I have known Hydee for 20 plus years. She is an astute, trustworthy person who fights for justice for the community and will get the tough jobs done. . . . she knows how to navigate the political system to accomplish what needs to be done. My vote is for Hydee. We need fresh new ideas brought to the city to solve the many issues facing LA.
Hydee would make a great LA City Attorney!
Hydee is one of the most ethical and committed elected community representatives I have worked within the Neighborhood Councils. Hydee is smart, a proven leader, and uncompromising in wanting the best for our City. I'm happy to support such an outstanding woman and the most qualified candidate for City Attorney.
In years working with Hydee in the Neighborhood Councils, she's the real deal. A bottom-up grassroots small "d" democrat. She won't be bought.
I look to support candidates whose reputation, intellect, big picture views, and problem-solving can make a difference. I have great confidence in Hydee based on my experience working with her on issues that matter to me. She has a great resume and there is no doubt that she will be an amazing City Attorney representing all of Los Angeles.
I personally have witnessed Hydee at work for over three years in accurately analyzing the onslaught of highly consequential, politicized, and fraught density housing bills - . . . .. Hydee is smart, she's a fighter and she will not be beholden to any special interests or big money lobbies. She is of the people and for the people. That's why I'm supporting Hydee's candidacy and I will vote for her!
Hydee has been a titan reading, analyzing, and breaking down the mountain of land use legislation currently flooding our legislatures at every level. . . . She is an extraordinary blessing for us: an outstanding attorney and a deeply honest human being.
Hydee is one of the best and brightest people I have ever worked with over my 30 year career. Not only her smarts, but her way with people is fantastic. I can't think of anyone better for this opportunity. The people of LA will be well served by Hydee Feldstein Soto.
Hydee is an experienced, intelligent, and determined outsider who has what it takes to make a difference in breaking the stranglehold career politicians and their powerful supporters have had on Los Angeles' government.
Hydee is a breath of fresh air. Brilliant, committed, and smart as a whip. She is exactly what our City needs. Intelligence, accountability, and enforcement of the rule of law.
During these times of incredible need and racial conflict in our country, we need people with experience to navigate the many challenges of governing in an equitable and competent manner. Hydee is the only one running that has the background and experience to do this on day one!
I can't think of a better person to fill this job. Hydee Feldstein Soto has the character, ethics and wisdom to not only succeed as the Los Angeles City Attorney but to improve our city and make a difference in the lives of all Angelinos. I fully support and endorse this candidate for Los Angeles City Attorney 2022.
Hydee is smart, savvy and not beholden to any political party or agenda. She is a great lawyer with extensive experience of juggling cases and managing people. Best candidate running!
I love her ideals, tenacity, intelligence and integrity.
Hydee will be an exceptional City Attorney and strong advocate for the city of Los Angeles.
We need more dedicated, fearless public officials like Hydee who are strong enough to resist bowing to the special interests and crony capitalists that dominate our political systems and who are visionary enough to understand why taking care of the People's business is always the most important priority!
I have only come across a handful of people as smart and passionate as Hydee... Hydee is universally known as a tough and relentless advocate whose approach to problem solving is always tempered with common sense and good judgment. I have no doubt Hydee will be a tireless and fair advocate for the City of Los Angeles and its residents. She is an excellent choice for LA City Attorney.
