Santa Monica Forward Endorses Lindsey Horvath for LA County Supervisor

LOS ANGELES, CA – The Honorable Lindsey Horvath continues to garner support in the City of Santa Monica as community leaders rally behind her candidacy. Santa Monica Forward, a progressive group of Santa Monica residents and small businesses owners, announced their support for her candidacy this week. They join a growing base of Santa Monica supporters, including Mayor Pro Tem Kristin McCowan, City Councilmembers Gleam Davis, Christine Parra, Oscar de la Torre and Phil Brock, Santa Monica College Trustee Dr. Nancy Greenstein, and former Mayors Judy Abdo, Pam O’Connor, Kevin McKeown, and Ted Winterer.

“Santa Monica Forward is proud to endorse Lindsey Horvath for Los Angeles County Supervisor. We believe that equity, sustainability and diversity should be the guiding principles that shape our city’s future. Lindsey Horvath has spent her career working to uphold those very principles, and she has the skills and experience needed to deliver results for Angelenos throughout the County. She is a coalition-builder and a fighter, and that’s exactly what Los Angeles needs right now,” said Carl Hansen, Co-Chair of Santa Monica Forward.

Santa Monica Forward is a group of forward-thinking Santa Monica renters, homeowners, small business owners, parents, and neighbors who work together to promote progressive policies. Through regular meetings and open public discourse, the group advocates for more affordable housing, robust schools and community services, and a cleaner and greener city through a reduction in traffic and an increase in alternative modes of transportation.

“The mission of Santa Monica Forward is more important now than ever, and I’m incredibly grateful to have their support. This thoughtful and tenacious group of residents is working to build a more sustainable and equitable Santa Monica, while ensuring that everyone has a seat at the table. This is exactly the type of vision and collaborative effort we need throughout Los Angeles County. As Supervisor, I will build on community-led efforts like this to develop County-wide clean energy programs and social safety nets that serve working families and local businesses. Together, we will build a Los Angeles that works for everyone,” said Councilmember Lindsey P. Horvath.
