After securing the endorsements from Gardena Councilmember Paulette Francis and Compton Councilmember Jonathan Bowers, Richardson adds to her impressive list of local elected officials by adding Councilmember Gray.
Gloria is the longest serving elected official in Inglewood, having served the community on the Inglewood School Board, West Basin Municipal Water District, and now a member of the Inglewood City Council.
“As Inglewood City Councilwoman in the First District, I am proud to support Laura Richardson for State Senate in the 35th District. I have worked with Laura for more than 20 years, so I know without a doubt her commitment to Inglewood and additional communities she will represent,” said Councilmember Gloria Gray. “In these challenging times, there are many issues we face right here in Inglewood, such as rising home prices beyond affordability, public safety for our children and our neighborhoods, and diminishing jobs.
Laura Richardson lived in Inglewood as a teenager and knows our neighborhoods. We need an experienced person in office, someone who has secured millions of dollars for her District, written laws and has a proven track record of making a difference. Laura exemplifies the kind of leadership we require – and we deserve. Laura Richardson is someone who brings wisdom, dedication, and a history of service. Laura is a Champion, and her experience is a valuable asset that will help us create a brighter future for all..”
Richardson thanked Gray for her support as she continues to outpace other candidates leading into the March Primary Election.
“I am truly honored to have the support of one of Southern California’s finest public servants. Councilmember Gray understands the needs of Inglewood residents and the importance of creating local jobs, protecting working families, housing our unhoused neighbors and having accessible healthcare”, said Laura Richardson. “I look forward to working with Councilmember Gray to improve the lives of all Inglewood residents”.
