Sebastien Ridley-Thomas is the son of County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. We have been unable to uncover any history of support for animal issues but he will vote with the Democratic Caucus, our main foundation of support for animal issues. Coupled with his endorsements and family name, he will be elected. We would like to tell him next year that we endorsed his candidacy and the animal advocates in his district helped his margin of victory.

THE LEAGUE OF HUMANE VOTERS ENDORSES TED LIEU FOR STATE SENATE DISTRICT 28
Quietly, effectively Ted Lieu has become the most successful legislator on behalf of animal protection since the League of Humane Voters began keeping records. He has authored over 5 landmark bills in the last 8 years, culminating withal the successful bill to ban the use of radio collared dogs for the hunting of bears and bobcats, a deed many former legislators had tried and failed to accomplish. He has authored a bill to require shelters to microchip animals that are adopted out.
Unfortunately, this was vetoed by the Governor. He authored a bill to outlaw the sale of pets on public streets and strip malls. He has authored bills to forbid the sale of pets at Swap Meets and Flea Markets, which has as yet not gotten the support from the legislature required for passage. Ted Lieu in the most important animal protection legislator in California and he needs to be returned to his seat in the State Senate.
