The Anthony Portantino for State Senate campaign is proud to announce the endorsement of retired Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer Bill Fujioka. Fujioka, a resident of the 25th Senate District, joins a lengthy and growing list of local leaders and organizations that have endorsed Anthony Portantino for the 25th State Senate District.
"I live in the 25th State Senate District and I want to ensure that in November our district elects the right choice and the best candidate. As the former Chief Executive Officer of Los Angeles County, I know and have worked with Anthony Portantino and Republican Supervisor Mike Antonovich. Anthony Portantino is clearly the superior person for the job. He has a strong fiscal record and believes in accountability and transparency -- attributes that separate him from his opponent and which will serve the residents of the 25th Senate District extremely well. Anthony is just the type of energetic and responsible leader we need in Sacramento. Please join me in supporting Anthony Portantino for State Senate.”
