Long Beach, CA – Today, Long Beach City Area Chamber of Commerce Political Action Committee (PAC) announced their endorsement of Suzie Price For Mayor for Long Beach City Mayor.

“After a long process conducting interviews of multiple mayoral candidates for Long Beach Mayor and a robust discussion that followed, the Chamber PAC is confident that Councilwoman Suzie Price is the right individual to lead the City as Mayor,” said Jeremy Harris, President and CEO of the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. “Today, we officially begin our support of a pragmatic, pro-business candidate for Mayor.”

I look forward to working with the Chamber to make Long Beach a place where existing and future business owners can thrive and invest in job creation.”
