Former Long Beach City Mayor Robert “Bob” Foster announced his endorsement of City Councilwoman Suzie Aramesh Price for Long Beach City Mayor.
“I strongly support Suzie Price to be the next Mayor of Long Beach,” said Foster. “Suzie has been a leader since she was elected to the City Council in 2014. I admire her pragmatism, intelligence, and work ethic, which are reflected in the accomplishments for her district. She is a straight talker, who will speak her mind and she is unafraid to make difficult decisions. Suzie puts the welfare of her City ahead of any other considerations.. She is the right candidate at the right time to lead Long Beach in the difficult times ahead.”
Bob Foster, a well respected community and business leader in the City of Long Beach, was elected as Long Beach City Mayor in 2006. Foster served two terms as Mayor of Long Beach, championing energy, public safety, and economic policies and initiatives that benefited the City immensely.

He currently serves as President of Prometheus Advisors Computer & Network Security.
“I value the pragmatic and strong leadership Mayor Foster gave our City,” said Price. “His fiscally prudent and no nonsense approach to managing our budget helped Long Beach bounce back from an incredibly difficult period of recession. His strong leadership is what kept Long Beach moving in the right direction. And I hope to build upon his great work.”
