LA City Council Members Call on Candidate to Withdraw From Race

City Controller Ron Galperin held a news conference with LBGT leaders at the Placita Olvera Kiosk several blocks from City Hall, where he called on the challenger Bray-Ali to drop out of the race.

Galperin was joined by Richard Zaldivar, president and CEO of The Wall Las Memorias Project, Richard Corral, board member of Honor Pac, and Justine Gonzalez of the city’s Transgender Advisory Council. Equality California, a statewide LGBT civil rights group, and the Courage Campaign, a progressive organization, also denounced Bray-Ali and called for him to withdraw from the race.
