Tim McOsker aims to extend his history of public service by representing Council District 15.

With decades of government and nonprofit experience under his belt, McOsker believes his leadership and political know-how to secure much needed resources for the 250,000+ residents in CD15.  Also, he is a native of the area and intimately familiar with the history and potential that the region possesses.

“I’ve lived in the district my entire life,” said McOsker, who worked many years under James K. Hahn during Hahn’s tenure as L.A. city attorney and mayor.   “I had a great experience, but it has always been in the back of my mind that when the opportunity arises to give back to the city that gave so much to me that I would do it.”

The Watts community, where many African Americans still reside, plays a big part in his intention to give back and he’s committed to make the concerns of the region a priority if he is elected. 

“Watts is a community with great potential and a real desire to build up retail development, job opportunities and developing properties,” McOsker said. 

“We want visitors to come to Watts to experience it and to experience the music, food, urban farming, the towers and just the culture and the environment of the place. That's my hope.”

Other priorities for McOsker are resolving homelessness and creating affordable housing, rebuilding the economy and creating more jobs, improving public health and safety, combatting climate change and restoring trust and transparency in city government.
