Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan has endorsed Laura Friedman for California State Assembly in District 43.
Mayor Riordan stated:
“Laura Friedman is an outstanding local leader who has worked hard to bring jobs and a healthy economy to her community. Laura spent 20 years in the private sector as an executive in the entertainment industry and, today, she runs a successful small business. As a member of the Glendale City Council she made the tough decisions during the recession to keep the city’s budget balanced — even voting to significantly cut her own pay. Laura Friedman will bring people together to solve common problems. She deserves your support for State Assembly.”
Riordan was a highly regarded attorney, philanthropist and business leader before being elected Mayor of Los Angeles in 1993. He served two terms as Mayor and is still regarded as one of the most popular leaders in the City’s history.
“Mayor Riordan made a big difference regionally and in the City of Los Angeles,” said Laura Friedman. “He spearheaded efforts to begin construction on region-wide public transit and helped streamline and reform city government to make it more accountable. I am honored to have his support.”
