Cameron Smyth’s endorsement punctuates a wave of major endorsements announced by Englander in recent weeks and underscores his deep support in the Santa Clarita Valley – widely viewed by observers as a key battleground in the race for the 5th District Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors seat. Smyth cited Englander’s unmatched knowledge of the Santa Clarita Valley and stand out track record of fighting for the priorities of the area as key reasons for his endorsement.
“Santa Clarita Valley families, small businesses, and seniors need our next County Supervisor to be someone who understands our community and will fight for our priorities. I have known and worked closely with Mitchell Englander for over a decade. He gets it,” said Assemblymember Cameron Smyth (ret.). “Mitchell worked tirelessly with local leaders to defeat the massive Las Lomas Development and has a proven record of making government work for taxpayers. No other candidate in this race will fight to preserve, protect, and deliver for the communities of the Santa Clarita Valley like Mitchell Englander.”
Raised in Santa Clarita, Assemblymember Cameron Smyth (ret.) served three terms in the legislature representing the Santa Clarita Valley. Prior to his service in the State Assembly, Mr. Smyth was an elected member of the Santa Clarita City Council for six years.
“Everyday our campaign is building momentum, winning new support across this district, and putting ourselves one step closer to victory,” said Mitchell Englander. “Cameron and I have worked closely for years to protect the Santa Clarita Valley. We both know the importance of good schools, safe neighborhoods, and most importantly elected leaders who understand and will fight for the priorities and values of the families they represent. I am that type of leader and that is why I am running for County Supervisor.”
