Jim Clarke, candidate for re-election to the Culver City Council, is buoyed by the many organization endorsements he has received in recent weeks.
Early endorsements were received from Congresswoman Karen Bass and State Senator Holly Mitchell, in addition to the Chamber of Commerce and the Culver City Democratic Club.
The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor AFL-CIO and the Los Angeles County Democratic Party also voted to endorse him for re-election. In the last couple of weeks the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter, the Culver City Employees Association, the Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters, the Los Angeles Business Federation, the Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles Association of Realtors, and Southern California Americans for Democratic Action have added their names to the long list of supporters for the candidate.
"I am very grateful for the outpouring of support I have received throughout the community," Clarke said. "It is reaffirming that from the neighbors I meet on my almost daily walks around the city, to the endorsing organizations who interviewed the candidates, constituents think I have been a responsible councilmember and want me back. I am looking forward to serving them for another four years."
A fundraiser for Clarke's campaign is planned for Wednesday, March 19 at the Culver Hotel. There is still time to make a reservation, which is a must due to space limitations. The event will be from 6 pm to 7:30 and includes entertainment by Ronnie Jayne, an abundance of hors d'oeuvres, no host bar, a silent auction prizes and surprises. The cost is $50 a person or $80 a couple (couple of what doesn't matter). RSVP at http://clarke4council2014.com/rsvp.
