In the two decades I have known her, she has never wavered in her commitment to the public good.”

"Having worked with Holly to pass #EquityandJustice” said Ricardo Lara “a package of criminal justice reform bills to help ensure communities throughout Los Angeles County have a more equitable justice system - I know that as Supervisor, we will all benefit from Holly’s skilled leadership in addressing complex social challenges with solutions that serve the diverse needs of the county.”

She is the perfect choice for County Supervisor.”
