Reading Time: < 1 minute

The unions representing the Beverly Hills police and fire departments have announced their endorsements for the June 7 City Council race, with the Beverly Hills Police Officers Association (BHPOA) backing Vera Markowitz, Planning Commission Chair Andy Licht, and Councilmembers Lester Friedman and Robert Wunderlich and the Beverly Hills Firefighters Association (BHFA) supporting Public Works Commissioner Dr. Sharona Nazarian.

“I am probably one of the biggest supporters of the police department in the entire city,” said Markowitz, who played a large role in advocating on behalf of officers with complaints against former Police Chief Sandra Spagnoli. “They support us with their lives. I will do anything for them in any way I can.”

“I am proud and honored to have the endorsement of the Beverly Hills Firefighters’ Association,” Nazarian said in a statement. “I will work closely with our firefighters to increase safety and continue to protect residents with world class service.”

“Dr. Nazarian and her family have been active members in many areas of our community and we would be honored to work along side her in serving the community of Beverly Hills,” the BHFA said in a statement announcing the endorsement.
