By The Orange County Friends of Mark Ameli
On July 21, 2010, the Orange County Friends of Mark Ameli held a successful fundraiser, which follows his tremendous win in the primary election of June 8, 2010.
As reported earlier, Ameli is a candidate for Judge of the Superior Court of the Los Angeles County; once elected he will be the first Iranian American to hold such a position. Ameli was faced with a very challenging race, but despite seven opponents in the primary election, he emerged as one of the two top vote getters and advanced to the runoff election, to be held on November 2, 2010.
Ameli told his supporters who had gathered at the fundraising event that he has already received the endorsements of a number of elected officials and organizations. Among them are Sheriff Baca, Congressman Henry Waxman, Assembly Members Feuer, Hall, Lowenthal and Speaker Emeritus, Karen Bass. He has the endorsements of several judges as well as mayors of cities in Los Angeles County, and of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Iranian American Lawyers Association, Iranian American Republican Council of California and Orange County, and other organizations and community activists.
In order to win in the general election, Ameli needs to advertise more widely to get his name and message out. This will require additional funds. The event of July 21stwas a good start for Mark’s campaign. But what is now required is more fundraisers and more people who are willing to contribute to his campaign online. Please visit Mark Ameli’s website, www.electmarkameli.com, and make a contribution to his campaign. With your help, Mark will get elected as the first Iranian American Judge of the Superior Court in Los Angeles County, the largest County in the United States.
