Meet Councilwoman

Suzie Price

Suzie Price and her single mother never dreamed Suzie would run for office.

But when Suzie found City Hall unwilling to build a crosswalk to keep her kids safe, she ran for Long Beach City Council and won. As Councilwoman, Suzie has used her experience as a criminal prosecutor and working mom to move past empty rhetoric and deliver results. Now Suzie is running for Mayor because if Long Beach is going to remain a place where you can afford to raise a family, buy a home, and start a business, we can’t afford empty promises; we need someone who gets the job done.


Suzie’s Back to Basics agenda is focused on improving the quality of life for everyone, no matter what neighborhood you live in.

At a time when career politicians are focused on partisanship, ideology and big promises, Suzie has proven to be an independent leader who puts partisan politics aside to deliver results for her community. 


Born in North Carolina, Suzie lived in Iran until she was 7 years old, when Suzie and her mother move to Southern California to flee political violence.

Like so many others, she and her mother were looking for freedom and opportunity.

She learned how to speak English as she completed her primary education and went on to obtain a BA and MA in Public Policy and Administration from CSULB. She earned her JD from Santa Clara Law School in 1999. Her mother worked as a nurse in a public school setting for 40 years.


While interning in law school, Suzie helped a young rape victim obtain justice, and through that experience found her calling.

Suzie has served as a criminal prosecutor and victims’ rights advocate for over 20 years, putting domestic abusers, rapists, and violent criminals behind bars and seeking a voice for those who have been victimized by crime.


On the Council, Suzie serves as chair of the public safety committee, where she spearheaded the police body camera program and invested in police training, while also increasing street patrols.

She also created the city-wide unarmed response teams program which connects people experiencing homelessness in crisis with City and regional care centers. As mayor, Suzie will build on these successes to keep our streets safe and clean and to connect people who are suffering the housing and services they need. 


Suzie and her husband Mark, a military veteran, have lived in Long Beach for 20 years where they are raising their two boys and running their small business together.

As a small business owner herself, Suzie knows firsthand how difficult it is to keep a small business afloat, especially as costs rise. On the City Council, Suzie worked with local businesses to cut through the red tape and keep their doors open. And as mayor, Suzie will fight to make it easier for small businesses to grow and create jobs.
