Press Release - Statement from Mark Vafiades - Chairman, Republican Party of Los Angeles County on Beverly Hills Mayor John Mirisch being placed on the ballot for the June 3rd 26th State Senate Seat

BURBANK, March 21, 2014 – "Today's court decision that places Beverly Hills Mayor John Mirisch on the June 3rd ballot for State Senate is a decisive victory for everyone in the 26th District. The voters have a clear right to be able to choose from any qualified candidate -- and we are delighted they will also be able to consider an outstanding Republican leader like Mayor Mirisch." 

"From the beginning, it was both unfair and illegal to prevent Mirisch from reaching the election ballot, and it is a very good thing that the court has decisively ruled in his favor. Now, all candidates will be able to compete for every voter."
