AAA-Fund Endorses Warren Furutani for Los Angeles City Council
LOS ANGELES, CA – The Asian American Action Fund today endorsed State Assembly Member Warren Furutani for Los Angeles City Council. Furutani is running for City Council District 15, a seat vacated by Janice Hahn. If elected, he will be the second Asian American to serve on LA City Council.
“Warren Furutani is a true champion of the people,” said Gautam Dutta, Executive Director of the AAA-Fund. “He is a proven leader and consensus builder and we are proud to endorse him for Los Angeles City Council.”
Currently, Furutani represents the 55th Assembly district of California. He is a Democrat and a fourth-generation Japanese American. Furutani was elected in a special election in 2008, when he replaced Laura Richardson.
Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Furutani served on the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Community College District Board of Trustees. In 1987, he became the first Asian Pacific American ever elected to the LAUSD and was the Board’s President in 1991.

The AAA-Fund is a Democratic political action committee whose goal is to increase the voice of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders on every level of local, state and federal government in America. To achieve this goal, we address the chronic under-representation of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) as campaign volunteers, campaign contributors, and candidates for political office.
