Democrats Unanimously Endorse Paul Krekorian


Aug 4, 2009

VALLEY GLEN-The Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley unanimously
endorsed Paul Krekorian Monday night in his bid for the City Council’s
Second District, a potentially game-changing move for the Sept. 22
race. The 57-0 vote was an unprecedented moment in the group’s history.

"As a lifelong Democrat, I am elated to have the unanimous support of
these Valley activists who have joined me in this movement to reform
city government and make it work for us," Krekorian said. "With this
base of support, we can now springboard toward doing the important
work of representing the Valley during this especially important time
of great economic peril and uncertainty. This Democratic partnership
for change sends a clear message that my campaign is a grassroots
movement of the community and for the community."

Krekorian now counts more than three dozen community groups, leaders
and advocates among his endorsements.

Recently, he was endorsed by Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca and
has been supported by dozens of legislative leaders from U.S. House
of Representatives, the state Assembly and state Senate.

"It was a great honor to throw our unconditional support behind Paul –
an action this group has never undertaken," said Agi Kessler, chair of
the Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley. "Paul’s long record
of action and representation led all of us to believe that he will
be ready to face the challenges on Day One to improve the Valley. We
were pleased to support him and are wiling to do all we can to ensure
Paul is our City Councilman."
