Former County Supervisor, Yvonne Burke, Endorses Jan Perry for Mayor of Los Angeles

Jan Perry today received the endorsement of former County Supervisor, Yvonne Burke (2nd District), in Perry’s campaign to be Mayor of Los Angeles.

In her statement, Burke spoke about Perry’s record as a champion for women and families: “I am supporting Jan Perry because she is a true leader for the women of Los Angeles. If elected, she will make history by breaking through one more glass ceiling by becoming the first woman to serve as Mayor of Los Angeles.”

“Jan has a long record of fighting to provide opportunities for all women. She championed the Downtown Women’s Center project which has led to safe housing, support services, and job development to help women reclaim their lives. I am proud to endorse Jan Perry for Mayor of Los Angeles,” Burke added.

“Supervisor Burke has been a pioneer for women and has dedicated her life to serving the people of California and Los Angeles,” said Perry. “It is an honor to have the support of a leader who has opened the doors for me and so many other women.”
