SAN PEDRO, CA— Adding to her growing lead in endorsements among community leaders, Janice Hahn today picked up the endorsement of Darren Parker, the Chair of the African American Caucus of the California Democratic Party.
“In 1962, there was no politician in California who was willing to meet with Martin Luther King except for Kenny Hahn. I grew up with Janice, and it was apparent from an early age that she had inherited her father’s powerful sense of justice and fairness,” said Parker, who is also Vice-Chairman of the LA County Democratic Party, Region 1. “Janice has been a voice for the disenfranchised, a leader in the community, and a personal friend for many years. Her work in keeping kids in school, and out of gangs, has changed the lives of so many people, and I am glad to lend my support to her re-election campaign for Congress.”
“From his decades of service as a community leader, to his service in our party, Darren Parker is a great friend and a community treasure,” said Congresswoman Janice Hahn. “I am thrilled to have received his support in my campaign.”
Today’s endorsement comes on the heels of Congresswoman Hahn’s recent endorsements from the Los Angeles Times, Daily Breeze, Long Beach Press-Telegram, and the Los Angeles Daily News.
