City Council Candidates Earn Additional Endorsements
Beverly Hills City Council candidates continue to accumulate important endorsements in the race for two open seats in the March 3 election. Incumbent City Councilman Julian Gold, M.D. joined incumbent Councilwoman Lili Bosse in receiving the backing of the Beverly Hills Police Officer’s Association.
“The Beverly Hills Police Officers Association is proud to endorse Dr. Julian Gold for City Council. Dr. Gold has always placed a priority on public safety and we look forward to continuing to be partners in keeping Beverly Hills safe,” said a statement from the organization.
Gold’s campaign manager Judie Fenton told the Courier, “I’m very proud that they have recognized the service that Dr. Gold has given to this community over these eight years. His concern for safety has been paramount and it is so gratifying to know that the Beverly Hills Police Officer’s Association has recognized it.”
In other endorsement news, both Bosse and Commissioner Lori Greene Gordon have received a nod from the Beverly Hills Municipal League. In a statement to the Courier, the organization noted, “The Municipal League of Beverly Hills has as its mission statement to preserve the quality of life in our City. After reviewing the candidates… we are pleased to endorse the following individuals: Lili Bosse, who has served on the City Council for nine years and distinguished herself as a strong advocate for maintaining the quality of life for our City; and Lori Greene Gordon, who has served admirably as a Planning Commissioner and understands what is required to maintain Beverly Hills as a destination while acting to curb increased density and high-rise buildings.”
Both Bosse and Gordon expressed to the Courier their gratitude and honor at receiving the endorsement. Municipal League Chairman Thomas A. White added, “Our community needs strong, ethical leadership to protect our residential quality of life, which is under constant threat from over-development and by highly paid lobbyists and foreign investors seeking disproportionate influence. We also need to further our progress on good government practices, transparency and responsiveness to residential needs.
Lili and Lori have shown their long- standing commitment to these principles and have clear voting records to support our confidence and that of the electorate.”
