Los Angeles— Just a few days after Mike Feuer announced his candidacy for the 30th Congressional District to succeed Congressman Adam Schiff, more trailblazing women leaders have added their support for Feuer’s candidacy. Former LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, Congresswoman Julia Brownley, and Rabbi Laura Geller announced their support of Feuer today in Los Angeles.

 

“I’m proud to endorse Mike Feuer for Congress. For decades, Mike has championed equality for the LGBTQ community and has a career-long record of standing up for civil rights and fundamental fairness. When we served together in the State Legislature, I found Mike to be an especially effective lawmaker on a host of other complex issues as well, from protecting our environment and preventing gun violence to expanding access to healthcare. Mike Feuer is ready to be a stand-out member of Congress from the very start.”

“I’m especially honored to have the support of these extraordinary leaders in this campaign,” said Feuer. “Their lives and careers are examples for all of us. I can’t thank them enough for standing with me.

“Remarkably strong and talented women have shaped my life in profound ways, from my Grandma Dorothy, whose brilliance and social conscience inspired me, to my mom, who taught me at a young age to stand up for people in distress, to my incredibly gifted and accomplished wife Gail, who is such a marvelous partner. I am committed to honoring their values as I enter this exciting new phase of my public service career.”
