WASHINGTON – Today, Congressmember Karen Bass (D-CA) issued the following statement on the death of former Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge:

“Yesterday, we lost a lifelong public servant and beloved historian in Tom LaBonge – someone who absolutely loved Los Angeles and all the people in it. Tom’s tenure on the city council and his decades of service prior helped enrich our city’s future while restoring our important past. Tom’s friendship and his assistance when I was running my very first election to Congress are both things I will cherish. My thoughts are with Tom’s family during this difficult time.”
