Hollywood Chamber PAC Endorses Wally Knox in Los Angeles City Council District 4 Primary Race
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (PAC) announced its support today of City Council District 4 (CD-4) candidate Wally Knox. Laurie Goldman, Chair of the Hollywood Chamber PAC stated, “With such a large field of talented candidates this was not an easy decision to make for our PAC Board. The Board established an extensive endorsement process including a debate, a candidate questionnaire and in-person interviews. Each candidate offered a unique perspective on what they could bring to CD 4 but ultimately it was Wally Knox who offered the most compelling vision for the future of the District. Wally has a proven record in the Hollywood business community. We have seen first-hand his passion and commitment for Hollywood throughout his tenure in the California State Assembly and are proud to provide him with our full support in his efforts to represent CD-4 on the City Council.”
The PAC encourages all Angelenos to get out and vote on March 3rd. For further information on Hollywood Chamber PAC endorsements, please visit http://www.hollywoodchamber.net/pac. For further information about the Wally Knox for City Council campaign, please visit: www.wallyforcouncil.com.
