Assembly District 54 candidate Heather Hutt continues to receive endorsements from some of the most powerful women in Los Angeles County. Rep. Maxine Waters, Supervisor Janice Hahn, and many others gave Hutt their stamp of approval, with their highly coveted endorsements to become the Assembly’s third African-American woman in the legislature.
“I am proud to endorse Heather Hutt for State Assembly,” said Rep. Maxine Waters. “Heather is a mother of three, a lifelong Democrat and a leader who has worked in both the state and federal government.”
“She will be a fighter on a range of issues, from criminal justice reform to addressing homelessness, combatting climate change, making healthcare a right rebuilding our economy,” explained Waters.
Rep Janice Hahn endorsed Hutt because of her exemplary service and experience serving some of Los Angeles County’s most vulnerable populations.
“Having served as Vice President Kamala Harris’ state director, while she was in the U.S. Senate, to her time working for State Senator Isadore Hall III, Heather will bring a tremendous amount of experience to the job,” said Hahn. “I know she will be a champion for women, working families, and the people of the 54th Assembly District.”
Former Los Angeles Councilwoman Jan Perry is ready to hit the ground running for Hutt.
“I will be out there walking the district with you,” pledged Perry.
Other notable endorsements are from Ret. Supervisor Yvonne Brathwaite-Burke, Aide Castro, former mayor of the city of Lynwood, Rep. Diane Watson, Asm. Autumn Burke, community activists Angela Rye, Areva Martin, Tina McKinnor, Pat Sanders, and Sen. Maria Elena Durazo.
The special election will take place on Tuesday, May 18.
