Los Angeles City Councilman David Ryu Endorses Holly Mitchell for County Supervisor
Los Angeles – Adding to a growing coalition, today, State Senator Holly J. Mitchell earned the endorsement of Los Angeles City Councilman David Ryu for her bid for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors District 2.
“I am proud to endorse Senator Holly Mitchell, because time and time again she has shown us that she can deliver for our communities,” said Councilman Ryu. “She has dedicated her career of public service to fighting for working families and protecting vulnerable children. Holly not only brings a depth of experience crafting and passing California’s budgets, but will also bring a steadfast dedication to protecting the safety net that millions of Angelenos rely on.”
“I am grateful for Councilman Ryu’s support and welcome him to our growing coalition that is poised to usher in real change in our communities,” said Senator Mitchell. “Covid-19 is having a disproportionately devastating effect on the Second Supervisorial District.

Butts Jr., Compton City Councilwoman Michelle Chambers, Culver City Councilmembers Meghan Sahli-Wells, Daniel Lee and Alex Fisch.
