Santa Monica Vice Mayor Warns of Misinformation Ahead of November Election

Santa Monica’s vice mayor says misinformation campaigns by politically driven unions have become a problem in the city, and she wasn’t afraid to call out a recent example.

Lana Negrete was elected to the City Council in 2022 despite tens of thousands of dollars spent by her opponents. According to Ms. Negrete, a longtime renter and registered Democrat, she was falsely accused of being a criminal, a right-wing sympathizer, and even being anti-rent control despite living in a rent-controlled unit for decades, all in a failed attempt to defeat her.

“This misinformation campaign is what worries me the most about the city because we have an upcoming election,” she said during an hourlong interview with California Insider.

Unite Here Local 11—a hospitality workers union that represents over 32,000 employees—spent thousands during the 2022 election to defeat her, according to Ms. Negrete, who first joined the council in 2021 after filling the seat of retired Kevin McKeown.
