Los Angeles County is home to over 10 million people, the largest county in the nation. Holly Mitchell has dedicated her career to addressing the issues that impact county residents and Californians across the state. As a State Senator and Chair of the Budget Committee, her expertise in creating policy solutions and guiding the budget for the fifth largest economy in the world, has meant progressive reforms and funding to meet the real needs of local communities. Holly is called the “Conscience of the Legislature” we must elect her to LA Board of Supervisors area 2.
Christy Smith has dedicated much of her life to improving schools, classrooms, and opportunities for students here. She started her career at the U.S. Department of Education, working to root out waste so more funding would get where it was needed in the classrooms. Then, while her two daughters were in public school here, Christy saw that our public schools didn’t have access to the technology kids need to learn to succeed in today’s economy. So, she founded the Valencia Valley Technological Education Foundation that worked to connect schools to the internet and put computers in classrooms, to give students access to experts and learning resources all over the world. This is a top target for “Red to Blue”.

Prop 15 was put on the ballot by a record-breaking 1.7 million people who believe that wealthy corporations need to pay their fair share.
If you believe that we need to close corporate tax loopholes to invest billions every year in schools, community colleges and local services, then you believe in Prop 15.
Prop 15 will battle against wealthy corporations, special interests and some of Trump’s biggest donors. Working Hero stands with teachers, nurses and essential workers to say, “Yes on 15!”.
This November, Californians will have a chance to fight gender discrimination and systemic racism at the ballot box. Proposition 16 will restore critical equal opportunity policies in state hiring, contracting, and education.
We know that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to succeed — regardless of their gender, what they look like, or where they were born. So when we see women getting paid 80 cents on the dollar, and women of color making even less, we know it’s time for a change.
