (MABPA) has endorsed Congressman Scott Peters for re-election over a field of challengers in the race for the 52nd Congressional District.

The MABPA, a nonpartisan organization which regularly hosts prominent San Diego Republicans and Democrats, was an early and influential endorser of Congressman Peters’ successful campaign in 2012.

“Scott’s Congressional leadership has provided crucial support for investment in San Diego, which helps boost our innovation economy, improve cross-border economic ties, and provide more opportunities for Latinos and small businesses,” said MABPA President Josie Calderon. “We’re proud to continue our support of an effective advocate for San Diego who’s delivered on his promises in Congress.”

“I went to Congress committed to breaking through the partisan divisions to provide support for our local businesses,” said Peters. “I’ve worked hard to build support for more investment in our local economy and reached across the aisle to reduce regulations that block business growth. Together with partners like MABPA, we’re proving that San Diego knows how to create jobs while protecting and improving our quality of life. I’m honored to have earned the trust of these business leaders.”

Founded in 1978, the Mexican American Business and Professional Association (MABPA) is an organization whose mission is to foster leadership and access in the service of prosperity for all San Diego communities.
