Venice Current – Traci Park Announces Candidacy for LA Council District 11

July 2, 2021

VENICE – Today, local attorney and community leader Traci Park officially launched her campaign for Los Angeles City Council District 11. Park, a Venice resident, made the following statement as she kicked off a listening tour of the 11th District.

“Our community is in a crisis, and it is a crisis of leadership. Los Angeles is failing in its basic task to maintain a safe, livable city – let alone tackling tough problems like homelessness, our housing crisis, climate change and struggling small businesses,” said Park.

“LA has the highest poverty rate in California, and some of the highest housing costs anywhere in the country. Our homeless crisis has exploded, our City Hall has been beset by corruption scandals, and for the first time in a century, people are leaving Los Angeles.”

Park said the City’s own data show that our District lost more jobs than almost any other area of Los Angeles. “Our homeless issues have made Venice and the Westside synonymous with encampments and a symbol of the City’s inability to act on critical issues.”
