The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Holly J. Mitchell, Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, officially endorsed Freddy Puza, a leading candidate for Culver City Council. The announcement adds to the momentum of Puza’s campaign in the final months before the election on November 8, 2022.
“I am very honored to receive LA County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell's endorsement,” said Puza. “Supervisor Mitchell is an exemplary elected leader in California, who has been at the forefront of championing progressive issues for years. I look forward to carrying the torch further as I fight for equity in every city policy and budget decision in Culver City.”
Supervisor Mitchell represents two million residents of Los Angeles County’s Second District, which includes Culver City. Before she was elected to the Board of Supervisors, Mitchell served for a decade in the California Legislature as a representative for the 54th Assembly District and 30th Senate District.
