LOS ANGELES, CA — 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton endorsed David Ryu today in his re-election campaign for Los Angeles’ Fourth Council District.
“Hillary Clinton is a champion for women’s rights, for children, and for a more just and fair democracy,” Councilmember Ryu said. “She is an icon, she is a trailblazer, and she has delivered real tangible change for the most vulnerable in our society. I was proud to be one of the over 65 million Americans to support her candidacy for President of the United States, and I am beyond humbled to have her support in my campaign.”
Hillary Clinton has one of the most esteemed legacies in American public life. A lawyer, First Lady, two-term United States Senator and United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton became the first woman to be nominated for President of the United States by a major political party in 2016. A fierce defender of democracy and a feminist icon, Clinton has become one of Donald Trump’s most incisive critics for his autocratic tendencies, corrupt behavoir, and for fanning the flames of hatred and division.
David Ryu became the first Korean-American elected to the Los Angeles City Council in 2015 after running an historic election rooted in transparency, anti-corruption, and his decades of work in solving homelessness. Aside from Hillary Clinton, he has been endorsed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project Los Angeles County Action Fund, Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Sierra Club, LA County Federation of Labor, more than two dozen labor unions, and over 300 community leaders in District Four.
