Holly Mitchell Endorsed by Business Leader and Primary Opponent Jake Jeong for LA County Supervisor
LOS ANGELES - State Senator Holly Mitchell was endorsed today by Jake Jeong, a prominent community leader and her former primary opponent in the Los Angeles County Second Supervisorial District race. Jeong is the third District 2 primary candidate to endorse Mitchell, after Carson Mayor Al Robles and community advocate Jorge Nuño.
"I trust Holly Mritchell to make the right decisions for our community,” said Jake Jeong. “She is not only an experienced policymaker, but also a great listener. Holly asks her constituents what she can do to make their lives better, and then she delivers. I know she will tackle the issues we care about most, like healing our economy after Covid-19, fighting corruption, and addressing our dire homelessness issue. The Second Supervisorial District will be best served by her leadership”
“I'm honored to have the endorsement of Jake Jeong,” said Senator Mitchell. “Jake ran a strong campaign that called for increased access to affordable housing and elevated solutions like modular models to help save on the cost to build. Many of the issues he highlighted during the primary are top priorities of mine and his support underscores how we can all come together to build a better Los Angeles County.”
Jake Jeong joins a rapidly growing coalition of community endorsers including Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr., West Hollywood Mayor Lindsay Horvath, Los Angeles City Councilman David Ryu, Compton City Councilwoman Michelle Chambers, Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells, and Culver City Councilmembers Daniel Lee and Alex Fisch.
