Holly Mitchell Issues Statement on Election Results
LOS ANGELES - Senator Holly Mitchell has issued a statement on the results of the election for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Second Supervisorial District seat.
“I am deeply honored to have earned the opportunity to represent the residents of the Second Supervisorial District." Mitchell said. "This seat has always been hard fought and rightfully so, because of the immense responsibility the Board of Supervisors have in creating policies that will impact over 10 million residents. My opponent, Herb Wesson, has dedicated his life to serving our community. I applaud his impressive body of work and share in his commitment to fighting for the residents of the Second Supervisorial District.
My campaign was based on creating a more equitable, inclusive, and prosperous LA County. I am proud of the integrity with which we built our movement. This was truly a community-driven campaign, powered by hundreds of volunteers from a coalition of grassroots organizations, labor unions, Democratic clubs, and residents.
Now is the time to turn our vision for a more equitable LA County into action. The residents of the Second Supervisorial District have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and have been struggling with long-standing injustices prior to COVID-19. I look forward to bringing my commitment to equity and justice to this historic, all-women led Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and continuing to fight for all residents to have the resources they need to thrive."
