Traci Park for City Council proudly announces the endorsement of the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association (LAAPOA), with more than 1,200 law enforcement, park rangers, and municipal security personnel.
“Traci Park is a strong advocate for public safety and sound environmental policies that will benefit her constituents in the district and the City of Los Angeles as a whole,” LAAPOA President Marshall McClain said. “LAAPOA is proud to give her our endorsement and support in her race for the 11th Council District seat.”
“Restoring the safety of our community is one of the core reasons I entered this race. I am so grateful for the support of the LAAPOA and proud to stand with them on the side of a safer community and protecting one of the lynch-pins of our economy here in Los Angeles,” said Park.
The Airport Police Department is a division of Los Angeles World Airports, the City department that owns and operates two airports in Southern California: LAX and Van Nuys. The birth of the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association (LAAPOA) can be traced to a single event in the history of the Department: the 1984 Summer Games. These games will return to LA in 2028, and Park noted the role of LAAPOA in keeping the City’s visitors safe.
“Approximately 90 million passengers move through LAX in an average year, which also serves as one of the largest hubs for cargo and freight in the US,” continued Park. “As we prepare for major events, including the Super Bowl this month and the Olympics later this decade, we are extremely fortunate to have the men and women represented at LAAPOA working to keep our City and its visitors safe.”
A practicing attorney for 20 years, Traci advises and represents businesses and public entities, including cities, counties, and other agencies throughout the State of California. She works on the forefront of the most pressing municipal and business issues in our State, which positions her well to be an influential and respected member of the LA City Council.
