Chula Vista, California - Today, Congressman Juan Vargas (D-CA) made the following statement after racist and derogatory comments made by El Cajon Mayor Mark Lewis were released:
“The remarks made by Mayor Mark Lewis were not only derogatory and racist, but also perpetuate stereotypes of minority communities. I am sickened to see that someone in Mayor Lewis’ position would publicly make such disparaging and unfounded comments. Sweeping generalizations and degrading rhetoric only create divides and breed hatred.
“Today, I call on Mayor Mark Lewis to resign. The residents of El Cajon deserve to be represented by someone who embraces all cultures, not someone who is openly intolerant.”
