The five-member Bellflower City Council has endorsed Downey mayor Mario Guerra in his bid for state senate.
"Mario is a proven leader who will stand up for our communities in Sacramento," Bellflower mayor Ray Dunton said in a prepared statement.
Guerra said it was "an honor" to receive the endorsement.
"Local governments have suffered at the hands of Sacramento politicians who put the needs of government ahead of the needs of our communities," Guerra said. "As a state senator, I intend to put my constituents and our local communities first."
"This solidarity of support from the Bellflower City Council is a key indicator of the strength of Mario's campaign," added John Thomas, Guerra's campaign consultant. "No other candidate has as many unanimous endorsements from local governments in the 32nd state senate district."
Meanwhile, Guerra last week released his first campaign video. Watch it above.
