Holly Mitchell gets Governor’s Nod for LA County Board of Supervisors
This past Tuesday February 19 California Governor Gavin Newsom endorsed State Senator Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, run for a seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Local listing agent Martin Feinberg notes that Senator Mitchell currently represents the 30th Senate District. This district covers the Culver City Real Estate area and parts of Los Angeles.
Governor Newsom stated, “Creating a California for all requires strong leadership throughout the state. Senator Mitchell is adept at ensuring the needs of California’s most vulnerable populations are accounted for in funding and legislation that improves day-to-day lives and strengthens communities.”
Newsom announced his endorsement of Holly Mitchell at a meet-and-greet event at the Culver City Senior Center.
Mitchell stated she was honored by the endorsement and directed the audience to the value of Los Angeles County.
“The realities and hopes of residents in Los Angeles County are part of our shared values and future as a state,” Mitchell said.
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, was interested to learn that the assemblywoman has served for two years as chair of the state Senate’s Budget and Fiscal Review Committee. During the meet-and-greet Senator Mitchell highlighted her work to expand funding for working families, seniors, students, and infants.
Besides Holly Mitchell, Los Angeles City Council President Herb Wesson, former council member and one-time mayoral candidate Jan Perry, civil rights activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson, and community advocate Sharis Rhodes are also vying to replace Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.
Ridley-Thomas will be termed out in 2020 after representing the Second District for 12 years. He has begun fundraising for a 2020 campaign for Wesson’s city council seat.
