Mom, Councilwoman, Small Business Owner, and Prosecutor, Suzie Price was raised by a single mother. Born in North Carolina, Suzie moved to Iran with her parents when she was a baby and fled the country with her mother when she was 7 years old. Like so many others, she and her mother were looking for freedom and opportunity. She learned how to speak English as she completed her primary education and went on to obtain a BA and MA in Public Policy and Administration from California State University, Long Beach. She earned her JD from Santa Clara Law School in 1999. Her mother worked as a nurse in public schools for 40 years. Suzie and her husband Mark, a military veteran, have lived in Long Beach for 20 years where they are raising their two boys and own a small business. 


Elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2018, Price was the first Democrat elected to Council District 3 in 42 years. In a district where democrats comprise only 48% of the voting population, Councilwoman Price has been able to consistently draw crossover appeal by working across the aisle to achieve results in City Hall. As a result, Suzie won both of her council elections outright with 55% in her first election and a staggering 78% of the overall vote for her re-elect.


On the City Council, Suzie has worked across district lines to focus on homelssenss, public safety, street repair, infrastructure investment, improving and expanding our green spaces, and ensuring Long Beach remains a place where you can afford to buy a home and start a business. 


As a small business owner and mom, Suzie has built an ironclad reputation as a strong advocate for policies that foster full participation of women in Long Beach’s economy. From the availability, accessibility, of family planning, child care, elder care policies, to ensuring harassment free workplaces. Long Beach is ready for a woman Mayor who will foster meaningful coalitions and look past partisanship and ideology by leading a competent and functional city government that’s focused on achieving results and addressing the real challenges Long Beach residents face.
