What Henry’s Supporters Are Saying

“Look, today in politics, more than anything else, we need independence and we need strength. Henry has both, and he’ll work for this district and work for you.”

– Governor Jerry Brown

“I have known Henry and his family for over 20 years. With deep roots in this district and one of the sharpest policy minds in California, Henry conducts his work with a kindness and decency that is all too rare in politics today. As a Senator, I know Henry will work tirelessly every day to grow our economy, help our kids thrive in school, keep our neighborhoods safe, relieve gridlock on our roads, strengthen the resilience of our water system to drought and earthquakes, and carry on my legacy of clean energy leadership.”

– State Senator Fran Pavley

“Voters in the state 27th Senate District have an able, and imminently skilled, replacement for the termed-out Fran Pavley… Stern brings the position an extraordinary understanding of the workings of Sacramento, combined with a deep and complete knowledge of this district. He understands and can discuss in great detail the differences between the Ventura County and Los Angeles County areas of his district, and what it takes to be sure that both are represented appropriately.”

– Ventura County Star

“We need leaders like Henry Stern in the State Senate. Henry has proven that he can cut through partisan gridlock to improve our schools, protect our air and water quality, save and attract quality local jobs and help make our neighborhoods safer.”

– Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti

“Independent leaders like Henry Stern will work with BOTH parties to get things done. Henry has experience creating quality jobs and writing tough laws preventing domestic violence and keeping neighborhoods safe. I’m proud to join local law enforcement and small business leaders in supporting Henry Stern for State Senate.”

– Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan

“Henry has a unique combination of policy expertise and a good-humored political nature in this all-too-toxic political environment. I’ve witnessed his commitment defending public education, standing up for public safety and protecting our quality of life in the Conejo Valley. As a fellow collegiate athlete, I also see in Henry the competitive spirit and teamwork that make him a great leader.”

– Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin

“Henry has earned the endorsement from the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO because he supports and will fight for issues that matter to Los Angeles today, such as affordable housing, good jobs, access to reliable transportation, and a fair wage.”

– Rusty Hicks, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the L.A. County Federation of Labor

“Henry’s commitment to safer neighborhoods, schools that offer quality education and a supportive environment to all students and a greener, sustainable California will benefit the LGBT community together with all Californians. Equality California is endorsing Henry because we believe that his experience in Sacramento, his policy expertise and his commitment to social justice for the LGBT community, together with all the communities of which LGBT people are a part, will make him a strong ally in the California Senate.”

– Rick Zbur, President, Equality California

“With his extensive background in environmental policy and his willingness to take on the tough fights, Henry Stern stands ready to lead the next generation of California’s environmental leaders. He is an environmental champion who will prioritize California’s transition away from polluting fossil fuels and towards clean, renewable energy that not only creates green jobs, but will make it possible for all our communities to enjoy a better quality of life in the Golden State.”

– Sarah Rose, CEO, California League of Conservation Voters
