LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – Democrats in Southern California are lining up behind Los Angeles Community College District Board candidate Dallas Fowler. After securing the endorsement of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party—the largest local Democratic Party entity in the United States, representing over 2.4 million registered Democrats and a population larger than 42 other states in the 88 cities and the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County—Fowler has announced support of nine additional groups including the Democratic Party of San Fernando Valley, Miracle Mile Democratic Club, Westchester-Playa Democratic Club, Stonewall Democratic Club, San Pedro Democratic Club, North Valley Democratic Club West Hollywood - Beverly Hills Democratic Club, Los Angeles County Young Democrats and the New Frontier Democratic Club.
“I’m proud to have the endorsements of these influential Democratic clubs,” said Dallas Fowler. “Democrats understand that after last November we are literally in a fight at all levels of government—local, state and federal—to make sure that we have elected people in office who will uphold our core values and beliefs as Americans. At the end of the day there are fundamental differences with my opponent’s party’s agenda with regards to education and fiscal management. The endorsement of these clubs validates my commitment to ensuring that we are making Los Angeles Community Colleges accessible for all to attend.”
