Our region’s elected leaders, government officials, and their staff work hard to make San Diego a great place to live, work and play. The San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce recognized individuals from across the county for their hard work to keep our region moving forward at the annual “Legislative Lounge,” a light-hearted awards ceremony honoring regional public officials and staff members.
Each Legislative Lounge winner was presented with a personalized caricature as their commemorative award. This year’s Legislative Lounge awards are:
“Victory Lap”—Jay Goldstone, Interim COO at the City of San Diego
“Staffer Who Gets Shit Done”—Mabi Castro, from the office of County Supervisor Nora Vargas
“Bridge Builder”—David Pasquini, Consul Business and Government Affairs at the UK Government Office in San Diego
“Rising Star” -Juan Carlos Leyva, from City Councilmember Stephen Whitburn’s office
“We Don’t Deserve You” – City Clerk Liz Maland and County Clerk Andrew Potter
