In my work as a security guard near the Venice boardwalk, I’ve had many encounters with homeless folks. One resulted in me losing a Finger. I’m a Firsthand witness to our ongoing mental health and drug use crisis and I’m so glad that people such as Traci Park are stepping up. I know she resigned from her successful law partnership to serve our community. Thank you so much, Traci.

Traci Justin Gordon endorses Traci ParkI’m backing Traci because I’ve seen firsthand how she views her primary role as advocating for the residents of CD11, not her own ideological agenda. She’s an amazing listener, has a brilliant legal mind, and will work to build coalitions. The Westside will get a fresh start with Traci.”

Traci Park with KrishnaI’ve seen how much Traci cares about Pacific Palisades, because she’s been out here many times to learn what matters to all of us who live here. And I know she’s done the same thing all over our district. She’s warm, compassionate, and accessible. I totally trust her to represent our interests at City Hall.

Krishna Thangavelu
Beaches and Parks 4 All

It is my honor to endorse Traci Park for a seat on the LA City Council because I believe it is important for the constituents of the 11th district to vote into office an individual capable of restoring the deficits suffered over the past two terms. Traci has great intellect, knowledge of the district’s geography, demographics, and unique issues – and she has comprehensively researched remedies for district problems that would benefit us all.

Allan Zuckerman
Retired LA County Sheriff’s Deputy

I have had the privilege of working with Traci Park for over 20 years in her capacity as counsel to some of the largest municipalities in Southern California. In this capacity, Traci worked closely with elected and appointed officials throughout California. She developed a deep network of colleagues who respected her legal acumen and practical approach of addressing legal challenges grounded in public policy. She also gained a profound insight into the workings of governmental agencies ranging from small local districts, large cities and counties rivaling the size of the City of Los Angeles, to sprawling state and federal governing and regulatory agencies.

Traci was always a zealous advocate for her clients. While we often found ourselves on opposite sides of legal disputes, she approached each conflict as a problem to solve quickly and efficiently. Traci is one of those rare individuals who will assume her position on the City Council with a keen knowledge of City operations, budgeting, and services.

Traci will be as faithful a public servant as she was a practicing attorney. We can confidently rely on Traci to protect the public treasury and preserve the public trust.

Arnold P. Peter
Attorney At Law, Peter Law Group

I’ve personally known and worked with Traci Park for many years. She is a leader on public sector issues and a highly skilled attorney. She will bring her years of experience solving complex municipal problems to the Los Angeles City Council, and I know she will fight to best serve her constituents.

Brock Avery

Traci Park and Bonbrights at a Cafe showing GratitudeTraci is a dream candidate for CD 11. She is smart, talented, and will dig in. Traci deeply understands and is passionate about the issues, including how important local businesses are to our economy. Best of all, she is outside of the “politics as usual model” and will absolutely get our community back on the right track.

Chris and Lisa Bonbright
Café Gratitude Venice

Traci Park was the first person to step into the ring against the failing reign of Mike Bonin, and has been on the front lines of this battle since Day 1, engaging communities and showing true leadership. That matters. CD11 deserves a councilmember who will always be on the ground, focused on common sense, and leading from honesty and a community-first approach. Traci will do that.

Craig Greiwe
Mayoral Candidate and Founder, Rise Together

Mike Gatto endorsed Traci ParkI’m endorsing Traci Park for Los Angeles City Council. While others have just talked, I know Traci to be a consistent and tireless worker for safer streets and real solutions to the homelessness crisis. She is by far the best choice to restore safe streets for the Westside.

Traci Park endorsed by Barbara KohnTraci has been visiting residents in the Palisades this past year and from the first time I met her I liked her. She came to hear what we thought and what we needed! She responded to our concerns in a way that showed me she was listening and understood our concerns. Traci’s vision puts families and communities first and that’s what CD 11 desperately needs. I support her 100% and urge you to do the same.

Barbara Kohn
Current president, Pacific Palisades Historical Society; former president, Pacific Palisades Community Council; member, Pacific Palisades Design Review Board; former president, Pacific Palisades Residents Association; Prop K representative, CD 11 north (15 years)

Traci Park is the only candidate in the race who is bold enough to do what needs to be done on the issue of homeless and related crime and safety issues. She has a clear vision for a better CD11. She is a true stakeholder in our community, not a politician trying to ride the merry-go-round of a life in elected office.

Bob Carlson
CEO, Arbor Collective

One of the things I like best about Traci is the way she works to unite the residents of CD11. She’s been to the Palisades many times, and I know she’s done the same all over the district. Instead of pitting neighborhoods against each other, Traci brings people together to achieve our shared objectives.”

She is smart, she does her homework and she knows the issues. Traci also has the grit to get things done that need to be done.

Theresa Torrance endorses Traci Park“I am supporting Traci Park because she has the skills, experience, and passion to effectuate much-needed change. We need a leader who respects the voices of the community as a whole, and can address matters responsibly and with compassion. She will make sure to provide the services and resources needed for the unhoused and clean up our city and make it safer for everyone.

Theresa Torrance
Neighborhood Council of Westchester/Playa*

“Traci Park is the only candidate who can provide a fresh perspective and renewed enthusiasm to lead CD11 and Los Angeles into a future that adequately addresses the complex problems we face. Whether that’s resolving homelessness in our public spaces, reassessing the dwindling effectiveness of city services, or re-engaging the community in local governance, she has the intelligence, clarity and tenacity to make changes happen.

Brennan Lindner
Friends of Venice Boardwalk, Venice Chamber Board of Directors, Venice Neighborhood Council (former)*

CD11 needs to “Park It” with Traci Park because we need our parks to be safe from homelessness and crime. The same can be said for our streets, which have become “mean streets” instead of walkable streets. Kindness, conviction, and unity should be the hallmark of a council district that wants to fix, and not merely exploit, problems that impact all of us. We need a Councilmember who listens, and who isn’t tone-deaf to those who are suffering on our streets – or who don’t want live in daily fear of increasing crime and decreased quality of life. We need CD11 to be a place for people to move to, and not flee from.

Ken Alpern, M.D.
Mar Vista Community Council (MVCC) founding member and 15-year board member, and former co-chair of the MVCC Transportation, Planning, and Outreach Committees

Phil Brock endorsed Traci ParkThe relationship between Santa Monica and CD11 is absolutely vital to the success of LA’s Westside. Traci’s vision follows our shared values and I look forward to working with her to solve homelessness and make our communities safe.

Phil Brock

I worked side by side with Traci for a number of years on complex and serious legal cases. She was an exceptionally sharp and intuitive co-counsel. We achieved positive results for our clients on some very difficult issues.
