While the election for the Seat of Los Angeles County Supervisor isn’t scheduled until March of 2020, the campaign on the ground is already very active. The leading candidate for the Second Supervisorial District is picking up endorsements and reaching out to voters.
State Senator Holly Mitchell offered “I am proud to share that Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County Action Fund (PPAP) – a non-partisan organization, comprised of over 137,000 community members – has endorsed my candidacy to represent the 2nd Supervisorial District on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
Throughout my life I have fought to expand access to affordable, quality healthcare and to protect the rights of women to determine what is best for our health and lives. Most recently as State Senator for California’s 30th District and Chair of the Senate Budget Committee, I have worked with PPAP and other health advocacy organizations to help off-set the attacks from the Trump Administration to Title X funding and family planning health services.
There are over 250,000 residents in Los Angeles County that rely on health organizations like Planned Parenthood for general wellness exams, STD testing, accurate medical information and reproductive healthcare. Now more than ever we must hold the line on protecting our rights. As County Supervisor, I will remain vigilant in doing this and creating better health outcomes for our most vulnerable communities.”
“PPAP is proud to endorse Senator Mitchell for the LA County Board of Supervisors. Senator Mitchell is a lifelong champion for reproductive health care and will bring her distinguished expertise and leadership to county residents.” – Sue Dunlap, President of Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County Action Fund
“Senator Holly Mitchell is a trailblazer for progress, quality healthcare and patient rights. We proudly stand with Senator Mitchell.” says Celinda Vázquez, Vice President of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County Action Fund.
