MEDIA

Likely November voters from Santa Monica to Hollywood and the San Fernando Valley to the Conejo Valley, need to know that Bob Hertzberg will work harder than anyone else to clean up the mess in LA County.  As Supervisor, Bob Hertzberg will take responsibility, be accountable, and act decisively to help solve our biggest and most urgent challenges.

Reducing Crime and Working With Police:

Hertzberg wants LA County to get smarter on crime.  He created one of the largest DNA crime labs in the country which is focused on both investigating crime and freeing the innocent.  That's why he has been endorsed by every police organization across our district because he is committed to investing in more police officers who will walk in our neighborhoods and communities to improve public safety and ensure that those who commit crimes are arrested.

Cracking Down on Illegal Guns:

For decades, Hertzberg has fought the gun lobby to enact countless gun safety laws and reduce gun violence. He just authored a bill that was signed into law that limits the spread of assault weapons and ghost guns and would allow private citizens to sue manufacturers, importers, and sellers of ghost guns and assault weapons. The New York Times called Hertzberg's law among "the most high-profile," and also noted that "Californians are about 25 percent less likely to die in mass shootings compared with residents of other states," as a result of the state's tough gun safety laws.

Crime in West Hollywood:

According to multiple news reports, crime in the City of West Hollywood is up, some estimates say by more than 130%. At the same time, the City of West Hollywood voted to defund the police by eliminating a number of deputy sheriff positions in the city. According to news reports, "the decision to cut funding to the county sheriff comes as West Hollywood faces a rise in crime." With violent crime rising — Hertzberg's opponent not only voted to defund the police — but even supported a candidate who wants to "abolish the police" meaning the elimination of police – including those who respond to 911 emergencies. 

Combating Climate Change:

The Guardian Newspaper called Hertzberg “One of 50 People to Save the Planet.” CBS News said “A Lot of Politicians Talk About Climate Change, Hertzberg is actually doing something about it.” He created Los Angeles’ first solar manufacturing company and helped pass clean air emission standards.

Urgently Addressing Homelessness:

Bob Hertzberg knows homelessness is out of control. He says he will take personal responsibility to help solve the homelessness and mental health emergency. He supports the City of LA’s initiative to ban homeless encampments 500 feet from schools and day care centers — but says we need a more comprehensive plan countywide to get the unhoused off the streets. Hertzberg will fight to change the law to make sure the county is legally obligated to solve the homelessness crisis and to work in partnership with the 88 cities of LA County, not just the City of Los Angeles, because homelessness cannot be solved by moving homeless people from city to city. He will work to ensure local governments are held accountable for providing shelter housing and services and cut red tape by establishing a single governing authority over the county’s 88 cities to oversee and coordinate homelessness and ensure effective and immediate solutions.

Protecting Abortion Rights:

The only lifelong pro-choice candidate in the race is Bob Hertzberg. He has always been 100% pro-choice. That why voters also need to know that Bob Hertzberg earned a 100% legislative scorecard from Planned Parenthood California Affiliates in 2002, 2015, 2016, 2017201820192020, and 2021 because he has supported abortion rights and women’s rights laws repeatedly in the state legislature. After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, Hertzberg co-authored a measure that will be on this November’s ballot to enshrine abortion rights in the California State Constitution. Additionally, Hertzberg authored California's Women's Contraception Equity Act, supported equal pay for equal work, investments in Planned Parenthood to protect abortion access and reproductive freedom.

Newspapers Have Said:

The Los Angeles Times called Hertzberg “a high velocity wonk: he loves BIG ideas and will flesh out every one of them for you if you give him a chance.” To view the Los Angeles Daily News Editorial Board endorsement, click here. Other newspaper statements can be viewed here.

West Hollywood Mayor Lauren Meister

“I'm endorsing California Senator Bob Hertzberg because of his maturity and his years of experience as a legislator, a Senate Majority Leader, and public servant. As a State Senator, he represents a constituency of one million people and is responsible for a $300 billion budget. This is significant when you compare it to his competitor, my colleague, who represents only 37,000 people and a city budget of just $100 million. 

 

Senator Hertzberg believes in working with both sides of the aisle to get things done. His competitor has a “my way or the highway” approach, which does not allow for differing opinions or diverse voices to be heard and, oftentimes, can be unproductive.

 

Lastly, the County’s budget is nearly $40 billion and priorities are important. Senator Hertzberg believes that public safety must be a county priority, whereas his competitor proposed cuts to Sheriff’s deputies in the City of West Hollywood at a time when crime was on the rise. Yes, there are systemic problems with policing that must be addressed. But let’s address them by voting in a new Sheriff and improving recruiting techniques and training; not by throwing out the baby with the bathwater.”

“LA County District 3 includes the most iconic areas of Los Angeles County — a district that traverses the economic powerhouse that is the San Fernando Valley, north to Hollywood and Beverly Hills, the entertainment capitals of the world, to LA’s majesties coastline from Venice to Malibu, including almost the entirety of the Santa Monica Mountains and some of the most underserved and vulnerable communities like Pacoima — demanding the experiences and passionate leadership of Senate Majority Leader Bob Hertzberg. Senator Hertzberg knows our issues and has been delivering on the needs and priorities of our communities for decades. He has delivered over $1 billion to the San Fernando Valley alone and works hand-in-hand with cities like San Fernando to break-down barriers and get things done. District 3 deserves and needs the best, especially as we face unseen numbers of homeless, pressures on our neighborhoods and public safety. We have a need for passionate, highly experienced leaders who have proven they know how to make government work for us.”
