Endorsements

“Councilwoman Liz Lawler will make a superb member of the California Assembly. As a local elected official, she has constantly reached pragmatic solutions to problems. She is truly bipartisan… a refreshing exception to the hyper-polarized environment of the California Legislature. She will be her own woman, basing decisions on evidence not political pressure.”

— Hon. Tom Campbell,
Five-term U.S. Congressman and Former California Finance Director

I am excited to endorse Liz Lawler for State Assembly District 28. Liz is the right person for the job. She is a true leader, who engages all perspectives and brings people together to collectively find solutions. Liz is an independent, detailed and organized thinker, who focuses on the long term impacts of policies, rather than the short term optics, something we desperately need in Sacramento today.”

— Dev Davis, Councilmember, San Jose

“We need strong leaders to propel change and accountability in government. Liz is passionate and focused. Her determination will serve California citizens and support those who need it the most. Vote for Liz for a new beginning in honest governance and vital change.”
