Monday, October 27, 2014 PDT
Joe Buscaino is a member of the Los Angeles City Council, elected on January 17, 2012 to fill the vacancy left by Janice Hahn, following her successful bid for US Congress. He was re-elected to his first full four-year term on March 5, 2013.
Councilman Buscaino quickly won the respect of his City Council colleagues, and was appointed by the Council President to serve as Chairman of the powerful Public Works & Gang Reduction Committee. As Chair, Buscaino is tasked with oversight of the City’s gang reduction efforts, and the Department of Public Works. Public Works is the City’s third largest department and is comprised of a staff of more than 5,000 employees who are responsible for the construction, renovation, and operation of City facilities and infrastructure. The Department builds the City’s streets, installs its sewers, and constructs storm drains as well as public buildings, rights-of-way, and service facilities.
Councilman Buscaino’s other committee assignments include Public Safety, Trade, Commerce & Tourism, Housing, and Arts, Parks, Health, Aging & River. In addition, he serves as the Mayor’s appointee to the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
