Mark Ridley-ThomasAs your L.A. County Supervisor, I welcome you to explore my re-election campaign website to learn more about our key accomplishments in the Second District since my election to the Board of Supervisors in November 2008.

The last few years have been the most challenging in recent memory for the men, women, children and working families of Los Angeles County.

Despite the near collapse of our national economy in 2008, and in the face of high jobless rates that persist, we were able to make significant progress in our focused efforts to preserve local jobs, create new employment opportunities and dramatically expand access to critical and essential county services for you and your family members.

Our work is not done.

Join with me as we renew our mission and commitment to the people of the Second District to:

Provide quality healthcare in state-of-the-art facilities staffed by caring and dedicated health practitioners for persons who are sick or chronically ill,

Ensure safe neighborhoods through effective community-based law enforcement to persons concerned about their safety at home

Create affordable early childhood education programs and expand school-based health programs to give our children the right start they need to grow and mature to become productive and healthy young adults.

With your help this year, we will continue to deliver change and produce results that benefit the 2.3 million people of L.A. County's Second District.

With your vote of support, we will finish what we started in November 2008.

With hope,

Mark Ridley-Thomas
