Monica Rodriguez was the top vote-getter at the Los Angeles County Democratic Party endorsement meeting for District 7.

Winning more votes than all other candidates combined, and winning more than twice as much support as her nearest opponent, Monica Rodriguez continues building grassroots support for her campaign.  With multiple Democratic candidates on the ballot, the Democratic Party did not make an official endorsement in District 7 for the upcoming primary election.

In the past two weeks, Monica Rodriguez has announced support from Democratic and Progressive leaders:

“Monica Rodriguez grew up in the northeast San Fernando Valley.  She understands the needs and challenges facing our families and neighborhoods, because she has lived them. Monica is the best prepared candidate to represent our community on the City Council and she has my full support.”

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla

“With strong leadership on a diverse range of local issues, a successful record as a problem-solver and consensus builder, and a deep understanding of the challenges facing our communities, Monica Rodriguez will hit the ground running on Day One – making a significant, positive impact benefiting her district, the Northeast San Fernando Valley, and the entire City.  I wholeheartedly endorse Monica Rodriguez for Los Angeles City Council District 7.”

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

“I endorse Monica Rodriguez’s campaign for Los Angeles City Council.  Monica will be a strong advocate for the Northeast Valley, fighting for safer streets and neighborhoods, affordable housing, health care access, job creation, and protecting programs for seniors and at-risk youth.”

Los Angeles Supervisor Sheila Kuehl

“Now, more than ever, we need strong women leaders like Monica Rodriguez on the City Council.  Monica will be a difference-maker in shaping important issues and decisions facing the City Council.”

L.A. Councilmember Nury Martinez

“I strongly support Monica Rodriguez’s campaign, and look forward to partnering with her on the City Council to strengthen our neighborhoods and deliver high-quality services to the Valley.”

L.A. Councilmember Paul Koretz

“Monica Rodriguez has dedicated herself to serving her community, and she’s established a record of being a responsive problem-solver.  Her knowledge of green infrastructure, water conservation, and public safety will greatly benefit the entire 7th District.”
