Business group endorses Parks

The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement Thursday of Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard C. Parks in his race against State Sen. Mark Ridley-Thomas for county supervisor.

"Bernard Parks' steadfast commitment to business retention, economic development and promoting fiscal responsibility in government tipped the scales to his advantage," Chamber President Gary Toebben said in a statement.

Ridley-Thomas has taken nearly all the key endorsements from labor organizations.
