Key Endorsements

“Jonathan Hatami understands and values the law, wants to promote public safety and create communities for everyone to thrive. He will implement real reforms that will not only benefit the communities of Los Angeles County, but also serve the rehabilitative process for justice – involved individuals.”

Lisa Smittcamp

Elected District Attorney, Fresno County

“Hatami is a strong and effective prosecutor of crimes against children and the most vulnerable in our communities. He has shown real leadership in the trenches defending the defenseless. He has the pulse of the people and knows reforms don’t have to come at the expense of public safety.”

Joe Vinatieri

Mayor, Whittier, CA

“Jonathan Hatami fought for justice for Gabriel and our family. As District Attorney, he will fight just as hard for you and your children.”

Olivia Rubio

Cousin, Gabriel Fernandez

“George Gascón must be defeated, and Jonathan Hatami is the best candidate to do just that and bring public safety back to Los Angeles. Like myself, Jonathan has prosecuted those who target, abuse and murder children. He cares about victims and has the character to be the District Attorney. I proudly endorse Jonathan Hatami to be the next Los Angeles District Attorney. He has my full support.”

Mike Hestrin

Elected District Attorney, Riverside County

“I am proud to announce my endorsement of Jonathan Hatami for Los Angeles District Attorney. He is the kind of leader LA needs right now. He knows what integrity is all about and will always do the right thing. He was the first one to step forward and challenge George Gascón’s dangerous policies. That takes courage and shows true leadership. The passion he brings when fighting for justice for abused, neglected and murdered children is what he will bring to all of Los Angeles. He has my support.”
