To celebrate Earth Day Russ Warner, the Democratic candidate who hopes to win David Dreier’s congressional seat this November, biked from one end of District 26 to the other, a total of 53 miles. He and his cycling supporters ended their trip at Dominick’s Italian restaurant in the 2900 block of Foothill Boulevard.
“I did this to help bring attention to Earth Day,” Warner said.
And, he admitted, it was a great way to meet the people in the district.
Warner is campaigning to be the Democrat who will run against the incumbent, Dreier, in this November’s election, assuming he beats Cynthia Matthews in the Democratic primary on June 3 and Dreier wins the Republican primary against La Cañada businessman Sonny Sardo.
Warner’s bike trip began just after 8 a.m. on Sunday morning and ended just before 4 p.m. As he pulled into the Dominick’s parking lot, several supporters greeted him with signs and water.
