This week the Board of Directors for the California Business Properties Association met in Sacramento for its annual meeting, had lunch with several new legislators to discuss issues important to the commercial, retail, and industrial real estate industry, and heartily endorsed long time President and CEO Rex Hime in his bid to earn the Senate District 1 seat recently vacated.

The CBPA Board joins several other major industry groups in giving Rex their endorsement.  Other groups including statewide associations NAIOP California, BOMA California, AIR Commercial Real Estate Association, several local chapters and scores of industry leaders from across the spectrum of our industry have gotten involved in this race.

Rex S. Hime who has been the primary force in California advocating on behalf of California taxpayers who own commercial, industrial, and/or retail private property for over 35 years in his role as President and CEO of California Business Properties Association has answered the call of public service and filed paperwork to fill the seat of the district he has lived in for decades.

Rex has long talked about the importance of people from within the commercial real estate industry stepping-up and getting involved in elective politics.  He is putting those words into action.

Former-Governor Pete Wilson, and the Founder and President of the National Tax Limitation Committee Lew Uhler, are serving as Rex’s Campaign Chairs. Rex has also quickly garnered many endorsements including two former Senators who previously held the seat, Senator Tim Leslie (ret.) and current Congressmember John Doolittle, and the California Republican Veterans Association.

Senate District 1 is a massive district stretching all the way from the Eastern part of Sacramento County, to Lake Tahoe, then all the way up to the Oregon border stretching to the middle of the State and back down.  The district is known as one of the most conservative areas of the state.
