Laura Friedman, Democratic candidate in Assembly District 43, today announced that she had been endorsed by the Humane Society Legislative Fund, the political arm of the national Humane Society.
The Humane Society is the nation's largest and most effective animal protection organization which addresses animal welfare through direct services for animals in need, running humane shelters and sanctuaries, and advocating for better enforcement of and stronger laws to prevent animal cruelty.
Sara Admudsen, Treasurer of the HSLF PAC said in a release that Friedman will "stand up for the values of protecting animals from cruelty and abuse."
Laura's long history of pro-animal leadership won her this valuable endorsement. As a member of the Glendale City Council, Laura worked with her colleagues to ban the sale of dogs and cats in Glendale. She banned the use of anti-coagulant rodent killers because of its devastating impact on wildlife. She is committed to protecting open space and wildlife corridors.
In her personal life, Laura refuses to purchase products that have been tested on animals. She has a dog, Finley, and two cats, Lil'G and Gunner, that are rescue animals, and is also the owner of a horse, Squiggles.
During the primary election, Laura Friedman was also endorsed by the League of Humane Voters, a national organization dedicated to "political action for animals" with an emphasis on supporting pro-animal legislation.
