The California Contract Cities Association (CCCA) congratulates its members who were elected or re-elected in the November General Election. After hard-fought races across the board, CCCA celebrates the winners of three high-profile races that back the Association in the fight for local control.
First, CCCA Past President Lindsey P. Horvath has been elected to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors where she now represents the people of District 3. Prior to the election, Lindsey served on the City of West Hollywood City Council to which she was first elected in March of 2015.
Lindsey led CCCA through the COVID-19 pandemic during her term of presidency, and served as an admirable leader for the Association’s Executive Board and members.
Second, CCCA Legal & Contracts Committee Vice Chair Blanca Pacheco has been chosen to serve on the California State Assembly. Blanca brings her long history of local, public servitude to the Capitol in Sacramento. Blanca was the first Latina elected to the City of Downey City Council in 2016. In 2020, she became the first Latina to serve as the mayor for the City of Downey. Blanca has been involved with CCCA for several years and has been a great asset to the Executive Board team.
Finally, Robert Luna now serves as the new Los Angeles County Sheriff. Sheriff Luna previously served as the police chief of Long Beach for seven years, and is a 36-year veteran of the Long Beach Police Department.
He started his career in 1985 as a reserve officer and was then promoted within every rank. CCCA looks forward to working with Sheriff Luna and cultivating a relationship that will bring control back to local governments.
“It is with great excitement that the California Contract Cities Association gets to see two of its dedicated members take on high-profile roles that will greatly impact our local communities,” said CCCA Executive Director Marcel Rodarte. “As a previous elected official, I encourage all elected and re-elected officials to fight for their community and keep in mind what’s best for all of their constituents. Local control continues to matter across California.”
