Rep. Bass Celebrates Deal For Los Angeles To Host 2028 Summer Olympics

July 31, 2017
Press Release
LOS ANGELES – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement following the International Olympic Committee’s announcement that Los Angeles will host the Summer Games in 2028. This will be the third time Los Angeles hosted the event, first in 1932 and then in 1984.

“I remember the excitement in 1984 and the opportunity that the Games brought – not just to showcase our city to the world, but to embrace efforts to further improve the lives of those in Los Angeles. As someone that grew up here and has lived my entire life here, it’s an incredible feeling to be able to give our city the spotlight it deserves. Congratulations to Mayor Garcetti and to the City Council of Los Angeles, both of whom have worked tirelessly for years to make today’s announcement a reality.”
