Andrew Hayes, a district representative with California Sen. Joel Anderson, whose 38th Senate district includes Escondido, Valley Center, San Marcos, Bonsall and Fallbrook, has been honored with Wendell Cutting Legislative Staff Member of the Year award from the Republican Party of San Diego County. The award, presented at the recent Lincoln Reagan Dinner, recognizes excellence in constituent service and community participation.
“It’s an honor to support Senator Anderson’s top priority to make government work for our constituents,” said Hayes. “We are always open to hearing directly from local residents, about their concerns and ideas for improving state government.”
The dinner, held June 24 and organized by the Republican Party of San Diego County, drew more than 770 attendees, making it one of the largest Republican dinners outside of Washington, D.C.
A native of Lakeside, Hayes graduated from the University of San Diego where he earned two bachelor’s degrees, one in political science and a second in business administration. He joined Anderson’s staff as an intern in March 2014 and was hired as a legislative staff member in January 2015. Anderson was first elected to the State Assembly in 2006 and to the State Senate in 2010.
