The Beachhead doesn’t make many candidate endorsements, but when a Venice activist runs we can’t sit on the sidelines.
Lisa Green (her last name and her political party) is an advocate for the environment, humane treatment and respect for the homeless and RV dwellers, and a supporter of Venice Cityhood.
Her Democratic opponent, Betsy Butler, was one of the few candidates in the primary who did not return the Beachhead’s questionnaire. Not a good start for a future assemblymember.
We hope Butler will be a positive voice for Venetians if she is elected, but at this point we just don’t know.
