Gatto campaign flier has a mistake

Recent campaign literature for state Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) contained a mistake in its endorsements.

The flier, part of Gatto's reelection materials for his race in the 43rd District, correctly lists Caro Avanessian, president of the California Armenian American Democrats, as an individual endorser. However, it incorrectly states that Avanessian is a member of the Southern California Armenian Democrats, a regional organization.

The California Armenian American Democrats, an organization ratified by the state Democratic Party earlier this year, is expected to make its endorsement in the 43rd District race on Monday, Avanessian said.

Mike Shimpock, a campaign consultant for Gatto, acknowledged he made a mistake and listed the wrong organization on the literature.
