The coalition's endorsement letter, sent to Assembly Speaker Karen Bass, D-Los Angeles, says Frye "has a long and consistently outstanding record as a public health and coastal champion."
"She is in a league of her own when it comes to protecting Californians from coastal water pollution and other public health assaults," the letter says. "She is dedicated to (the) protection of coastal environmental values, and understands the need to protect the private property rights of coastal landowners and developers."
Council President Ben Hueso now holds the San Diego region's seat on the 12-member Coastal Commission.
He, along with Frye, Oceanside Councilwoman Esther Sanchez, Carlsbad City Council members Keith Blackburn and Ann Kulchin, Chula Vista Councilman Steve Castaneda and Coronado Councilwoman Carrie Downey, have all been nominated for the position.
Bass is expected to make the appointment by the end of the month.
The coalition -- which includes San Diego Coastkeeper, Access for All, the Environmental Health Coalition, Heal the Bay, Sierra Club and the Surfrider Foundation -- also endorsed Santa Cruz County Supervisor Mark Stone to the Coastal Commission.
