AAGLA represents the interests of more than 20,000 rental property owners across the Los Angeles area, including West Hollywood, Santa Monica and much of West Los Angeles. According to the latest census figures, 78 percent of West Hollywood residents live in rental units.
“In her first term in the state Legislature, Assemblymember Butler has demonstrated a genuine understanding of the challenges facing the owners and managers of rental housing in California and has always taken a balanced approach to dealing with legislation affecting the industry,” said AAGLA executive director James Clarke in a statement announcing the endorsement.
Butler said she was honored by the support of AAGLA.
“I will work to ensure people throughout the 50th District have as many affordable housing options as possible and I look forward to assisting AAGLA in making sure this promise becomes a reality,” Butler said in a statement.
