Los Angeles City Council District 12
The Primary Election for the open, vacant City Council District 12 seat was held on Tuesday, June 4th and 15 candidates were in the race. Two candidates emerged to become the top two vote getters in the race and face one another for the General Election on August 13, 2019.
These two candidates were Loraine Lundquist and John Lee.
This will be an incredibly important election for the future of Los Angeles and for the Los Angeles Fire Department. At a recent meeting that was open to ALL members who were interested in hearing from the two run-off candidates, it was determined by a vote of the membership that the decision to make a possible endorsement in this runoff election would be delegated to the UFLAC Political Action Committee (PAC) which consists of Chairman Freddy Escobar, Chuong Ho, Domingo Albarran, and Frank Lima.
On July 1, 2020 we will be hosting a Special Meeting where members will have the ability to decide if they are willing to authorize UP TO $250,000 on this runoff election on August 13th in support of the candidate that the PAC Committee decides to endorse. Both candidates have informed us that the UFLAC endorsement is their top endorsement and that if they were able to secure our endorsement, they feel comfortable that they would win this race. If we were to not only make an endorsement, but also spend a decent amount of money supporting our candidate, we feel comfortable that we will win this election and have a true ally on the LA City Council in District 12 for many years to come.
Feel free to come to this meeting and ask the hard questions and hear from your UFLAC PAC Committee Members. This is going to be an incredibly important election and we want to hear from all of our members.
