Pasadena area Assemblymember Chris Holden joins a strong and growing group of leaders endorsing Phlunte’ Riddle for the State Senate’s 25th District, the Riddle campaign announced Monday.

“I have known Phlunte’ for many years and I can tell you that she has served our community with integrity,” said Assemblymember Holden. “She has been a leader and a change agent in Pasadena and I know she will be a fighter for middle-class families, stronger schools, and safer communities in the State Senate.”

Chris Holden was first elected to serve the Foothill Communities in the State Assembly in 2012 with over 60% of the vote. He authored and led the passage of several bills, including legislation to make the state’s small business loan program more accessible, and expanding innovation hubs throughout California to spur business start-ups focused on emerging technologies. He entered public service as a member of the Pasadena City Council and was instrumental in expanding the Metro Gold Line to connect the San Gabriel Valley to Los Angeles.

“Assemblymember Holden’s endorsement means so much to me,” Riddle said. “He has been a friend and a mentor to me for many years. I am so honored by his support. Together, we are going to find solutions that work for the Foothill communities.”

Riddle resides in Pasadena with her husband of 36 years and is the mother of three adult sons. Riddle spent nearly 29 years rising through the ranks of the Pasadena Police Department, breaking barriers as the first woman to be permanently assigned as a gang/street narcotics officer and the first African American female sergeant and lieutenant. She retired as a lieutenant, where she was the Public Information Officer & Adjutant to the Chief of Police.

Riddle is an adjunct professor at Golden West College and owns a consulting company, where she trains executives and helps solve communications challenges in organizations.

The 25th State Senate District encompasses the communities of Pasadena, Burbank, Glendale, Bradbury, Claremont, Duarte, Glendora, La Cañada-Flintridge, La Verne, Monrovia, San Dimas, San Marino, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena, Upland, Altadena, La Crescenta, Montrose, Atwater Village, and Sunland-Tujunga.
