Legendary Political Consultant Joe Cerrell dead at 75
“Joe Cerrell was a friend and inspiration to me for more than 30 years, and I will miss him dearly,” said Councilmember Paul Krekorian. “When I was an 18-year-old student at USC, Joe was my professor and my mentor. When I restarted the first USC Trojan Democratic Club in many years, and served as its president, Joe was my guide, helping to impart the lessons community empowerment that have been the cornerstone of my public service career. Joe was the dean of political consultants and personified honest, ethical and responsible campaigning. While I am deeply saddened to lose Joe, I know that his influence on me and everyone whose lives he touched will never be forgotten and will be his lasting legacy.”
Our prayers go out to the Cerrell Family.
