  • Strictly Business: Chamber PAC Endorsed Candidates for April 8 Primary Election

    Chamber PAC Endorsed Candidates for April 8 Primary Election   




    Once again its election season in Long Beach. Mail pieces fill mailboxes across the city. Campaign signs dot the community. Candidate forums meet and greets and coffee talks take place as each candidate tries in earnest to get their message out to each Long Beach voter.


    The Chamber's PAC has also been active. Since first entering the endorsement process last June, we have endorsed 6 candidates running for a variety of offices. In fact, it's the first time in the history of our PAC that we have endorsed in all 4 city-wide races (Mayor, City Attorney, City Prosecutor, and City Auditor). We have also endorsed 2 very dynamic individuals in the 3rd and 5th District Council races. Our PAC has continued to inform and recommend its choices to both the business community and Long Beach voters through multiple outlets; including print and digital media.


    We believe the April 8 election is not just another election in Long Beach, but a historic election – where many of the newly elected individuals will have some major decisions for the future of Long Beach that will ultimately have a rippling effect for years. This is a first of two special strictly business articles that we hope will help you become better informed about the candidates that the Chamber PAC has endorsed. Below you will find a statement from each Chamber PAC endorsed candidate and what that endorsement means to each candidate.


    We have included each candidate's campaign website so you can find information on their campaign, platform and goals for Long Beach.

  • Letters: Residents add their voices on elections



    Long Beach has grown over the past few decades into one of California's most important and vibrant residential, business and trade hubs. With the departure of Councilwoman Gerry Schipske from the 5th Council District, we have an important choice to make in our upcoming city council election.

    One council candidate truly stands out as possessing the combined experience and passion to help lead our city and the council in the right direction – Stacy Mungo.

    Stacy is a Long Beach native with deep roots in the 5th district. She attended LBUSD and Long Beach City College. She earned a master's degree in public administration from USC. Stacy has worked with distinction in local as well as state government while serving our community via the YMCA of Greater Long Beach. Stacy was president of the El Dorado Park Estates Neighborhood Association for three years.

    She is currently an administrator for the County of Los Angeles, working to help our seniors and grow the local workforce while overseeing a $180 million budget. She effectively oversees major local government operations and responsibly manages taxpayer dollars. Her philosophy is simple – you can't spend more than you take in and we should always be saving for a rainy day. That's a lesson for every level of government.

  • Press-Telegram: Four vie for open seat in Long Beach’s 5th District

    By Eric Bradley, POSTED: 

    …32-year-old Stacy Mungo, brings her own big-name endorsements. Early on, she captured the support of the Long Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, and she’s also backed by Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe and Councilman Gary DeLong.

    Records show that Mungo collected the second-most campaign cash by the end of the year, with $45,182 raised.

    How has the Long Beach native, who has lived in the 5th district since 2008, done it all with little political experience?

    Mungo, who deals primarily with workforce development and senior services in her county job, said she did a lot of footwork talking to businesses in Long Beach and adjacent cities to understand the issues, and has worked with Knabe on the board of the YMCA. She also served as the president of the El Dorado Park Estates Neighborhood Association from 2010 to 2013.

    “I have relationships from the good we’ve already done in the communities,” Mungo said.

    Her top priority is growing businesses, and in lieu of immediately restarting the Long Beach economic development office, one of her goals, Mungo pledged to commit her office’s resources to support businesses considering locating in the 5th.

    “We need to make sure people have an understanding of how long the different processes should take and ensure the expectations on the delivery of permits are clear,” Mungo said.
