June 27, 2017 (San Diego’s East County) – Andrew Hayes, a district representative with California Sen. Joel Anderson (R-Alpine), 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 was a total surprise when I heard my name called,” said Hayes. “It’s an honor to support Senator Anderson’s top priority to make government work for our constituents. 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 El Capitan High School (class of 2012) and then attended 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’s 38th Senate district in the California Legislature includes Lemon Grove, El Cajon, La Mesa, Santee, Poway, Escondido, San Marcos, Lakeside, Valley Center, Rancho Santa Fe, Julian, Ramona, Rancho San Diego, Bonsall, Borrego Springs and Fallbrook.
