National Organization for Women Backs Garcetti for Mayor Over Greuel and Perry

SOURCE: Daily News

Bypassing the two women candidates in the race, the California chapter of the National Organization for Women political action committee announced Tuesday it is endorsing Councilman Eric Garcetti for mayor.

In taking the action, the group overlooked the candidacies of Controller Wendy Greuel and Councilwoman Jan Perry.

California NOW President Patty Bellasalma said in statement the decision was based on which candidate "has a proven track record of not just talking about women's equality and empowerment, but has used their previous position to create real change in the city.

"We also asked which candidate has the vision needed to move Los Angeles forward and who would be most willing to create a more equal playing field for the city's almost two million women and girls."

Garcetti said he was pleased with the endorsement, which reflected his commitment to issues of gender equity.
