08 Feb Feuer enters race for 30th Congressional District, announces endorsement by Mayor Karen Bass
Former Los Angeles City Attorney and state Assemblyman Mike Feuer launched his campaign for United States Congress on Feb. 2, entering the race to succeed U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) in the 30th District.
Feuer announced that he has been endorsed by Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, which is an important component of his campaign, he said. Feuer and Bass are longtime legislators who have frequently collaborated over the years, and having a close relationship between representatives in Washington, D.C., and the city of Los Angeles will be pivotal to ensuring issues such as homelessness and housing are properly addressed, Feuer added.
“We have a long history together of deep collaboration, and at this moment, when Los Angeles is confronting our homelessness emergency and our affordable housing crisis, this is a particularly important opportunity for me to collaborate with Karen Bass in this new way,” Feuer said. “The emergency of homelessness and our affordable housing crisis requires federal resources and a champion in Washington for our region when it comes to delivering those resources and care. I intend to be that leader.”
