Erin Darling

Erin Darling was born and raised in Venice and attended public schools from kindergarten through law school. After graduating law school Erin returned to Los Angeles and began representing low-income tenants facing eviction at the height of the foreclosure crisis. Erin later worked on large class actions, including on behalf of the United Farm Workers. In private practice Erin has represented women sexually assaulted by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies and children brutalized in the foster care system. Erin has served on the Venice Neighborhood Council and currently serves as a Commissioner for LA County’s Department of Beaches and Harbors. He still lives in Venice, with his wife and 3-year-old son. He is running to keep working people on the Westside, to create more affordable housing, push LA to 100% renewable energy by 2035, and address the housing and homelessness crisis with compassion and best use practices, not scapegoating and vitriol.  
Erin is proud to have been endorsed by the LA Times, the LA County Democratic Party, Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, State Senator Ben Allen, Assemblyperson Isaac Bryan, Councilmember Mike Bonin, LA County Young Democrats, Stonewall Democrats, Working Families Party, Sunrise Movement, Youth Climate Strike, UNITE HERE, ILWU, Carpenters, and many others.  
Traci Park 
My name is Traci Park, and I am running for city hall to represent our city’s westside. As a municipal law attorney with more than two decades of experience, I know what it takes to turn ideas into action. And I have a lot of ideas on how we can improve our city for all Angelinos. A third-generation Angelino and daughter to a blue-collar family, I will bring the same hard work, determination, and public service ethic that I was raised with to my role as city councilwoman. Every day I am grateful to be an Angeleno and to take part in a city rich with diversity and history. As a councilwoman, I will take on our most urgent challenges, from crime and homelessness to sustainability and affordability with everything I have. As the Westside’s representative in City Hall, I will work for change and progress in our beautiful and diverse westside community.
