Sophia Tse, candidate for Cerritos City Council and current ABCUSD Board Member, has apparently been using Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe’s endorsement on some of her campaign materials without the Supervisor’s permission.

Supervisor Knabe had asked Tse “several times” to stop using his endorsement on her campaign material but finally, after Tse mailed out another campaign piece to Cerritos residents this week, Knabe went public about the false endorsement.

Knabe, a resident of Cerritos, said in a statement, “despite my repeated pleas to stop misusing my name, Sophia Tse continues to send a campaign mailer which implies my endorsement, which I have never given. Further, Ms. Tse did not seek permission to use a letter which I had written to her in a very different context. I have tried to contact Ms. Tse several times, asking that the flier stop being used and I have been ignored. In fact, just yesterday, more of these mailers were delivered throughout Cerritos. I am now forced to ask publicly for Ms. Tse to cease using this mailer and to remove my name from any and all of her campaign materials.”

Calls and emails into Tse went unreturned.
