The latest on California politics and government
April 10, 2009
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa joined Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at an event today to throw his support behind the package of measures on the May 19 special election ballot.
Villaraigosa, a Democrat and potential candidate for governor in 2010, said the package would help "to bring stability back to California's budget system," in a prepared statement. Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has previously endorsed the ballot package.
Other endorsers today: Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca and the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce.
