Lanhee Chen, candidate for State Controller, announced the endorsement of Andrew Yang, founder of the Forward Party and former Democratic candidate for President and Mayor of New York City.
“As we enter challenging economic times, it is more important than ever that Californians have an independent-minded Controller who will keep watch over how their tax dollars are spent. Californians need a problem-solver, not a typical politician, as their next Controller. Lanhee has shown the ability to transcend left and right to get things done, and I am proud to endorse him,” Yang said.
State Controller candidate Lanhee Chen added, “I’m proud to have Andrew’s support. He is a dynamic thinker and leader who is doing important work in addressing the failures of our overly partisan political system. With his support, I look forward to bringing Californians of all political stripes together to win in November. I believe that being an effective Controller is not about left or right, but about putting taxpayers ahead of the Sacramento insiders.”
