The Israeli American Civic Action Network (ICAN) announced it is officially endorsing incumbents Lili Bosse and Julian Gold for the Beverly Hills City Council 2020 election. ICAN is an advocacy organization dedicated to empowering Israeli-Americans at every level of government for a stronger Israel- U.S. alliance.
Bosse has received a multitude of endorsements, including from Mayor John Mirisch, the Beverly Hills Police Officers Association, the Beverly Hills Courier, the Beverly Hills Renters Alliance, the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce Leadership Political Action Committee, the Beverly Hills Firefighters Association, the L.A. Democratic Party and the West Hollywood Democratic Club/Beverly Hills Democratic Club.
ICAN California State Chair Vered Elkouby Nisim stated: “As councilmember and two-time Mayor of Beverly Hills, Lili has demonstrated dedicated leadership, compassion for our city’s many diverse communities, and the sound judgment necessary to make tough calls. My family is from Israel, our heritage is important to us, and when our home country is attacked, Lili is one of the first to stand up and defend the world’s only Jewish state.” Bosse, the only child of Holocaust survivors, responded on her Instagram with humbled enthusiasm. “I am grateful for your strong support of Israel and your fight against anti-Semitism,” Bosse wrote. “I stand side by side with you.”
Similarly, Gold has also received endorsements, including from the Beverly Hills Firefighters Association, the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce Leadership Political Action Committee, the Beverly Hills Courier, the Beverly Hills Police Officers Association, the L.A. Democratic Party and the West Hollywood Democratic Club/ Beverly Hills Democratic Club.
“Dr. Gold has been a strong and steady leader for the City of Beverly Hills and has been a dear friend to our Israeli and Jewish communities,” stated Vered Elkouby Nisim. “Combining his medical background with his love for Israel, Dr. Gold helped to facilitate an important partnership between California and Israel promoting joint stem cell and biotech research.” Dr. Julian Gold is ICAN’s final endorsement for the 2020 municipal election in Beverly Hills.
