The executive boards for three local Democratic clubs will hold a fundraiser for several candidates running in the 43rd state Assembly District at 5 p.m. May 27 at Flappers Comedy Club, 102 E. Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank.
Called the “43rd AD Get Out the Laugh” fundraiser, proceeds will pay for door hangers and postcards for the primary election and several candidates running for offices, including Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake), Sen. Carol Liu (D-La Cañada-Flintridge), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) and candidates for the Los Angeles County Democratic Party Central Committee.
Those candidates are Laurie Collins, Carol Fodera, Shanna Ingalsbee, Kathleen Kensinger, Caro Avanessian, Vickere Murphy and Thomas Patrick O’Shaughnessy.
All of the candidates supported by the fundraiser have been endorsed by the clubs’ executive boards.
