State Assembly candidate and Palo Alto City Councilmember Marc Berman has earned the endorsement of San Mateo County Supervisor Carole Groom in his campaign for the 24th Assembly District.

“Supervisor Groom and I share a commitment to improving public education, protecting our environment, increasing access to health care, and growing the economy” said Berman. “It’s an honor to have Supervisor Groom’s support and I’m excited to work with her to expand preschool and early learning opportunities to all children, address the effects of climate change and sea level rise, and ensure that residents of San Mateo County and all Californians have access to the health care they need.”

Supervisor Groom joins her colleagues on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors - President Warren Slocum, Vice President Don Horsley, Adrienne Tissier, and Dave Pine - in unanimously supporting Berman’s campaign. Other San Mateo County leaders endorsing Berman in the last week include San Mateo County Controller Juan Raigoza, Menlo Park Fire Protection District Director Virginia Chang Kiraly, Portola Valley Mayor Maryann Moise Derwin, and Portola Valley Councilmember and former mayor Jeff Aalfs.

Supervisor Groom’s endorsement comes as the Berman campaign continues to build momentum following a decisive first-place finish in the primary, including receiving endorsements from Secretary of State Alex Padilla, State Treasurer John Chiang, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Santa Clara County Assessor Larry Stone, Mountain View Councilmember and primary opponent Mike Kasperzak, California Young Democrats, and the California Professional Firefighters. They join numerous state and local leaders in supporting Berman for State Assembly, including incumbent Assemblymember Rich Gordon, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, former California State Controller Steve Westly, Assembly Speaker pro Tempore Kevin Mullin, Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon, Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen, Equality California, California Labor Federation, and AFSCME California PEOPLE.
