LOS ANGELES—State Senator Holly J. Mitchell earned the endorsement of Jorge Nuño for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors District 2. Jorge Nuño, a community advocate and entrepreneur, endorsed Sen. Mitchell as the Supervisor’s race heads into a run off for November 3, 2020.
“Jorge is a fighter for our communities, and I’m proud to have him in my corner,” said Senator Mitchell. “Jorge ran a substantive campaign focused on ensuring our most vulnerable communities were heard and prioritized. His endorsement means a lot and I look forward to working with him to deliver on our commitment to create a healthy and vibrant Second District.”
Nuño declared, “I just spent the last few months debating Sen. Holly Mitchell for the Supervisor’s seat, and we’ve grown to respect each other’s mission. She agrees with me that the poorest zip codes in the County need to build a political alliance for Historic South LA that brings Black and Latino residents together to improve the health and economy of our district, and that effort will continue with us." He added, "We need to prioritize our most vulnerable neighborhoods and redistribute tax dollars back to the people who have been deprived of it as an investment in jobs and housing.”
