Los Angeles – Working Families for Holly Mitchell, a coalition of community organizations and Labor Unions, welcomes the official news that Senator Holly Mitchell will advance to the November General Election for Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, District Two contest.
“This result shows one thing: Holly J. Mitchell is the progressive South LA voters want and need. She has inspired thousands to vote, and has brought together organizations and labor unions that represent working families, communities of color, and progressive donors that are ready for Holly to make real change in LA county,” said Tim Molina, Senior Political Strategist with California Donor Table.
“This win is a HUGE victory for all of us who believe that the county board of supervisors needs a champion for the people—for foster families and kids, for vulnerable women and children, for immigrants, for people who’ve been left behind or left out, and for the regular folks of the 2nd district. Holly Mitchell fights for what is right and knows how to make good things happen in a county rife with inequality and too much injustice. We are eager to get to work so she becomes our next LA County Supervisor,” said Rev. Zachary Hoover, Executive Director of LA Voice Action.
Working Families for Holly Mitchell – a coalition including LA Voice Action, CAIR Action, Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County Action Fund, The Sierra Club, SEIU UHW, New Way of Life and California Donor Table – launched a sophisticated and aggressive voter mobilization campaign in support of Senator Mitchell. The campaign effort contacted hundreds of thousands of voters through direct mail, digital advertising and radio. Senator Holly Mitchell easily secured one of the two November run-off spots, leading her next-nearest competitor by more than 18 percent of the vote.
“I’m so happy. It’s great to have a political ally that supports healthcare workers and patients in the community. I’m proud of not just myself but of my whole team’s hard work for calling voters these past six weeks to raise awareness to her campaign, ” said Mauricio Medina, a member of SEIU-UHW.
