The Valley needs a fearless leader like Serena working to ensure its people and neighborhoods get their fair share of resources and services. I fully endorse Serena Oberstein for City Council."
CD-12 Resident & Former President of L.A. Police Union Tyler Izen
"As a longtime public servant, retired Los Angeles police officer with extensive experience in Los Angeles politics, and a 30 year resident of CD 12, I believe that Serena best represents the future of CD12. She is smart and has broad experience in leading non-profit organizations, representing constituents and fighting for equity and what's right.
Serena shares my values of family, community, public safety and ethics. We need honest, ethical leaders who will serve with absolute integrity more than ever. I know that Serena will combine her experience, intellect, and commitment to build coalitions to effectively represent our Valley neighborhoods. For these reasons and for the future of my children and grandchildren, I intend to vigorously support Serena for City Council."

I've known Serena for years and can attest that she knows how to work with and serve her community. Serena has the political moxie to represent the 12th District effectively. I enthusiastically support Serena Oberstein for Los Angeles City Council."

She will be an energetic and effective champion for the San Fernando Valley. I'm excited and proud to endorse Serena Oberstein for City Council."
