Fifth District Councilmember candidate Adeena Bleich received the backing of the lobbyist group sponsored by the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce in the city election in March. The L.A. Jobs Political Action Committee chose Bleich, in part, because of her focus on business issues and their view that she is the candidate most likely to consider the city’s fiscal health. “While there is a large group of capable candidates in this race, Adeena Bleich is the best candidate to fight for good-paying jobs, fiscal responsibility at City Hall and smart solutions to traffic gridlock,” stated Gary Toebben, president and CEO, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce. This Fifth District includes a portion of the San Fernando Valley and has an office in Encino. Current Councilman Jack Weiss is vacating the seat to run for City Attorney.
