I’m proud to have won the endorsement for Mayor of Long Beach from the Long Beach Lambda Democratic Club in a landslide vote last night.
The Lambda Democratic Club is more than 35 years old and advocates for human and civil rights for all. They take an active role in expanding rights for the LGBT community and progressive causes. They are one of the largest local Democratic Clubs in the area.
I earned more than 65% of the 126 votes cast, receiving 82 votes. Bonnie Lowenthal received 25 votes and the remaining 19 votes were split among other candidates and No Endorsement.
I am honored to have the support of an organization that stands up for civil rights in Long Beach. I strongly believe voters, regardless of party, want a Mayor that is going to advocate for equality and human rights.
The Lambda Democratic Club joins the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters, Laborers Local 507, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, State Senator Ricardo Lara, Councilwoman Suja Lowenthal, School Board President John McGinnis and hundreds of community members in supporting Robert Garcia for Mayor.
Go Long Beach,
Long Beach Vice Mayor
