LOS ANGELES, CA -- Adding to a growing movement of grassroots support for his re-election, today Councilmember David Ryu announced that his campaign has earned the coveted endorsement of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP), after a unanimous vote by local Democratic party members.
“David Ryu has been a long-time champion of our core Democratic values, and the Los Angeles County Democratic Party is proud to endorse him,” said Mark Gonzalez, LACDP Chair. “Throughout his first term, David has been a leader on housing & homelessness, transparency & reform, and equity for all Angelenos. The Democratic Party stands with David as he prepares for his next term, and we are excited to continue working with him to move Los Angeles forward.”
“I am so honored to receive the resounding endorsement of the Democratic Party,” Councilmember David Ryu said. “This party has fought for the progressive policies - on public education, economic justice, environmental justice - that have made me who I am today. I follow generations of Democratic activists who paved the way for me, an immigrant kid who grew up off the 101, to become the first Korean American on the Los Angeles City Council. This endorsement means so much to me, and I am committed to continue working with the Democratic Party to fight for the Los Angeles dream.”
This Democratic Party support comes in a week of several high profile endorsements in Councilmember Ryu’s re-election bid.
