This landmark in the surging Traci Park for City Council campaign came as the City Clerk’s office announced Traci’s nominating petitions had been signed by at least 500 registered voters of CD11.
“This campaign is on fire,” said Rick Taylor, Traci’s campaign strategist. “Traci’s nominating petitions were signed by well over a thousand voters who want her to be their next councilperson, and all we needed were 500 signatures to qualify.”
News that Traci was now qualified to have her name on the June 7 primary ballot comes only days after the candidate scooped up another key public safety endorsement. Traci’s latest endorsement was from the Los Angeles Police Protective League that represents the 9,000+ rank-and-file men and women police officers.
Traci is also endorsed by the Los Angeles Airport Police Officers Association, which includes members of the LAX police, the fourth largest law enforcement agency in Los Angeles County, the LA Municipal Police, and the City’s Park Rangers.
The Park campaign has received as of March 1 more than $428,000 in contributions and City matching funds, putting her head and shoulders over the other contenders for the District 11 seat. This large field of candidates are seeking the seat now held by Councilman Mike Bonin, who chose not to seek reelection.
