We congratulate LAPD Officer Joe Buscaino, who today was declared the winner in the election to fill the 15th District L.A. City Council seat, left vacant by now-congresswoman Janice Hahn.
Residents overwhelmingly chose to place their trust in the hometown candidate, a graduate of San Pedro High School and 14-year LAPD veteran. Buscaino may be an “average Joe,” as he frequently called himself during the campaign, but he nevertheless brings firsthand knowledge of the needs of his district and the city, and leadership experience from his years as a Senior Lead Officer at Harbor Division.
Buscaino’s energy and commitment to his neighborhood and the city bode well for the city’s future. We congratulate him once again and look forward to working with him and the rest of the Council to meet the city’s problems head on.
