Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster has endorsed Stacy Mungo for City Council.
Citing her professional experience managing local budgets, he backed her candidacy for the District 5 seat in a statement released Thursday.
“Stacy will bring leadership and unparalleled fiscal experience to the council. Her professional understanding as a Los Angeles County budget officer will help Long Beach immensely. Now, more than ever, we need council members who have real experience working with complex budgets,” Foster said.
Mungo is headed into a June 3 runoff against Carl Kemp. They finished the April 8 primary with 37.7 percent and 31.8 percent of the vote, respectively.
“I am so proud that Mayor Foster has put his confidence in me. I look forward to the challenge of continuing Mayor Foster’s efforts to put the city in a better financial situation in both the short and long term,” she said.
